1971 Triumph Tiger Custom



Additional photos on this 1971 Triumph Tiger Custom are available here for your perusal.

The “Tiger” name has been quite a popular one for Triumph, dating all the way back to the 30s. We know it now as an adventure bike that goes back to 1993, but back in 1970 the British firm bestowed the jungle cat nomenclature on the TR6. The 649cc air-cooled parallel twin pushed 42 horsepower through a 4-speed transmission with a right-side shifter.

This example is VIN: BE12254. The seller purchased this from Jesse Spade, a bike customizer based in Atlanta, and has owned it for three years.

The total mileage is unknown, the seller has put very little miles on it since owning it.

The seller states that this bike was just serviced, calling it “a great little runner or a badass office piece.” Currently located in Brentwood, Tennessee, this Triumph is offered on a clean Tennessee title. Have any questions about this listing? Let us know in the “Comments” tab!
