The 500 cc Triumph Tiger 100 Daytona (T100T) was developed by Triumph’s Chief Engineer and designer Doug Hele and launched as a production motorcycle the following year. Based on the setup developed for the 1966 Daytona races, the T100T was fitted with a new cylinder head and twin Amal Monobloc carburetors. The valve angle was reduced by two degrees, and the intake valve size increased. Derived from Edward Turner’s original twin-cylinder design and a development of the Triumph Tiger, the ‘Daytona’ sacrificed low-speed tractability for a pronounced power step at 3,500 rpm that helped it to compete with the advanced designs from Japanese manufacturers. In 1969, the timing side main bush was replaced with a ball-bearing race and a roller on the drive side, which helped engine life. The later model Daytonas were upgraded with E3134 race profile cams for both inlet and exhaust and strengthened followers, valve guides, and performance connecting rods.

One of our clients picked this particular Daytona at auction a few years ago; it was bought as a restored classic that the restorer never got running. Since then, it has been fully serviced and made road worthy again. The bike has a new ignition, carburetors, petcocks, fuel lines, tires and tubes, and a new headlight switch, and the carburetors have been synchronized and tuned. There are a few small oil leaks that the next owner can address. The bike is being sold as is.

    From our customers


    100% impressed over and over again by Jeff & Co at Revival. They’re patient and kind no matter the enquiry (currently resto-modding an R100/7 and have LOTS of questions about the Motogadget rewire) and go out of their way to offer creative solutions and out of the box thinking. I will forever return and recommend Revival.

    I cannot recommend Revival Cycles enough. Not only do they have a great assortment of gear and accessories but they provide superb customer service. I was having some difficulty making it work... Jeff pointed out what I was missing and also provided schematics to make it work. Thank you guys very kindly, your crew rocks.
