A detailed account of the development history of Triumph's most successful 500cc twin. Commencing with the introduction of the sporting Tiger 100 model in 1939, it continues right through until the production ceased in 1974. The first part of the book relates to the original separate engine and gearbox designs and the second part covers the redesigned unit construction models that took on a new name - that of the American road racing event in which they scored notable successes. This reissue is fully illustrated with photographs depicting complete machines and component parts to show where changes have been made. It includes authentic line drawings from the archives of the old Triumph engineering company, and detailed specifications of each model on a year-to-year basis including those for the American market and the many changes in colour schemes.
