The 1967 Triumph T100C Tiger motorcycle was part of a complete line of small and mid-size motorcycles that Triumph built throughout the 1950s and 1960s. This line was aimed specifically at the first-time rider.
The Tiger 100 was one of the most popular motorcycles in this line and was introduced in 1960 as the T100A. A vertical twin of 500 cc displacement, it wore two-tone paint and "bathtub" tank badges.
In 1966, the Tiger received a thorough makeover. A new frame combined with better forks improved handling and stability. Two-tone paint continued, but tank badges were changed to a new "eyebrow" style.
Offered alongside the T100A touring model was the T100C, an on/off-road bike that sported a smaller fuel tank and headlight, along with high-mounted twin exhaust pipes.
A skidplate was added to protect the underside of the engine during off-road excursions, and an alternator replaced the old Energy Transfer electric system. U.S. versions received alloy fenders in place of the steel units found on their European counterparts.
T100 models continued to be popular right into the 1970s, when in 1973 the T100C was reborn as the TR5T Trophy Trail.
