Triumph Tiger Cub T20 1955 and 1958 double dose!

Some time back Steve C. from Manta Automotive purchased two Triumph Tiger Cubs from us and in a matter of months pulled off two incredible restorations. The condition of the bikes to start with would have scared off the staunchest restorers but Steve was not phased.

First off the line was this 1958 T20, a basket case to say the least.

Rare parts, if not all requiring reconditioning, then probably replacing. Not an easy way to start building a bike but hard work and determination will pay off.

As if Steve didn't have his hands full with the 58 he also grabbed our old 1955 Cub. An even harder build to knock off.

Some beautiful old original parts that are almost impossible to source these days.

Almost a bare bone project, the 55 would be tempting to do custom a bobber out of but then again...

Two incredible Tiger Cubs bought back to life from a pile of parts. These bikes could not have fallen into better hands. Steve, my hat comes off to you!
