First made in the Coventry works in 1953 and produced until 1961, this purposeful looking Triumph was the fastest production motorcycle to date.

The T110 was developed from the Thunderbird and appeared in 1954. In 1956 a heavily modified T110 secured the motorcycle Land Speed Record on Bonneville Salt Flats in the hands of Johnny Allen.

This lovely looking example is finished in immaculate silver blue with dual seat in black. The 650cc twin has the alloy cylinder head and clearly a careful restoration has taken place. It has been cherished by its current enthusiast custodian.

There is a modest file containing the V5C registration certificate showing three former keepers, together with correspondence with Meriden about a possible upgrade to Bonneville Spec.
