My 1967 Triumph T100R Daytona

As many of you know, 1967 was the first year for the Daytona. Actually it never said Daytona anywhere on the bike until 1968 but it was listed as a Daytona in the sales literature. So here is my all original 1967 Daytona. Still wears all original paint, number match, and she has just been resurrected and made to run. She runs great and is a blast to ride. Great companion for my 1968 Bonneville.

Wow! That's even a 60's Pepsi machine on your porch. When you do a resto, you even include the background. Now that's what I call a thorough restoration.

Funny, I didn't even realize that. Yes it is an old Pepsi machine that I mechanically restored. It still could use a new paint job. It dispenses bottles. You should see the rest of my house. I have lots of stuff from the 50's and 60's. Even have a 1952 Seeburg jukebox in my living room. Same model that Fonzie use to hit to make play at Arnold's.

Looks familiar, I bought a new '67, took it home, stripped it down and made a TT bike out of it. Wish I had pictures.

Says "Tiger" on the sidecover...

Hard to tell from the photo, but does it have 2 carbs?

Tiger = 1 carb
Daytona = 2 carbs

And, I believe 68 had the timing window w/ 3 screws holding the cover on the primary case (I have a spare primary cover w/ window & cover)

is there something else after 'Tiger' ? Anyway by chance I saw one identical today up close and in person. Recently completed restoration. Very very nice also. I only questioned the handlebars on it which seemed lower than the correct ones (I think) on your bike.


c'mon you Cats - Seb take a shot already!!
