Built as a military bike using a side valve engine in a TR5 frame. Some 16000 built. Used by most NATO countries plus Pakistan and others. Bike still in their original packing case still appear from time to time.
Spares might be problem if unique to TRW. Definitely out there somewhere but where? Other parts standard Triumph and readily available. TR5 (Trophy) manual of the time should help.
Where about are you?

I have one myself and have never had a problem with spares. There's a company here in Nova Scotia that has been able to get most anything.
They're not the fastest, but they are very cool. Mine is currently undergoing a rebuild back to it's original military specs.

Your TRW

Hello "MT"
I am one of the oldies, in fact in 1952 I was in the RAF Regiment stationed in Germany and we were issued with the very first TRW Triumphs and I didn't get one until a bit later! However I did clock up a lot of miles on one and they were good for around 75mph. Not spectacular but a very good off road machine by virtue of their Trophy heritage. A friend of mine is in the process of restoring a 1952 model TRW and my wife took some photos yesterday. His engine/frame number is 22817NA. Where about in the world are you?
Regards Rock Ape.

Hi BBB,
Welcome to the forum, you've got some nice stuff on your website

Webby

BTW, there is a french expression that says "the best things in life are the 3 Bs" The 3 Bs being roughly (politely?) translated as Food, Drink and Sex

Tech handbook location:

This is a link to a club in england that has a copy of the manual.

The Furness British Motorcycle Club located in the North West of England town of Barrow in Furness.

Contact page:

http://www.fbmcc.co.uk/contact.html

To borrow any of the titles please contact Tony Gee on club nights.

(i'd say if you approach Tony with a few bucks he'd probably be willing to photocopy or scan the manual for you)

heres the library page:

http://www.fbmcc.co.uk/library.html



(#52 on the page)

Technical Handbook - TRIUMPH 500cc TRW Engine Nos 14401N to 25764NA

good luck! i helped some triumph newbies with one here in Vancouver BC recently. the TRW's have a very distinct note to the exhaust, you'll love it. Flatheads Forever!
