1949 Triumph Speed Twin


1949 Triumph Speed Twin 500cc . This is the first year that the nacelle was fitted to the speed twin whilst still retaining the chrome tank. there after In 1950 the tank was painted, making this a unique and rare transitional year. This example is in great condition having been restored a few years ago with matching engine and frame numbers. Comes with its original buff log book confirming the original numbers. Starts well and sounds great! this is an excellent example and the only 1949 for sale !
