So There We Have It ... A Near Perfect Pre-War Tiger , From A Bygone Era ! The Last Time We Had One Of These Beauty's , I Thought I'd Take It Out For A Quick Ride Round The Block . An Hour Later , I Got Back ! It Performed So Well And I Enjoyed It So Much , That I Just Couldn't Stop Riding It! It Felt Like A Lightweight , Compared To The 50's And 60's Tigers That I Had Ridden And It Felt Even Quicker! You Sit In These / Rather Than Sit On It /As It Has A Lower Seat Height Than The 50's And 60's Ones , So If Your Only 5 Foot 8 , Like Me , Or Less ! You Have Both Feet Planted Firmly On The Deck , With Knees Bent , So Feel Perfectly In Control , When Stopping ; Stopped And Accelerating Away / Again Unlike The Later Higher And Heavier Tigers !

As You Can Probably Gather , I'm A Real Pre-War Tiger Fan And Should Really Keep This Well Sorted , Original Example. If You Get A Chance To Ride One , I'm Sure You Would Fall In Love With It Too ! If You Rule Out Monetary Values And Rarity , I would Choose To Own One Of These Over A Pre-War Vincent Twin , Or A Brough Superior , As I Think Its Prettier ; Much Lighter , As Fast Off The Line , Easier To Handle And Easier To Strip-Down And Maintain! As Rare And Very Desirable ; Everyone Who's Lucky Enough To Own One , Is Obviously Hanging Onto It , As They Know How Good They Are! That's Why You Will See More Vincent's And Brough's For Sale , Than Great Tiger 100 's Like We Have Here ! For This Reason , This Ones Obviously A Great Investment !! Be Quick , As This Beautiful " Flying Machine " Will Create Great Interest !
