Triumph TR7T Tiger Trail
They didn't make many, and they didn't sell many. And today these 750cc Tigers fetch a premium over the standard T140 Bonneville. But are they really worth the money?
▲ TR7T Triumph Tiger Trail. At heart, it's a T140 Bonneville, but Meriden was desperate to exploit new markets for its core product that was long in the tooth and falling out of favour. For serious off-road work, it's not ideal. But it has its moments.
▲ That's a T140 silencer, cut, reworked, welded. Yikes. ▲ Idiotic idea for idiot lights. But Triumph was skint.
▲ Triumph TR6T. 650cc. Short stroke. Black finished engine. ▲ Rear TR7T/TR6T drum brake. Works well. Smart move.
