Bike of the week: Triumph Daytona T100R 1971 3 owners, time warp, un-restored £7999

January 26, 2017

Fresh into stock, a May 1971 Triumph Daytona T100R. Matching numbers EE24170T100R. Manufactured on 27th May 1971, and dispatched on the 2nd June 1971 to Triumph dealers, Moores Motors, Tottenham England. On the 22nd June 1971, a Mr Keith Viglietta, a Boeing employee and a US citizen purchased the bike for £381.05 under Triumph Personal Export scheme. This meant that if you were a US citizen, you could buy the bike over here, and ride it around a bit then Triumph would ship to the US free of charge, probably to avoid the purchase tax of the time. The bike was then crated by Moores Motorcycles and exported to Baltimore by Aer Lingus on 28th August 1971 at a cost $127.27.

The bike is totally original, unrestored and untouched, the only thing that has been changed are the silencers for the original type, and new Amal carburettors have been fitted.  All the paintwork is original Triumph, and even comes with the original owners handbook and Triumph Sales Brochure showing the exact bike in that colour scheme.

 

The bike runs and rides like it should, the mileage is genuine as verified by the hand written service history, and requires nothing. Unit truly is an exceptional, and once in a life time find. A must for any serious collector.

 

The bike comes with:

 

Original Handbook (with work and services detailed by the owner in his hand writing)

original Tool kit

Both ignition keys, both steering lock keys on the original Moores Motorcycles leather key fob!

The original and only UK tax disc from 1st July 1971

Original Triumph Motorcycles Personal Export Scheme receipt.

Original Moores Motors purchase receipt

Original insurance certificate

Aer Lingus receipt and Air Waybill

Original Washington US Title

Triumph Owners Club Certificate of authenticity

Original Triumph Brochure

Triumph parts book

Triumph workshop manual

The bike is fully UK registered, and displaying its original number plate issued in 1971 and we have the V5C

 

In 2011, Mr Keith Viglietta sold the bike to his understudy at Boeing, a Mr Thomas Matzen, who then sold it to the only UK owner on 14th May 2012, mileage showing on the US Title at the time was 16,174.
