I was thumbing through some old pictures, and stumbled across these pics of a bike I saw at a show two or three years ago. I'm sure Bitmonkey will tell me what year it is, but looks pretty close to your new beauty...

The serial number indicates T100, but it has a dual carb (Thunderbird?) head... Is it a mish-mash of parts?

I think it's a '52 or '53 but they are very similar to mine. They added the the little pilot light under the headlight in '52. The '53 has a different taillight but I can't see the taillight in any of these pictures. This is an interesting bike. Triumph offered a "race kit" in the early 50's, they are pretty rare & very highly sought after. This bike has it.
