1972 Triumph Tiger

A family friend is helping her stepfather sell his 1972 Triumph T100R Tiger Daytona. This is an interesting motorcycles for a handful of reasons. First, 1972 was the last year Triumph built a 500cc bike. The 500's preserve the desirable esthetic of the pre-1971 650's built prior to the oil-in-the-frame (OIF) design. In fact the paint scheme is almost identical to the 1970 Bonneville. The '72 has some modern amenities the early bikes don't (like turn signals) but still have the traditional right side shift. Her stepdad is British and this is a UK domestic market motorcycle that was imported to the US.
 I don't have the precise mileage but it's a highly original low mileage bike. Contact me if you know anyone that's interested and I can put you in touch with the seller.
