1936 Triumph Tiger 80 Pictures

Add Your Photos!

During 1936, Edward Turner took over the Triumph factory and decided to update the existing Val Page designs. This was done in stages by updating existing models to produce an interim Tiger range until the new ranges were ready to be introduced. This is one of these interim models.

It retains the twin down tube frame, gearbox, petrol tank, fork adjusters and tool box of the earlier model, but with the later type engine. This lovely machine is on display at the Coventry Transport Museum.

On display at the 2010 Footman James Classic Motor Show, at the NEC.  Read the blog for more event details.

    I have one of these bikes but i need the front forks.Where did you get them from and all the body,Can you please reply

  2. The 1936 bike shown does not have a ‘later’ type engine, it has an older open valve engine design updated to include a rocker cover and lubrication that was fitted to all Tiger 80′s in ’36, ’37 ,’38, ’39 and ’40. there never was an update. It does have the twin down tube frame that was too expensive to continue in later years and a gearbox only fitted to ’36 models. “36′s are very rare, they were almost prototypes. I have a ’37 model, love it!
