1962 Triumph T20 SH Sports Cub restoration is taking on character!

The mudguards and tank have now all been re-painted. As you can see it is coming along really well!

This bike has a remarkable story. In 1962/3 Dave Young (owner of Bol D’or Motorcycles) bought a Triumph Sports Cub, brand new. (He was 16).

Then, completely out of the blue, he had a telephone call from a man who lives only 15 miles away, who asked if he was still buying in old classic bikes; Dave went to see it and bought it. The bike had been garaged for several years; therefore the original registration number had been reclaimed by DVLA. However, whilst reading through all the paperwork, we found the old registration document... and made the amazing discovery that this bike is the original Cub that Dave bought all those years ago!

This bike has a remarkable story. In 1962/3 Dave Young (owner of Bol D’or Motorcycles) bought a Triumph Sports Cub, brand new. (He was 16).

Last week, completely out of the blue he had a telephone call from a man who lives only 15 miles away, who asked if he was still buying in old classic bikes; Dave went to see it and bought it. The bike had been garaged for several years; therefore the original registration number had been reclaimed by DVLA. However, whilst reading through all the paperwork, we found the old registration document... and made the amazing discovery that this bike is the original Cub that Dave bought all those years ago!

There were only 600 of this particular model ever made and we have an old black & white photo of him riding it!

The bike is now being stripped down and lovingly restored to its former glory, – by the former proud owner!
