BaT Auction: 1972 Triumph Daytona T100R 500cc

BaT Auction: 1972 Triumph Daytona T100R 500cc

This 1972 Triumph Daytona T100R is said to have remained with its first owner for 30 years before its restoration by friend of the seller, from whom it was purchased three years ago. The bike is powered by a 490cc parallel twin coupled to a 4-speed transmission, and fewer than 200 of its 10k indicated miles have been added since 2015. This Daytona is sold with a tool roll, owner’s booklet, restoration receipts, and transferable Maine registration.

The bike features a 2.75-gallon tank, US-spec handlebars, and ventilated twin leading shoe front brakes. The tank and fenders were refinished in cherry red with white accents, the chrome was replated, the seat was reupholstered, and rubber parts were replaced. Rebuilt chrome wire wheels wear Dunlop K70 tires.

The Daytona offered rubber-mounted dual instrumentation with warning lights located in the headlight shell, and the turn signal stalks appear to have been shortened on this example. The odometer reads just under 10,500 miles. Many NOS Triumph parts were reportedly used during the rebuild.

The air-cooled 490cc parallel twin produced 41 horsepower when new and is linked to a 4-speed transmission shifted from the right side. The engine and transmission were rebuilt as part of the restoration and dual 26mm Amal concentric carburetors were fitted.

Records from the previous owner’s work are included along with more recent service receipts. The bike is sold with transferable Maine registration, as the state does not require titles for vehicles of this age.
