Triumph Tiger Daytona

British motorcycle

The Triumph Tiger Daytona is a motorcycle made by Triumph from 1967 to 1974.[1]

Development[edit]

1973 500cc Triumph T100R Daytona with aftermarket rear suspension units

The 'Daytona' name was derived from American rider Buddy Elmore's win at the 1966 Daytona 200 race held at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.[2] He achieved an average speed of 96.6 mph (155.5 km/h) on a 'works special' Triumph Tiger 100.[1]

The 500 cc Triumph Tiger 100 Daytona (T100T) was developed by Triumph's Chief Engineer and designer Doug Hele and launched as a production motorcycle the following year.[1] Based on the setup developed for the 1966 Daytona races, the T100T was fitted with a new cylinder head and twin Amal Monobloc carburettors. In the head, the valve angle was reduced by two degrees and the intake valve size increased as a result of testing; the valves on test engines had a worrying tendency to meet during the overlap period.[3]

Derived from Edward Turner's original twin-cylinder design and a development of the Triumph Tiger, the 'Daytona' sacrificed low-speed tractability for a pronounced power step at 3,500 rpm that helped it to compete with the advanced designs from Japanese manufacturers like Honda. As well as decreased engine flexibility, however, the increase in power reduced the life of the valve gear, leading to heavy oil consumption.

Gary Nixon won the 1967 Daytona 200 race on the newly designated Triumph Daytona.

In 1969, the timing side main bush was replaced with a ball-bearing race and a roller on the drive side which helped engine life.[4] At the 1969 Belgian motorcycle Grand Prix on the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in the Ardennes, Triumph's factory tester Percy Tait led the world champion Giacomo Agostini for three laps and finished second at an average speed of 116 mph (187 km/h) on the Daytona.[5]

The later model Daytonas were further upgraded with special E3134 race profile cams for both inlet and exhaust and strengthened followers, valve guides, and performance connecting rods.[6] While the Triumph 650 Bonneville and new 650 Tiger models received a new oil in frame and dramatically changed geometry for 1971, the Daytona kept the traditional unit era frame, which kept the frame and seat height of the previous model years.[7] The last Daytona model, the T100D, was fitted with a disc front brake but only 14 were built before the closure of the Meriden works in September 1973 and the 18-month 'sit-in' industrial action after which the Daytona models were discontinued.[1]

Purchased from original owner. I've never rode it. Bike was bought new in London England, British Green was applied the next day, "in a paint shop down the street." He didn't like the original color. It was used to travel around Europe, shipped to the states in '72, garaged, covered and never started again. 14,458 original miles. Original engine. Original everything. Another project I'll never get to.Bike does not start. Kick start doesn't engage, and the shifter doesn't engage either. You're buying a low mileage all original classic project. It's all there. Every piece. I have the original engine manual, operator manual, and Triumph note paper and envelopes they gave you when you bought a new one.I have a few more pics (engine and frame stamps, carb close up, etc.) Serial# XD36209 (yes, they match).Original owner has applied for a lost (clean) title, that should arrive in a week-10 days. (he's 88, he mis-placed it, give him a break).email questions to Don, If it's not gone in a week it'll be cross posted on ebay, etc.Rare opportunity here guys, not many around like this survivor anymore. Helluva fun project for someone younger than me.

1968 TRIUMPH T100R DAYTONA ***WATCH VIDEO ABOVE FOR A CLOSER LOOK*** Barn fresh and used as aesthetic display in my collection. Numbers matching frame/engine/title. Strong compression, working brakes, carb slides are free and tires hold air. I have never tried to start it. Just used it for its unique history and hand built parts for people to admire. Previous owner/builder used it for off road scrambles and hill climbing in Southern IL. and Indiana back in the 1970's and early '80's. Fuel tank is divided in half (left side oil tank/right side fuel). Custom seat section for better off road handling. That is about all I can say about it. It is SUPER cool. Comes with clear, open Illinois title. Matching numbers. Cheers Rules for buying: Shipping: Shipping costs are the buyers responsibility but I will work out the details with your shipper to load the bike up. I highly recommend Haulbikes.com and Keyboard Transports 100%. Bike is sold "As Is" and "Where Is". No warranty expressed or implied obviously BUT if you are in the area you are welcome and encouraged to come and physically inspect it anytime you like. I'm not an expert on these things so PLEASE ask anything anytime. I'm happy to answer. Nothing to hide here.

1967 Triumph T100C/R Daytona 500   Engine Number: T100R DD47608 Frame Number: T100C H50639   These are a blast to ride, and ride anywhere.    The beautifully presented and very well built 1967 Triumph T100 offered here was built by a capable enthusiast over about a year. Starting with a 1967 T100C frame, which was powdercoated along with the rest of the cycle parts, and fitted with a Daytona twin carb 500cc engine from April of 1970 build, arguably the best year of the engine. The engine was rebuilt from the sludge traps and crank up to valves, including new bearings?, seals, gaskets, rings, valves, etc. It runs well with good responsive power. For increased performance and reliability the bike runs on new carburetors. The gearbox was “gone-through” and shifts well through an excellent clutch. A new wiring harness was installed, with a new battery. Brakes are excellent, as is suspension. Tires are new.    The bike is cosmetically excellent, with fresh paint, powdercoating, chrome plating, etc. throughout. Having covered only 274 miles since the full rebuild, it still shows perfectly.    The bike starts easily and runs well. It handles really well, is light and nimble and a fantastic machine through city traffic and on the twisty country lanes.    contact me:[email protected]

1970 Triumph Daytona

1970 TRIUMPH DAYTONA – WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Triumph derived the name of this bike from Buddy Elmore’s win at the 1966 Daytona 200 at Daytona Beach FL riding a Triumph T100T Tiger 500 twin. It was Triumph’s first-ever Daytona victory, with an average speed of 96.6 mph. By 1967, it was an official production model with the designation T100R Daytona 500. Just to kick things off, Gary Nixon won the 1967 Daytona 200 on a new Triumph Daytona.

1970 TRIUMPH DAYTONA 500 BACKGROUND
Triumph master engineer Doug Hele completely reworked the cylinder head for the Daytona race bike such that 2 Amal carburetors were used (instead of the usual one), and the valve angles were reduced by 2-degrees to alleviate clearance problems between the two valves during overlap, due to the larger intake valves. Contrary to British custom, it was also an “oversquare” engine, meaning that the bore was larger than the length of the stroke. This made it “peaky”, meaning there was very little power at low RPMs, and it wasn’t until about 3500 RPM that it started to come alive. The valvetrain tended to wear out prematurely, causing excessive oil consumption. For the 1969 Triumph Daytona, they swapped the old timing-side bush (or bushing) for a ball bearing, and installed a roller bearing on the drive-side, greatly strengthening the bottom end and prolonging engine life.

This Triumph Daytona was named for the factory racers that won the 500cc Florida road race and features improvements that made for a reliable and wicked fast twin. The Daytona had a twin-carb cylinder head, unit-construction motor with larger valves and a racing camshaft, and hi-comp pistons to push power over 42 HP and the top speed to more than 110 MPH. The Daytona was a reliable and quick machine, and the 1970 model featured a fantastic purple and silver paint scheme, just right for the era. It remains the most desirable of the unit-construction 500cc Triumphs, as it’s the fastest and best-handling of them all. This 1970 Triumph T100R Daytona was restored to an exceptional standard by Dave Wedlake of Portland, Oregon, and it has been ridden zero miles since, making it an essentially brand-new machine. It was also featured in the Triumph Owners Club calendar for April 2018.

Daytona 1970 triumph

This 1970 Triumph Tiger Daytona, also known as the T100R, was named after a Triumph win in the Daytona 200 race. Many people though that this was a better bike than it’s bigger brother, as it had nearly all the power but a much lighter chassis which was easier to maneuver.

Triumph Tiger Daytona - 2

Cycle World called this bike a “Jekyll and Hyde”:

below 4,500rpm, the Daytona would work like “a strong 350”; but shifting instead at 6,000rpm, we found a whole new level of performance, and a top speed of 105mph.

Triumph Tiger Daytona - 3

For unknown reasons, the seller thinks this is the bigger brother Bonneville – though the Bonnies were 650cc engines. We’ll try not to get to upset about it. The seller says his bike is in good shape, and it starts on the first or second kick. The bike comes with tires with less than 100 miles on them, and a new battery. Bonus points for the right side shifter, which I have to admit looks weird next to the kickstarter. Old Triumphs always look good in all-black.
