This book provides in-depth technical detail and historical background on the Triumph Trophy from its inception in 1949 through the fifties and sixties.
It includes the addition of the Sports Tiger models in 1967 and Tiger models in 1969 and provides the details on both model lines into the seventies with the Trophy line ending in 1974 and the Tiger models to the end of the line in 1983.
The book tracks company and model history in only four chapters in year-on-year in chronological order, making it easy to locate the details of model development for any model year in the range.
In addition, for the restorer and collector the Appendix includes detailed color charts, model year build totals, works registered Trophy models (for ISDT and one-day trials), and carburetor setting specifications.
The detail of the specifications for each model year go far beyond the usual engine displacement, number of gears in the tranny, dry weight and so on found in the typical model brochure, or even the typical aftermarket service manual for that matter. Woolridge provides details like cylinder barrel and tappet block material specs, oil pressure release valve pressure specs, as well as the more common dimensional parts data essential for assessing engine condition and complete tear-down and rebuild.
