THE BIKE SPECIALISTS, TRADING STANDARDS AWARD WINNERS. We are proud to offer for sale our stunning 1945 Triumph 500cc Speed Twin finished in the beautiful Amaranth red and chromium finish. Our British classic Speed Twin was registered in October of 1945 making it possibly one of the earliest know post war models still in existence! In wonderfully restored condition complete with the correct 1945 gallon capacity oil tank and with the paint scheme alone costing £1000 (carried out by Lewis Templeton's) this bike surely is one of the best examples currently available. The bike is showing just 2 owners from new, is supplied with the original 1945 vehicle owners registration book, numerous old tax discs dating as far back as 1953 and starts first kick with a super smooth running engine, a truly usable classic machine that would grace any collection and offer great investment potential. Triumph announced their first post war range of machines in 1945 with the Speed Twin heading the range. The bike benefited from the adoption of telescopic front forks but was otherwise much as the machines catalogued for the 1939 season. The Triumph model season resulted in very few 1945 season machines being produced before the introduction of the 1946 models on the line during the autumn of 1945. The ancillary instruments and switch gear were housed in the tank top with the speedometer being mounted on the top fork yolk establishing the general pattern for the machine over the next few years. Please don't miss the opportunity to purchase this stunning piece of british history. Feel free to call for more information or to place a small deposit to secure the bike. We offer full finance packages and can also organise shipping of this or any of our other motorcycles anywhere in the world.

What does it do for me?

Exterior Protection - All exterior paintwork is treated with a unique protective coating. This protective coating will enhance the paintwork shine and ensure maximum resistance to environmental hazards from bird lime to tree sap, even the severest winter conditions. The glossy water repellent coating is easier to keep clean and maintains a superbly glossy shine.

Upholstery Protection - Upholstery (fabrics and leather) and all carpeted areas are treated with a durable water resistant coating to seal out moisture and resist staining. Accidental spillages simply bead on the surface, whilst dust and sticky marks are easily removed.

Glass Protection - All external side and rear windows are treated with a long-term, optically clear, non-stick, easy to remove coating. As you drive the raindrops roll off to give greatly improved wet weather visibility and safety.

Peace of Mind - With the life shine system you will receive a fantastic lifetime warranty for any issues that may arise from the daily use of your car.
