1966 Triumph T100C

Post Sale Update: This T100C sold for $6,200 after 101 bids on eBay in Gainesboro, Tennessee.

Depending on who you talk to, the ’66 T100C was also called a T100SC or even the “Jack Pine” special after success in the Jack Pine Enduro. Whatever you call it, it’s a sweet motorcycle. This one’s even sweeter in my eyes as it has “been mechanically restored with every effort to maintain originality” and the seller includes a lot of detail in the listing.

Triumphs 650cc twins were the choice of many desert racers, but the enduro guys preferred the smaller and lighter 500s like this machine. 1966 was the last year that Triumph offered West Coast and East Coast models – the East Coast T00C came with painted fenders, a small black headlight, side cover delete, and a ribbed gas tank logo.

This example (VIN: T100C H47970) is offered by the second owner – the sale includes the original Michigan title from when it was bought new as well as a current Tennessee title in the seller’s name. In 2017-2018, “every single component on this bike was removed, cleaned, and rebuilt.” The engine and transmission were rebuilt by Bill Riemenschneider at Super T Specialties, a new Amal Monobloc carb was installed (original included), and there’s work from wheel to wheel. The seller notes that it “always starts easily and runs smooth” and is “perfect for small single and two lane roads.”
