Canadian Air Force – 1964 Triumph TRW

In England, Standard by Abhi1 Comment

The Triumph TRW was built for use by the British military in WWII – only problem was that the war had been won by the time the bike had actually been released in 1948. Still, between 15 and 16 thousand were built by the time production ended in 1964, but nearly all of them left the UK.

An evolution of the 5TW, the TRW was purchased by the Royal Air Force, and lots of Commonwealth countries, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and even Pakistan. It was never sold new to the public, and only 80 exist on the register of TRW’s at Burton Bike Bits. For all the information you would want on a TRW, check out this “Buyers Guide” from Sump Pumblishing.

This specific Triumph TRW is claimed to be highly original with just 449 miles on it, plus it comes with the panniers. It was apparently not put together until 1974, though you’ll have to ask the seller why that was because he/she doesn’t give much else in terms of information. Find it for sale here on Craigslist in Townsend, Massachusetts for $12,500.
