STOP! Don’t buy a Triumph Trophy or Tiger without first buying this book!
Having this book in your pocket is just like having a real marque expert by your side. Benefit from the author’s years of Triumph ownership, learn how to spot a bad bike quickly, and how to assess a promising bike like a professional. Get the right bike at the right price!


There are many books about Triumph, but most of them concentrate on the glamorous twin-carburettor Bonneville and three-cylinder Trident. Alongside these headline grabbing bikes, Triumph built a whole series of single-carb machines that had all the style of their twin-carb cousins, but were not much slower, delivered better fuel consumption, and were easier to live with.
Unlike the many books about Triumph’s history, this one is a straightforward, practical guide to buying a Trophy or Tiger secondhand. In the Veloce Essential Buyer’s Guide format, it delves into what these bikes are like to live with, and the values, advantages, and disadvantages of different models. Plus, of course, what to look for when buying one – including engine, transmission, frame, brakes, suspension, paint, chrome, and more.

Independent Reviews

Contains some very sound advice on what to look for when buying a bike, and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that await the enthusiastic but inexperienced buyer.
British Motorcycle Charitable Trust

A straightforward, practical guide to buying a Trophy or Tiger secondhand.
Triumph World

Covers all the things you seriously need to consider before purchasing a pre-90's Triumph and for that alone, is well worth the purchase cost.

This little book is so packed with information and so readable that nobody will want to miss it.
