1964 MK3 Triumph TRW 500 cc Twin Ex British Military

The Triumph TRW was introduced in 1948 and was only supplied to the Military, Army (few), RAF (mainly), Navy, Forestry Commission, etc. The bulk were exported to Commonwealth countries such as Canada, Australia and South Africa. Sources say up to 16,000 were produced but survivors around the world are now in the hundreds and as little as 50 odd of these are in the UK. Conceived in the late 1930s by "Edward Turner" and "Burt Hopwood" but never making into production in time for WWII. Triumph worked hard to secure contracts with the government for the TRW 500 and succeeded. Some examples remained in service as late as 1981! Never offered to the general population direct, from main agents or factory, but many TRW's were released as surplus and found welcome homes in "Civvy Street". Of its time it was a very good bike being quite a civilized mount. The popularity of military motorcycles goes from strength to strength and I am pleased to offer this excellent and very original Triumph TRW 500 SV. Showing a mileage of 5,317 which I believe may be correct. Fueled by the original Solex carburetor, this 500cc SV Twin sounds great once fired into life. A ride up the road confirms the clutch to work well and the gearbox is smooth. We are going to service the TRW prior to sale and we can arrange delivery. Accompanying the Triumph TRW are a number of show awards.
