In 1952 the idea of a single cylinder model, albeit a lightweight one, was resurrected by Triumph when the 150cc Terrier was introduced. In 1954 it was joined by an enlarged 197cc version christened the Tiger Cub. Both models were aimed at younger riders in the hope that, captured early, they would move on to the larger twins in due course. CCM 742C was purchased by the deceased owner at an indeterminate date. A 'matching numbers' example with the later 'square' cylinder barrel and head, it has had no use during the present ownership and, having been barn stored, will require re-commissioning. Accompanying documentation comprises an original continuationVE60 log book dating from 1970.
