In 1939 Triumph's range included three side valve singles. These included the 3S model, which was soon to be involved in the war effort. The Triumph singles were based on the designs of Val Page and the 3S became the wartime 3SW. It is not known whether CUX 516 dates from the immediate pre-war period or during wartime. The registration suggests a possible date of 1944, but further research by the purchaser will undoubtedly pay dividends. CUX 516 was purchased by the deceased owner at an indeterminate date. It has had no use during the present ownership, and has been barn stored. In need of restoration, it is sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this lot.
