    Can any one out there tell me if Triumph ever made military motorcycle
    called the 'T 22' please.

    I've had a look through my books and can't find a reference.

  4. Don't think so,
    The only war time Triumphs were Model H, 1914/18
    And TRW 1939/45
    This is from memory which is not *That* good at times ;-(

    But military doesn't have to mean wartime. Tnnn models are post war aren't
    they? I've heard of T10, T20, T90, T100, and T120... can't find anything
    about a T22 though.

  6. A typically badly phrased reply from me;-( which should have ended with:.
    These were the only military Triumphs that I remember,
    I could be completely Barking on this
    but I thought the T22 was the model designation of a Scooter.

    the bantam engine and the Tigress a 250cc. T22 would seem to be a sensible
    model number for a Triumph 250 model , so that may well be it.

    T10 was the Tina. The Tigress was TS1 or TW2. Is that all the scooters
    accounted for?

    T20 is Tiger Cub, T100 and T120 ate [1] Tigers and T120 is the Bonneville.
    I can't remember what a T90 was but I hink there was one. I s'pose that
    leaves T22 being a figment of a deranged imagination...

    If the OP could give us a date to work with - to the nearest decade ought to
    be near enough - it might be easier to work out what it is.

    [1] that should, of course, have been "are"... but it was too good a typo to
    take out.

    T90 was a sporty(sic) 350. T21 was a single-carb 350 slug with a
    bathtub rear enclosure.

    T22 is the model number for the new 2.3 litre Triumph Rocket III, as I
    understand it.

    That'll be because of the power loss through the cat I presume?

    Shagging pets will always slow you down.

    You going to show up on the 25th, btw?

    Might be safer than petting Shags, but I wouldn't want to try either.
    Stafford?

    Got a horrible feeling that w/e's booked for a family (or UKIP) do.
    Can't see the diary at the moment. Will check.

    Regards,

    Statto&Jackie, Steve, Moi&fambly etc, restaurant in Brizzle. Can you
    get a pass for Satdy evening, to fraternise with dubious characters?

    Oops! BIG mistake narrowly avoided - it's HER birthday. I suspect
    candles and only two attendees are necessary that evening! I plead
    confusion (as well as stupidity), as I have sister, wife and two
    daughters' birthdays all within a month of each other.

    It would be excellent to meet up though - lets try for something in
    early Nov. Would that be practical?

    Regards,

    Simonm.

    ....evening tragically spoilt by the rowdy bikers on the next table ;o)
    Should be - I'll email you when I have a chance to sort my diary out.

    Wasn't that the Model Twenty-One, which was actually the 3TA? I may be
    wrong, but I don't recall a T21. The 350s and 500s then were T90s/3TAs
    and T100s/5TAs.

    There was a Val Page designed Triumph twin which was to go into
    production for the military, but before that could happen the Coventry
    factory was destroyed in the Blitz. Unfamiliar with the concept of
    off-site backup as they were in them days, all the engineering
    drawings for it were lost and it never went into production. Could
    that have been the elusive T22?

    IIRC, the Tina was 100cc, the Tigress came in two variants, a 175 and
    a 250. And I'd rather like one...
