    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.[/QUOTE]

    Wasn't the T22 a tank? :)

    I've heard the term used about one or two Triumphs though...

    Strangely, yes.

    It never reached production, though, the T-23 being chosen for its
    simplicity and cheapness.

    The T-23 still wasn't a success, however, and the light reconnaissance
    role was filled by Vickers Carden-Loyd tankettes imported from

    The Twenty One is the same as a 3TA I know because I ride one and have done
    so for thirty years, without it ever missing a beat or leaking any oil.
    It was one of the smoothest engines Triumph ever built although grosly under
    powered, but cost next to nothing to insure, tax exempt, and returns 75 the
    the gallon.
