1967 Daytona T100R Super Sports

by Paul
(Pandora, Ohio)

This was the first year the 500cc bike sported twin carburetors. The 1967 "Daytona" was introduced to commemorated Triumph's 1966 victory at the Daytona 200 mile road race. Triumph was victorious at Daytona a 2nd year in 1967. The "1967" T100R still had a Tiger 100 emblem on the side cover, but was also called the Daytona Super Sports. The 1967 Daytona's were approximately 23-24 lbs. lighter than the 1967 Bonneville's, and had a two inch shorter wheelbase which facilitated very quick handling. It was also close to being a match for the Bonneville in the standing quarter mile posting a speed of 88 mph in 14.9 seconds.

I graduated from high school in 1967, and purchased a used 1967 Daytona in 1968. It was the only road bike I ever owned. I had the bike for around three years before selling it to support my interest in Bultaco dirt bikes. In June of 2012, I located and purchased another 1967 Daytona T100R. It has the "original" paint, and other than a set of new pipes it is basically a 46 year old un-restored example. I recently had the tank-badges restored, but have no plans for additional restoration for fear of hurting the bike's value.

To me, Triumph Motorcycles from the 1960's are what motorcycles should look like, and sound like. I am thrilled to own the very same model that I did when I was nineteen years old. I hope to take it to a few shows here in Ohio this coming summer, and would love to hear from other Triumph enthusiasts from the Buckeye sate.

Best Regards,
Paul
