1958 Triumph 21 aka The 3TA

The neat little unit construction Triumph engine makes the scene in late 1957 and is advertised in 1958 as the Triumph 21. AKA the 3TA, the 500cc version would arrive in 1959. Also new is the dreaded bath tub enclosure that would last until the early 1960's. Most of them were removed from the motorcycle and ended up in the land fill.


  1. It`s kind of ironic that it`s the unloved bodywork that makes those so affordable now . Original steel bodywork is rare and repros are expensive , hence there`s a lot of scruffy bikes out there for cheap.
