1982 Triumph T140W TSS, 744 cc. Registration number VNU 295Y. Frame number KEA 33812. Engine number KEA 33812.
The T140W TSS was the last motorcycle model Triumph produced at their Meriden factory. Designed to appeal to the US market, the TSS had an eight valve Weslake Engineering cylinder head developed by Triumph’s Brian Jones from a 1978/ 9 design originally commissioned from Nourish Racing of Rutland following 1960s designs for the 650cc twins by the famed Rickman Brothers. Launched in 1982, at a cost of £2, 399 with an electric starter as standard, the all-new top end of the engine featured Cooper rings sealing the 8-valve cylinder head to the barrel.

American Morris alloy wheels were an option with dual Automotive Products Lockheed disc brakes upfront as standard. The fins of the black painted engine were polished although, like the Triumph TR65 Thunderbird, many alloy cycle parts that had in the past been bright-polished or chromed were now painted satin black. Mudguards were stainless steel as were the Italian Radaelli rims for the wire-spoked wheel option. The high specification air-oil ‘Strada’ rear suspension units were supplied by Italian firm Marzocchi. With only 438 units believed to constitute the entire production run, survivors are becoming increasingly rare.

At the time Triumph brochures stated “The Triumph TSS for 1983 has many new features, as you would expect all are in keeping with the finest British motorcycle tradition bearing witness to Triumph’s long and glorious lineage. The heart of the TSS is Triumph’s very latest performance 750cc 8-valve engine, now installed in the patented “Enforcer Frame” developed in conjunction with British Police Forces. This unique hand-built high performance motorcycle, with road handling to match, offers a combination which would not be complete were it not for the very special “lean machine” styling introduced for 1983. To ensure that you are at one with your TSS from the moment you take delivery, Triumph have revised the riding position, foot rests and foot controls are now more “rear set” and as such are in keeping with this truly magnificent Super Sports motorcycle.
