1963 Triumph Tiger 100

Apparently I met Mike DaPron at Donut Derelict's a few months back and gave him a VintageBikeOC card. Well I'm glad I did, and it looks like it paid off...

Congratulations to Mike DaPron of Los Alamitos for winning Bike of the Month with his very clean 1963 Triumph Tiger 100.

Mike's bike was definitely a crowd favorite. The vote wasn't even close and we had a record turnout today.

Mike has owned the Tiger 100 for about 10 years. The paint was done when he got it, but the bike was in parts. The previous owner said the engine ran, but it didn't. Robby Berg of Bullhead City, AZ rebuilt the engine. Mike says the bike is fairly stock except for the paint color and some added chrome.

The Triumph is just one of ten bikes Mike owns, mostly British. Maybe he'll bring another winner next time.

Check out all the pictures in the March Gallery. Thank you Mike for coming to the meet today and bringing this very cool bike.
