Triumph Bantam Cub Links

Useful links for Bantam Cub and Super Cub owners

Below is a list of website links that I found useful and informative when I was restoring my Bantam Cub.

These are sources of general information and discussion. For details of suppliers go to the suppliers page.

The Tiger Cub Bible, by Mike Estall

The Tiger Cub Bible

The late Mike Estall wrote the definative book on the Triumph Tiger Cub.

The Tiger Cub Bible is essential reading for anyone considering a Cub restoration project.

Veloce Publishing Ltd. ISBN13: 9781904788096, ISBN10: 1904788092.

Tiger Cub and Terrier, by Steve Jackson

Steve Jackson runs a really usefull website containing a huge amount of information and resources for owners of Tiger Cubs, and their little brother the 150cc Triumph Terrier.

Steve works closely with the Triumph Owners' Motor Cycle Club.

Dating Certificate

Consolidated Parts List

Dating certificates provided some interesting information and can give details such as the date the bike left the factory and the original dealer they were shipped to.

They can also be very important if you are in the UK and have a Tiger Cub that is not on the DVLA computer. Before DVLA will register (or re-register) a vehicle they require documentary evidence of the vehicle's provenance. A dating certificate is usually required for this.

The late Mike Estall used to maintain an official Tiger Cub Register and provided dating certificates for all Tiger Cubs with valid frame numbers. His Consolidated Parts List & Index gave useful sizes and references not covered in the official Parts Books.

Since the sad passing of Mike in 2017, the Triumph Owners' Motor Cycle Club now offers a similar service.

The Triumph Forums

The Triumph Forum, as the name suggests is all about Triumphs from early Meriden classic to the latest Hinckley models. There are many knowledgable Tiger Cub owners who contribute and are happy to share their knowledge and experiences.

Triumph Rat dot Net Forums

Similar the the Triumph Forum above, this covers all things Triumph. Much of the chat is about modern machines, but there is still a significant membership of Cub owners willing to help fellow owners.
