1965 Triumph Tiger 90 350


  • Perfect lightweight bike for beginner riders
  • Fantastic looking T90
  • Easy to start and runs well

The Appeal

The Triumph Tiger 90 was a essentially a redesign of the 3TA aimed at a younger market in search of a sporty model. Indeed, the lighter bike captured the imagination of Triumph’s new client base and remained in production for a number of years after its forefather ceased its run. 

In fact, with a smaller 350cc engine and lightweight design, it makes for the perfect easy ride for both beginners and more senior bikers. 

This particular model presents in great shape with its bikini fairing, commendable blue paint and bright chrome. Whilst documentation is reportedly not present, it’s clear this bike has been well cared for throughout its life, still running well to this day, certainly thanks to a full overhaul just last year.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you\'re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
