1977 Triumph Tiger TR7RV 750


  • Restored by Miller Motorcycles
  • Very well presented
  • Original details 


The Triumph TR7RV Tiger 750 is a remarkable motorcycle that embodies the classic style and heritage of the Triumph brand. This lively and tractable bike is designed to offer exceptional handling abilities that have been honed from numerous production race victories, making it a top choice for riders who value both performance and style. It’s a relaxing bike to ride, quite happy ambling along, soaking up the road for miles with minimum effort from the rider. 

This example has been with the vendor since the late 1980s and was restored with new parts over several years by Miller Motorcycles, Hastings, and since the restoration, just 2,377 miles have been covered. The Triumph has been in dry storage for several years, and with some light recommissioning, it will be ready to take to the roads once again.

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.
