Precious Metal, Meriden Stylee

Produced in 1957 only as a tuning part for dealers in the US, this is a Tiger 100 Delta head.
By all accounts as rare as the proverbial rockin' horse shit, it has recently found it's way here. 

The standard parallel inlet tracts are still part of the casting but never machined out, instead extra meat has been added to the side of the head to allow for the splayed ports similar to the Bonnie set up.

This has got to be a keeper, just got to find the rest of the parts to create a bike worthy of putting it on.
