Archibald also achieved his sole North West 200 success in 2003 and was victorious in the Superbike class at the Ulster Grand Prix, where he won six races on the Dundrod circuit.
The following year, Archibald returned to the TT and won the prestigious Senior event for a second time.
The quietly spoken County Antrim man also has the honour of being the last rider ever to defeat current TT king John McGuinness in a man-to-man duel in the Superbike class in the 2003 Senior.
Neill added: “He's obviously a very determined, self-driven individual. He doesn't share his feelings with very many people and sometimes it's hard to know what he's thinking, but what he did will be something that I'll be most impressed with when we look back on our racing career,” added Neill.
“We've had lots of success at the TT which is great, but to see Adrian achieve those results that particular year was super-impressive.
“It was one of those rare times when even some of our rivals were probably happy to see us win.
“He's a very big part of TAS Racing and TAS Suzuki history and is in the history books now and will always remain that way.”
Archibald also racked up over 100 victories at the national road race meetings in Ireland during his 21-year career.
