Description

Triumph’s progression in production was spectacular, from Minerva-engined assembly in 1902 to Britain’s leading maker by 1914, by which time its designs had been copied by BSA. In that unfortunate year, the ‘Model H’, a 550cc side-valve with a three-speed, Sturmey-Archer, belt-drive ‘box, became the famous ‘Trusty Triumph’, the mainstay motor-cycle for the British Army, with over 30,000 produced for war use and with such a reputation for excellence that it was still made into the 1920s, despite the quantities of WD-surplus machines on the market. Many ‘Model H’ Triumphs, incredibly, are still being ridden in distance events 100 years on.

     

This ‘barn find’ condition example looks to be reasonably complete and in structurally good condition but requires complete restoration, offered here ‘as seen’ at No Reserve. There are no documents with this lot.
