A brief history of Triumph

Triumph, formerly a bicycle manufacturer, bought a site in Coventry and started motorcycle manufacturing in 1902 - their first attempt was a bicycle fitted with a Belgium Minerva engine.

For the first few years, the company based its designs on other manufacturers - but by 1904 Triumph began building its own motorcycle designs.

In 1915 Triumph was chosen to supply the type H 'trusty' motorcycle for Allied military service. Of the 57,000 motorcycles manufactured during WW1, 30,000 of the air cooled single cylinder bikes saw active service.

The Triumph brand had an amazing publicity boost following the release of the 1953 film, 'The Wild One', starring Marlon Brando, who rode a 1950 Thunderbird 6T.

The 1963 film 'The Great Escape' saw Steve McQueen doing a famous 65ft jump on a Triumph motorbike; except it wasn't him, the American Triumph dealer Bud Ekins did it - in one take!

Did you know - sadly, Triumph went into receivership in 1983 after struggling to compete with Japanese motorbike manufactures. However, the name and manufacturing rights were bought the following year and Triumph went back into motorcycle production, becoming Britain's largest motorcycle manufacturer.

We know a lot about other motorbike brands too...
