Triumph Thunderbird

1963 Triumph Thunderbird 6 T 650. Unit building for the first year. It has the maximum treatment with the “bath.” Not popular in the United States.  The Triumph Thunderbird was that they were already making a 500cc (Triumph Speed Twin, Triumph Tiger & Triumph Trophy) bike in their 500cc line. The new 640 Thunderbird was fitted with the same basic motor castings and the same design. The look was marked by a few styling and color changes, but it was a victory otherwise!

Triumph Bonneville

The 1965 Triumph Bonneville was at its best portraying Triumph and the Bonneville, and was one of the fastest bikes on the road in 1965The first Triumph Bonneville was a 650 cc parallel motorcycle made by Triumph Engineering from 1959 to 1974. The first one was Norton Villiers Triumph. The Triumph Bonneville is a typical motorcycle that features a four-stroke parallel-twin engine and is made over three different manufacturing runs in three generations.

Triumph Speed Twin

Most of the early British bikes were single-cylinder designs with a few V-twins thrown in for sidecar service, from their earliest origins through the 1930s. Yet all of these systems have a problem with noise and a lot of it. When bikes increased in displacement and power output, and engine speed (RPM) started to rise, the vibes turned evil, affecting the life of the motor and comfort of the driver.

Triumph Tiger 80

The Triumph Tiger 80 is a British motorcycle that was first produced in 1937 by Triumph. There was also a Tiger 70 250cc, and a Tiger 90 500cc. Development of the Tiger ended with the start of World War II and never resumed after heavy German bombing completely destroyed the Triumph works at Priory Street in Coventry during The Blitz in 1940. Turner produced a new range of lightweight singles which were advertised as the Tiger 70, 80, and 90, with the model number reflecting the maximum speed and they, sold well. Business to break even in the first year and re-establish Triumph to make a decent profit the next. The company continued to become one of the most successful motorcycle companies in Britain.

Triumph Trophy

Long before the first Triumph Trophy was published in 1948, Triumph Motorcycles cut their teeth in the dirt, gleaning off-road experience designing and building British Army military motorcycles in World War 2. Thanks to the generous use of costly aluminum alloy, the 1940 Triumph 3TW 350 twins was designed to a War Ministry specification, it was lightweight at just 230 pounds. How many were constructed during the war is unknown but in the field, they were highly successful.

Triumph TR5 Trophy

The TR5 Trophy was a regular motorcycle produced between 1949 and 1958 by Triumph Engineering in the factory in Meriden. The original 1949 TR5 Trophy models used the aluminum cylinder barrels and heads produced for the War Department in WW2 from a generator engine Triumph had supplied. It was the first aluminum cylinder head/barrel of Triumph, and factory staff suggested during the war that the alloy heads were easily adapted with their higher cooling properties to a motorcycle.

Triumph Tiger Cub

The Triumph Tiger Cub was a British single-cylinder motorcycle manufactured by 200 ccs (12 cu in) in their Meriden plant. The 200 cc T 20 Tiger Cub designed by Edward Turner in November 1953 and introduced by Earls Court in November 1953 was shock news just before the 1952 show of other small-capacity motorcycles of the time, such as the two-stroke Villiers.

Triumph TR6

The original TR6 Trophy from 1956 was intended to be a street-legal scrambler, not an all-out street bike. That was Thunderbird territory (touring) & Tiger territory (sport). In reality, the TR6 was quickly dubbed the “Trophy-Bird,” as it was a cross between the off-road Trophy 500 & the 650cc T-bird in the eyes of the public. Most people who purchased a Triumph TR6, of course, didn’t strip it down and race it. The TR6 as a lean-looking street bike was perfectly appealing to everyone.


Triumph Trident

The Trident came with a “Shoebox” gas tank, massive side covers, and those ridiculous “Ray Gun” mufflers, as introduced in 1969. Sales, it goes without saying, have suffered for it. Many people purchased them like this and then quickly turned them into more conventional-looking Bonneville-style bodywork, so much so that it is unusual to find such an unmolested original.

Triumph Daytona 500

The Triumph Daytona is basically the T100C Trophy 500 twin, a high-performance variant. Packed with a new alloy cylinder head mounting two’ Bonneville-style ‘ Amal Monobloc carburetors, it had higher compression and hotter cams, too. The increased intake valve size, and noticed that intake and exhaust valves would “kiss” each other occasionally. And the angle of the valve was slightly narrowed to minimize this. The end result was a greater force and a rev will.

Triumph T140 TSX

The Triumph TSX was a British motorcycle that the factory had credited as being manufactured by Triumph Motorcycles America (TMA), the American arm of the factory, in 1981–1982. The TSX, unchanged from Triumph’s brochures, was to be included in the factory’s unrealized 1984 range as the TSX4 with a similarly styled TSX8 with the Triumph T140W TSS eight-valve engine alongside. To reflect the new designations, side panel badges added a’ 4′ or’ 8.’ The 8-valve TSS engine was originally designed by Wayne Moulton, who designed the TSX.

Although not fitted to the 1982–1983 production models, Dunlop tires were again seen on all U.S.-styled brochure versions of their ‘ Qualifier’ version this time, the lettering of the tires picked out in white again. Both the TSX4 and TSX8 retained the front and aft Avon tires, as before.

1973 Triumph X75 Hurricane

Having decided on a slightly different 3-cylinder engine from the Triumphs, BSA wanted to make an impact and give its dealers something interesting for a change, and something that Triumph couldn’t match. There was a great deal of internal competition than within the BSA Empire. They wanted to come up with what would be considered a’ halo’ model today, one that would draw customers into the showrooms and show the world that there was still a game for BSA.


Triumph Choppers

So, let’s look at our headline bike once again. It began life as a Bonneville 73 Victory, but now has a strong frame, super long front end springer, tiny front drum brake, sissy bar stepped sitting seat, z-balls and an exhaust stirred, along with tips on the “Fishtail” old school. This one has the charm of’ Old Age.’ Custom rigid frame with high riding Sportster tank; custom springer; drag bars; all designed around the Triumph Bonneville engine pre-unit. The sleek, old-style automotive copper oil tank & copper oil lines complete the old school look, so much so that the new front disk brake is barely seen.

Triumph Cafe Racer

This Triumph cafe racer has been designed in a limited number by LA Street master engineering, which spans the ancient legends of hot rodding with the “Moon Eyes” from Cal Tradition. These guys make a great bike. They had several different models on show, a street tracker, a flat tracker & this Cafe Racer, all with new Triumph Bonneville Engines. This bike is as powerful as it is beautiful with “Mule” custom frame, flow-optimized engine, high-compression CR pistons & Carillo rods, hot cams, Keihin carbs 39 mm flat slide & low-restriction exhaust.

Triumph Legend TTThe Triumph Legend TT is a British motorcycle that was produced from 1998 through 2001 by Triumph Motorcycles Ltd. The goal for the new Legend TT was affordability based on the three-cylinder liquid-cooled Triumph Thunderbird 900, so the designers lowered the initial cost by manufacturing a stripped-down hotrod version, with less chrome.  A satin-black powder-coated engine, a’ teardrop’ fuel tank, reverse cone megaphone silencers, and 17-inch spoke chrome rim wheels were included in the specification. Obsidian Black,” Cardinal Red’ and’ Imperial Green’ were the paint choices.
