Junior Triumph motorcycle

1914-1918 in Coventry

'Junior' Triumph, 2-stroke, 2.25 h.p. motorcycle, c. 1914-1918. These motorcycles were also affectionately known as the ‘Baby’ Triumph. They first started being produced in 1913 to satisfy the growing demand for economical lightweight motorcycles, and were so successful production continued until 1925. The later models were fitted with a clutch and kick-start, though models like this had neither and had to be started by sitting astride and ‘paddling’ off. These motorcycles also still carried the common Triumph feature of the front fork rocking about a single pivot.
