Triumph motorcycle, 1904

Made:
1904 in Coventry

Triumph motor cycle, built two years after the first Triumph motorcycle was produced, with a 2.5 hp engine probably made by JAP or Fafnir, and the rest of the vehicle of Triumph design, Coventry, West Midlands, England, 1904

The Triumph Engineering Co. Ltd (formally known as the Triumph Cycle Co. Ltd and before that the New Triumph Co. Ltd), was started in 1887 by S. Bettman. The company initially started by selling bicycles and motor bicycles, but in 1902 Bettman started to develop the company into a manufacturer and by 1905 the first motor bicycle completely designed and made by Triumph was made. This motorcycle is an example of that intermediate period with a 2.5 hp engine probably made by JAP or Fafnir, and the rest of the vehicle of Triumph design.
