Motorcycle

Made:
1907 in Coventry

3.5 hp Triumph motorcycle, 1907; an improved version of the 1905 3hp Triumph, the first wholly in-house designed and manufactured Triumph motorcycle. This design helped increase the popularity of motorcycling at a time when the market was at a slump due to the unreliability of the machines. The Triumph 1907 had a newly designed light frame with Triumph patented spring forks, a jet carburettor with magneto ignition, and a ball bearing engine. The motorcycle also claimed to have the most comfortable ride compared to other motorcycles. Due to these combined features of increased dependability and comfort the motorcycle had been transformed into a form of reliable transport.
