Below are a series of pictures of a lovely 1907 Triumph motorcycle that is for sale in England.
This machine is now sold (December 2013) via these pages.
It is owned by a retired engineer well known for his excellent work on Veteran and Vintage engines and so is mechanically spot on.
I went to see it today and everything mechanical on it is very properly and nicely done.
It is a very nice bike that is ready to ride. Any bike that is 106 years old will have had a few bits and peices changed, though this bike seems very nice and original with perhaps just a couple of period updates.
The stamping on the engine tell us it was made on 22nd February 1907. It has a correct V5, Pioneer Certificate and lots of history/paperwork. I believe it is one of only 5 1907 Triumphs left.
It has a later carb than 1907, but that was a popular upgrade that makes it much easier to ride. The carb is around 1913/14. The tank may also be later, probably 1912 and again not an unusual update to get a larger tank.
Various shape handlebars have been fitted over the veteran period and the ones on this show that it was intended to be used. I find the handlebars on most veterans come back too far and get in the way of your knees and I think these bars are an ideal shape to make riding the bike more enjoyable.
If you are interested in buying this bike, then please email me and I will put you in contact with the owner. My email is email@example.com
