This web page is all about a veteran motorcycle - a 1914 Triumph motorcycle, a 4hp 550cc motorcycle. It does not have a clutch or any gears and has no electric or kick starter as it was made in 1914. The 1914 Triumph Motorcycle was probably the most relaible bike available in its day.
I have created a web page about my 1914 Triumph see 1914 Triumph
Below is a copy of the 1914 Triumph Motors Repairs and Parts Catalogue
