Triumph: The world’s longest continuous production motorcycle manufacturer
Here’s a 3 part video series showing the original build process at Triumph Motorcyces. Triumph started in 1902 and even though they went in to recivership in 1983 the company lived on making it the worlds longest running motorcycle manufacturer.
The videos walk you through exactly how the bikes were built in the days when men were men, bums were bums and Triumphs were hand built. The music to these vids is great. They must have hired the same guys who did all the classic disney cartoons.
Triumph Classic part 1: Building the frame, crankcase and pistons.
