Ultimate Triumph Collection presents nearly 80 perfect Triumphs, from early singles to an immaculate Speed Twin, from an iconic 1953 Blackbird to a pair of 1970 Bonnevilles, all belonging to one man.
What started as a restoration project on an old motorcycle 20 years ago grew into a small collection of nice Triumphs. For most men that would have been enough. For Bobby Sullivan, those first few bikes only served to whet his appetite. With a single-minded focus, Bobby started to buy not just bikes, but the parts needed to restore those bikes. Thus the collection grew, from 10 bikes to 15, and from 15 to 50. As it grew in size, it also grew in quality and depth. First it was Bonnevilles and TR6s. Next came the hard-to-find TT and C models. Twenty some years after restoring that first Triumph, Bobby Sullivan found himself the proud owner of more than 100 Triumphs - and nearly 80 of those perfect restorations are presented here.
The meat of this book is the photos of those very bikes, presented one bike per page, each with a short caption. Photos need context; collections aren't built in a vacuum. Chapters one and two provide a history of both the collection and the man who built it. Most collections contain a few gems, and those bright diamonds fill the final chapter: The T110 with Swallow side car, the ultra rare 350cc 3H, the '38 Speed Twin, and the new first-year Bonneville.
Ultimate Triumph Collection is an inside look at one man's obsession - one man's successful quest to assemble and own the world's best personal collection of the world's most beautiful motorcycles.

This is the story of the beginning of what has become America's No. 1 dirt sport, when Motocross was ''imported'' into America, first as the ''Inter-Am'' series in 1968-'69, then as the ''Trans-Am'' series in 1970. During this era, freelance writer and photographer Robert Schleicher traveled to what would become the most famous tracks in America to cover the new-to-America Motocross races. Usually with only a snow fence separating him from the competitors, Schleicher was able to dramatically capture the intense battles between the best European riders (Torsten Hallman, Roger DeCoster and others) and the brash new Americans like Gary Bailey, Dick Mann, Jim Pomeroy and more. Vintage motocross racing grows in popularity every year, and this rare look into the formative years of the sport will stoke the avid to newbie fan with almost 100 color and more than 100 black-and-white classic racing images. The bikes, the riders, the tracks ... they are all here, like you've never seen before.
