1922 Triumph

This 1922 Triumph motorcycle was a very well constructed and durable design, proven in the battlefields of World War I.

The unique feature of this bike is the four-valve cylinder head designed by British engineer, Harry Ricardo. Although a simple machine, the “Riccy,” as proud owners would refer to their machines, was a popular and reliable early motorcycle.
