• CLASSIC MOTORCYCLES

    The motorcycle should have disappeared with the advent of the inexpensive automobile, because Henry Ford's Model T usurped the motorcycle's position as a primary form of utilitarian transportation, but a funny thing happened on the way to extinction: the motorcycle not only survived but thrived. Enough people were enamored of the thrill and beauty of the two-wheeled mechanical beast to ensure it would continue to exist indefinitely. And exist they have! Many of the motorcycles manufactured during the past century truly fit the description of "classic," and many consider these machines works of art.

    Written by noted motorcycle author Patrick Hahn, Classic Motorcycles presents the history of motorcycling as told through the most significant, iconic, classic motorcycles of all time, with both period photography and modern portrait photography. All the best domestic and international makes are represented here, from BMWs, Indians, and Triumphs to Vincents, Ducatis, and Harley-Davidsons: the most classic models. You'll drool over the 1933 Matchless Silver Hawk, and you'll want to tear out the page displaying the 1956 Triumph Thunderbird and frame it. Each motorcycle was shot in a studio setting using photographer Tom Loeser's light-painting technique. Period ads and relevant historic photos and documents are spread throughout the book to supplement the portraits of the bikes, evoking a sense of time and place. Prepare to be in awe of the undeniably classic motorcycles in this collection. It's the only motorcycle history you'll need.

    Originally formed as a bicycle company in 1885, in 1902 Triumph produced its first motorcycle, which was simply a bicycle fitted with a Belgian Minerva engine. From there, the company, in various iterations, went on to build some of the most iconic motorcycles of all time.

  • TRIUMPH ENTHUSIASTS SET

    Celebrate the legacy of Triumph with this brand-new set of two books, Ultimate Triumph Collection and The Complete Book of Classic and Modern Triumph Motorcycles 1937-Today.

    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. For most that would have been enough. For Bobby Sullivan, those first few bikes only served to whet his appetite. With a single-minded focus, Sullivan started to buy not just bikes, but the parts needed to restore those bikes. 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, 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.
