Although Edward Turner’s Triumph Speed Twin caused a sensation when it appeared at the 1937 Motorcycle Show, few of its admirers can have guessed how influential the design would prove to be. It established a formula that would be adopted by all of Britain’s major motorcycle manufacturers in the succeeding decade. Performance proved exemplary for a road-going 500, better than 100mph being attainable under favourable conditions. In good overall condition, this Speed Twin is offered for sale in running condition with lots of related books and information, in addition to a V5c.
