Triumph Motorcycles Old Factory Film

Triumphs have a lot of soul…Although this old black & white movie would be better without a quite “cheesy” intro, watch how machining and assembly was done at the old Triumph factory (part 1 of 3).

    Cyril,

    This video is a really great tetimony to the Triumph history. I loved viewing it.. Thank you.

    I do; however, have one question. Will you be posting parts 2 and 3? I would love to see them if you have them.

    P.S. I agree that the cheesy intro could have been skipped.

    @Jacob Hessel, if you double click on the vid you find links to the rest.

    I like the cheezy intro, very Pathé news and fitting to 1954 when it was filmed.

    WOW… back in the day this was like Rolls Royce, hand made in most every way ! Love those center stands! Did you see the guys have a white shirt and tie on with an over coat to keep the dirt off of him. Did you see the woman with the high heel shoes on… Holy cow, her feet must have been killing… LOL Lastly, did you see the engine DYNO with the hot pipes up in that guys face and no protection anywhere around the engine / DYNO… LOL Get killed testing an engine or melt your face off….. LOL AWESOME VIDEO ! ! !
