By the outbreak of the Great War, Triumph’s reputation for quality and reliability was well established, At the start of the First World War in 1914 the British Government needed effective communications with front line troops and replaced messengers on horses with despatch riders on motorcycles. A number of models were tested for suitability and the Triumph Model H was selected. With the rear wheel driven by a belt, the Model H was fitted with a 499 cc air-cooled four-stroke single-cylinder engine. It was also the first Triumph not to be fitted with pedals, so was a true motorcycle
This Triumph on offer was restored around 20 years ago. Used and cared for ever since by the previous and current owner, the machine should be a good and usable pioneer machine with a Sturmey 3-speed hub and clutch. Running very well at the time of our visit, it is offered complete with a Pioneer certificate issued in 1989. This Model H is being offered with a file of paperwork, including handwritten notes and a letter on file.
