Among the dozens of books devoted to Triumph motorcycles and their history, no single title currently serves as an encyclopedia of the brand—a comprehensive source of Triumph production bikes, racers, prototypes, factories, key people, and achievements that built the legend. The Big Book of Triumph at last fills that vital white space for Triumph fans, restorers, collectors, and any enthusiast interested in Britain’s most famous and successful marque.

This is the first Triumph book to feature a model-by-model photographic guide to all Triumphs produced from 1903-2012. The author uses his deep connections within the global Triumph hobby, his extensive personal archive, and the superb work of photojournalist Timothy Remus, to present 110 years of singles, twins, triples, and scooters in this must-have resource.

In addition to the model-by-model guide, chapters will cover:

· the rare factory prototypes, many of which have surfaced only recently

· a listing of works race and competition machines

· an A-Z guide to the key Triumph designers, engineers, racers, and leadership

· an Experts’ Guide to the 10 Most Desirable & Collectible Triumphs

· a clear, easy-to-digest listing of Triumph records, milestones, and trivia

· and much more

Printed on high quality paper, this new book includes nearly 1000 photos. Not just images of the ever-popular Thunderbirds, Bonnevilles and TR6s from the 50s and 60s, but both the very early and sometimes very rare Triumphs built early in the last century, and also those built under the new management – the Hinckley Triumphs.

Never before has all this information been compiled and put between two covers to create an archive that makes all others obsolete. Collectors, students of all things Triumph, and anyone with an interest in motorcycle history, will want this new book published by Wolfgang Publications.
