A landmark machine in the development of the motorcycle in Britain, Triumph's Model P debuted at the 1924 Motor Cycle Show. A no-frills sidevalve-engined model, the newcomer was priced at £42 17s 6d, at which level it undercut every other 500cc machine then on sale in the UK. Production was soon running at an astonishing 1,000 machines per week and the Model P's outstanding success undoubtedly hastened the demise of many a minor manufacturer. Production continued until the decade's end, by which time the Model P had spawned a plethora of derivatives - Models N, Q and QA among them - and lost penny-pinching features such as guide-less valves and the bicycle-type front brake. Dating from the end of the 'flat tank' era, this Model N will make a very satisfactory mount for the rider who enjoys Vintage-style motorcycling while appreciating the reliability and technical competence for which the Triumph factory was known. Restored circa 2010, the machine is described as in generally good condition and offered with instruction book, VMCC dating certificate, recently expired MoT (November 2012) and Swansea V5C registration document. An ideal mount for the 2014 Banbury Run.
