1918 Triumph 550cc Model H Project
Registration no. FL 3267
Frame no. 284680
Engine no. 72814L
With only two owners in the last 30 years (according to the vendor and the previous owner), this 1918 Model H Triumph is presented in original and un-restored condition and is believed to have spent most of its life in the low lying Cambridgeshire fenland area. The 'renovated' transfers on the wonderfully patinated tank indicate that it was reconditioned at the Triumph works. It is quite likely that this machine was originally fitted with a hub gear, which may well have been replaced in the course of the factory renovation by the far more robust Sturmey Archer three-speed gearbox currently fitted. This would have brought the machine bang up to date.

Acquired over 30 years ago by the previous owner, the Triumph was fitted with a new primary chaincase after purchase, this being all that was done to it. The original Peterborough registration ('FL 3267') was reallocated, facilitated by the 1930 tax disc, which is included in the sale. The current vendor had the wheels re-spoked and the machine taxed in the hope of spurring on the rebuild's completion. Sadly, this was not to be; thus he fared no better than the previous owner! Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with the aforementioned 1930 tax disc and a V5C registration document. No reserve.
