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. The first batch manufactured was not without its faults, but once these had been sorted the Model P was a runaway success. Output from Triumph's Priory Street works was soon running at an astonishing 1,000 machines per week, and the Model P's arrival 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 number of derivatives – models N, Q and QA - and lost penny-pinching features such as its guide-less valves and bicycle-type front brake.

Believed to be an older restoration, this Triumph Model P comes with a detached sidecar, chassis, and wheel: all in need of renovation. There is no registration document with this Lot; however, the registration mark is on the HPI database. Accordingly, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to the machine's registration status prior to bidding. Sold strictly as viewed.
