Arrival at the store of a second 1939 Triumph Speed Twin.
A fully restored machine, which follows the 1938 model we sold last month, substantially in the same state.
Two complete repairs, carried out in parallel and in conformity with the origin.
The previous one remained on sale less than a week, because today it must be said, this motorcycle is particularly rare, even on the other side of the Channel.
And enthusiasts are not mistaken.
For the footnotes of history (which you surely know …):
At the time, when Edward Turner arrived at Triumph, he first cleaned up the staff, dusted the range, made motorcycles more attractive, advertised, and began thinking about a new machine, a Queen of beauty, as powerful as effective.
He locked himself in his office for a few weeks, and when he came out, he had under his arm the design of a new 500cc twin as narrow as a mono, which was perfectly fit in a T90 frame.
The Speed Twin was born, and it was a colossal success at the London show in 1937.
It will be for 30 years the archetype of the British twin, the one that everyone tried to copy.
