The pioneers 1898-1929
The British motorcycle industry led the world in the opening years of the twentieth century and the internal combustion engine was greatly assisting two-wheeled pedal power. Just how strong this industry was in those days is emphasised by the fact that motorcycles from over fifty manufactures feature on this disc.
The vintage years 1930-1949
From 1930 onwards the British motorcycle industry enjoyed tremendous success. BSA, Norton, AJS, Triumph, Matchless, Vincent and Velocette strengthened and consolidated their reputation. After WWII AJS and Velocette won the first two World Championship series ever staged and BSA and Triumph led the world in sales.
The post war classics 1950-2000
Throughout the 1950s and into the mid-1960s, the Italian racers were getting the better of British bikes on the track but British still led where it counted – at the cash registers!
This was the era of classics such as the BSA Gold Star, Triumph Bonneville, Vincent Black Shadow, Ariel Square Four and Velocette Venom. Here the machines from these golden years, those which accompanied the downfall of the industry and the latest bikes from the re-born Triumph brand feature.
