TRIUMPH Motorcycle Bearings

Triumph Motorcycles Company was founded in 1885 selling pedal cycles. In 1888 the company moved to Coventry and in 1902 they produced their first motor bicycle. Triumphs were supplied to despatch riders during WW1and they soon gained a reputation for quality and reliability. The term "Trusty Triumph" originated in this period.

In 1936 Triumph went into liquidation during the depression. The company was bought by the owner of Ariel Motors, Birmingham and The Triumph Engineering Company Ltd was formed.

Production continued until 1945 for the British army. At the end of the war the waiting lists for Triumphs grew longer and longer, with long waiting lists throughout the 1950's and 1960's.
