Does it run? What is the performance of such a bike? Some more detailed pictures would be great to see. Also, is the headlight electric or a flame?

It will be acetylene

you can see the gas generator, and the chimney on the lamp

given the brakes on those things, I'd guess the description of performance is "enough"!

Will try to answer a few questions:

Photos. The only other one I have is


and the bike is now packed away for the winter.

Top Speed Probably around 50 mph but as Dave M points out you would need to be brave as the brakes, especially the front, are feeble. A more practicle speed is around 35 mph.

Does it run Most definitely and is likely to be very reliable. The Triumoh Model H was christened the "Trusty Triumph" by the British Dispatch Riders in the First World War.

Lights Yes, Acetylene. Told it give a brilliant white light but needs a 2hr clean after use as the reside solidifies and corrodes unless removed.

50 mph is pretty impressive especially given the feeble brake. Does not even seem to be one on the front

It is a beauty and a wonderful piece of history to be sure. I am confident that it will be well cared for and preserved for future generations.

I look forward to more pictures in the spring time.

Thanks,
Henry
