If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

No. The one on my signature is a Model D which is 1913/14. The model D was a single speed with pedals and no clutch. Really just a bicycle with an engine bolted into the frame.
The Model H is the motorcycle that really made Triumph. Three spoeed gearbox, clutch and no pedals, a true motorcycle and as iconic in vintage circles as the Speed Twin or Bonneville. It was the worlds first mass production motorcycle with 30,000 built for war servuce and many tens of thousands more in the early 20's.

I posted it because ir is not the kind of Triumph that appears here very often and we should see more Coventry built machines more often. Triumph built bikes at Coventry for almost as long as Merriden and far longer than at Hinckley
