The August issue of Classic Bike magazine celebrates 120 years of Triumph – one of the most famous British manufacturers of all time. Having launched their first motorcycle in 1902, the company went on to become a true icon, and Classic Bike acknowledges the history of the brand this month. The focus is on not only great bikes, but also the men who created them, rode them and raced them. The huge breadth of Triumph’s machines – from a 1927 factory Twin-Valve racer found in a loft, to a couple of TR6s that used to race in the deserts of California, via a road test of a 1969 ‘best of the best’ model Bonneville – is fully reflected. This month’s magazine is also populated by legendary Triumph characters, from pivotal designers and engineers such as Edward Turner and Doug Hele to glamourous and cool riders/racers like Steve McQueen and Gene Romero, as well as gritty and down-to-earth limit-pushers of the likes of Percy Tait and Gary Nixon. With all CB’s regular features also onboard, you can’t miss August’s Classic Bike – it’s a Triumph!
