5.0 out of 5 stars A Bonnie book ! 7 May 2006
Format:Paperback
Love Triumphs ? Then you simply MUST have this book !

I'd go so far as to reccommend it to any fan of British bikes as it covers the glory years and slow decline of the most charismatic (sorry, Harley owners) marque, motorcycling has seen.

Of special interest is a section on Hollywood stars and their bikes: photos of Steve McQueen and his Triumph Trophy both inspecting it at the Meriden factory and stunt riding it on The Great Escape set as well as Marlon Brando and his T-Bird in The Wild One, info on countless other stars (James Dean, Richard Gere, Bob Dylan, Robert Taylor, Lee Marvin, to name a few)confirm Triumphs iconic status.

Well illustrated and well written offering a unique American perspective on an English company whose bikes became an American icon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A literary Triumph! 14 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Lindsay Brooke has written the best book I've ever read on the passion, the guts and the glory that was the Triumph story. Seamless weaving anecdote and accolade, he has produced a masterwork. Sitting in bed well after midnight, papercuts covering my fingers, lips chapped from reading, I simply couldn't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding the Triumph motorcycle in history. 10 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read just about every book the covers the history and detail of Triumph motorcycles, and this book is the best I have seen. When you consider the unique marketing of the US distributors and the American concept of what a great motorcycle should be this is a must read for anyone working on a Triumph in the US. Detailed, colorful, and well written, with plenty of reference photos it is the guide for the restorer or anyone seeking to understand the the role Triumph played in making this a nation of motorcycle riders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Triumph in America - A comprehensive history 13 Jan 2008
By D.G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought my first copy of this book while restoring a 1967 Bonneville T120R back in 1994. What first attracted me to it was the front cover of the 67 T120TT - the very same year and colors of the bike I was going thru, (except for being the TT version).

Having owned 7 Bonnevilles and Tiger 110's over the decades, including three pre-units and two duplex frame bikes and been a Triumph junkie since 1968, this book still taught me things I never knew about Triumph and especially the invaluable influence of Johnson Motors that contributed so much to the success of the bikes.

Strongly recommended if you want to get your history right on this most famous era of Triumph.
