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.

I really enjoyed this book. It is easy reading and gives the reader and comprehensive overview of Triumph's influence in the U.S. I am considering either a 98 Thunderbird or an older Bonneville. Great reading!!

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.
