The Triumph Model P brought the English firm into the world of mass production – and the company needed it because they were making 1,000 per week to keep up with demand, even in an economic downturn. Much of the bike’s success came from the price: Triumph was able to sell this bike for 42 pounds, making it the cheapest 500cc bike available in England.
The Model P was an evolution of the Model H (which became the SD, or Spring Drive). I say evolution but the P was a base model where Triumph looked to cut costs. For more information on this very successful classic Triumph, check out this profile from Real Classic.
