England’s famous Triumph motorcycles came to the United States following World War II riding on the same crest of public interest that brought a fascination with British sports cars. But it was not until Marlon Brando rode onto the movie screen on a Triumph Thunderbird as the rebel Johnny in The Wild One that Triumph’s image was branded into the American motorcyclist’s mind. It was hard to forget Brando’s slim swagger as he and his gang of rough biker dudes climbed off their cycles to push nonconformity on a conservative small town.

The Triumph Vertical Twin
Triumph had made its name based on the great Edward Turner-designed vertical twin Engine: s that made their debut in the Speed Twin of 1938. The early Engine: s were mated to a separate gearbox, but, in 1957, Triumph updated its Engine: design, with a unit construction motor fitting the transmission into the same casing as the crankshaft. The result was a more reliable Engine: that helped further establish Triumph’s reputation.

The T100T and T100R
The Daytona model was launched in 1966 as a 500cc sports model fitted with twin carburetors for maximum breathing efficiency and more horsepower. Both the T100T and T100R Daytonas were available to the US market. They were named after the Daytona Beach Speedway where Triumph had scored many a race victory.
