Now here’s a rare video nugget. You would never see this much details from a motorcycle factory today. This is a 30 min. infomercial, I think we would call it now, from Triumph made back in the late fifties. Starts off with a hobo finding some note with a technical illustration on the side of the road, which he hands over to a jolly old motorcycle riding chap passing by. Jolly motorcycle chap gives the hobo a lift on his way to the Triumph factory, and thats where an amazing walk through of the Triumph factory at the time begins. That’s real old school.
