Here you can enjoy...

The Pioneers 1898-1929

The British motorcycle industry led the world in the opening years of the 20th century and the internal combustion engine was greatly assisting two-wheeled pedal power. Just how strong this industry was in those days is emphasised by the fact that motorcycles from over 50 manufacturers feature on this disc.

The Vintage Years 1930-1949

From 1930 onwards the British motorcycle industry enjoyed tremendous success. BSA, Norton, AJS, Triumph, Matchless, Vincent and Velocette strengthened and consolidated their reputations. After the Second World War, AJS and Velocette won the first two World Championship series ever staged and BSA and Triumph led the world in sales.

Enjoy your own personal showroom of two-wheeled nostalgia with the A-Z of British Motorcycles!

The Post War Classics 1950-2000

Throughout the 1950s and into the mid-1960s, the Italian racers were getting the better of British bikes on the track but Britain still led where it counted - at the cash registers! This was the era of classics such as the BSA Gold Star, Triumph Bonneville, Vincent Black Shadow, Ariel Square Four and Velocette Venom. Featured here are the machines from these golden years, those which accompanied the downfall of the industry and the latest bikes from the re-born Triumph brand.

Special thanks to the National Motorcycle Museum, Bickenhill, Birmingham where all these machines were filmed.
