Edward Turner : The Man Behind the Motorcycles Paperback
by Jeff Clew
Reprinted after a long absence! For the first time, the life of Edward Turner, one of Britain's most talented motorcycle designers, is revealed!
Although seen by many as an irascible man who ran a very tight ship, it is an inescapable fact that Triumph was a highly profitable, industry pushing company.
Turner's hugely successful sales campaign after World War 2 stunned American manufacturers, and had long-lasting repercussions on their own home market.No one can deny the impact his Ariel Square Four made at the annual Motor Cycle Show in 1931, his superbly-styled single cylinder Tiger models in 1936, and his revolutionary Speed Twin that dominated the Show in 1937.
Even more was to follow with his post-war Thunderbird and Bonneville twins.
