1902
First Triumph motorcycle is produced, designed by Schulte, using single-cylinder 2.25 (1.75?) bhp Belgian Minerva engine with automatic inlet valve and battery/coil ignition, fitted onto a bicycle frame (clipped to the downtube). Schulte also experimented with both Fafnir and engines.
Even though Triumph started as a company in 1883 (1886 as Triumph), this is the first year of motorcycle manufacturing for Triumph is the recognized established date of Triumph motorcycles. In 2002, Triumph celebrated its 100th anniversary of continuous production of motorcycles.

dude... do your homework. they made bicycles and sewing machines. they didn't make a "motor" until 1902. that is when they fit that motor into a bicycle frame and made motorcycle #1.

That one is kinda ruff for the price. You can find spotless S1's for $3-4K all
day long but you may have to travel for them.

Not so much worried about the motor in particular as the bike as a whole, what to look for, what needs to be done if it hasn't, weak areas, strong points, etc.

They are kinda children (which is why I think I want one sooo bad).
Harley guys don't like them because they are sports bikes, sport bike guys don't like them because they are Harleys. For me, that is perfect!

Hey texas94fs do you work on 36 in rosenberg

For the person that started the thread, most people that own buells work on them there selves. The best thing to get when you buy one is a shop manual for that model they are pretty easy to work on, and any info youcan find or problems that you need questions on just go to a buell forum ( hope thats ok to put down) any other questions just pm me

I do all my own work... Just looking for a brain to pick that knows their tube Buells.

I know about bad weather bikers but I'd rather pay someone who know what they are talking about then get a ton of "free" advise on a BBS.
