Quite simply glorious. None better. This machine has been restored to the highest standard and is ready for running in and campaigning. Delivery can be arranged anywhere in the world at cost.

Triumph introduced the four-valve Ricardo model in 1921. The first production models arrived in 1922, and although Rudge went on to make a success of their four-valve designs, Triumphs did not last into the 1930s, being dropped at the end of 1927 in favour of a new two-valve design. Developed and raced at Brooklands by Victor Horsman, Triumphs new 498cc two-valve engine debuted in the Type TT in 1927, replacing the four-valve Ricardo as the Coventry firms top-of-the-range sports roadster. A privately entered example ridden by Triumph agent Tommy Simister finished third in the Isle of Man Senior TT in 1927, and this stylish twin-port model remained a fixture of the Triumph range until 1931.
