Triumph Production Testers : Tales from the Meriden Factory - Front Cover

Front Cover

Front Cover


From the 1950s through to the 1970s, Hughie Hancox worked at the Triumph Meriden factory in various capacities a fitter, a member of the famous Royal Corps of Signals Motorcycle Display Team, in the experimental department (where he actually worked on the prototype Bonneville), and eventually as one of the legendary Triumph Production Testers. This latter role provided countless unique experiences with some of the most iconic British motorcycles ever manufactured.

The story of testing new motorcycles at Meriden as they came off the production lines has never before been published, and this intimate and pragmatic account comes straight from a man who was at the heart of it. With many previously unpublished pictures and service bulletins, plus helpful advice on problems that still exist with the bikes today, this is a unique book about a fascinating time and place in the British motorcycle industry.
