Sectioned. An early example of the simple but robust single cylinder engine which contributed much to the popularity of motor cycling before World War I. This 3.5 hp Triumph design established the trend for side-valve motorcycle engines for the next twenty years. A chain sprocket later replaced the belt pulley drive on the crankshaft.
