From the publisher: “The official biography of the man who was probably the most important individual in the history of the British motorcycle industry. Born in 1901, Edward Turner was a truly gifted individual whose forceful character, design flair and business acumen drove Triumph to such heights of success that the company often struggled to meet the clamouring demand for its products from all around the world. Embodying lightness with a powerful vertical twin engine Turner’s design for the 1937 Speed Twin was revolutionary, and so good that the model remained in production for 29 years… Long overdue, this deeply researched work gets past Turner’s irascible exterior to reveal the man, his life and work, and the huge contribution to his country and the evolution of the motorcycle.” Heavily illustrated.
