Can't see enough detail to be sure of the model, but it is probably a Speedtwin.

I think a Wolseley 4/44 (?) No it's a 6/90 according to John, but the picture is for the bykes The wolseley is listed there: /vehicle_267916-Wolseley-6-90-1954.html
Very hard to see, I guess they are Triumph Speedtwins
March to Aldermaston
Cest une Triumph mais je ne sais pas advantage. Y a une jolie Vauxhall Velox Type L (1948+) à gauche ça vaut peut-être la peine de répertorier?
It is a Speedtwin from the early to mid-1950s. Can't see if it is sprung-hub or swing-arm read end.

Triumph? sidepanesl check , front mudguard check , yes I would say Triumph Triumph, typical timing cover ASO
Go Kart Go
Plate is London 58 on .
Looks like a Speed Twin also looks like it has a bathtub rear enclosure so this makes it 1960, as only had them in this year.
There's a lot of police bike action in the film - no idea how many bikes/types involved. These shots from the trailer: Probably Triumph... Definetly Triumph , probably a Speed Twin .
New captures from the film, including main replaced by same capture. This page now exclusively for the pair of bikes used by the 2 baddie cops (Peter Vaughan and Peter Bowles) who usually ride around as a duo on MP 32 and MP 34 plates. Other police bikes in the film have various separate pages.

Triumph Speedtwin about 1960.
This one is 1963 from the 'half bathtub' or bikini rear enclosure.

From the early 1948 funeral of PC Nathaniel Edgar in London.
1946/47 Triumph Speed Twin , (telescopic forks and no headlamp nacelle) no doubt in Amaranth Red .
War And Order
3 of them - ID any you can - or are they all the same??
look to be the same Triumph Speed Twin (1937/1939)
the motorbyke A nous les p'tites Anglaises... Triumph, 100% sûr. Tiger T110, 80%. 1962 ou 1963, y a des chances...
This one is a 500 so is a 5TA or Speedtwin 1962.
Pekka ja Pätkä sammakkomiehinä
Sprung-hub rear means it is 1948-52. Could be either a 500cc Speedtwin or a 650cc Thunderbird.
NICE pics in color! 1st pic & 2nd pic(far side) ->'48-49 Speed Twin 2nd pic(near side)-> '46-47 Speed Twin
The Wrong Arm of the Law
Triumph I'd say Speed Twin, but there is really very little to see of the bike.
From the tank badge, 1950-56.
The Black Rider
On the right, the black bike. The bike is a Triumph - obviously almost brand new in 1954 because it has swing arm rear suspension which was first seen about then. I haven't worked out yet whether it is a 500 Speed Twin or a 650 Thunderbird.
It is a 1954 Triumph Speedtwin. The Thuderbird didn't get the swing arm rear end until the following year.
The Police motorcycle..... looks like a Austin Sixteen from 1946 Its for the bike, not the car that's already listed...not easy to see but is an important part of the movie.
Probably a Triumph 500 Speed Twin.
Dodging the Column
1950+ according to nzcarnerd's comment.
Local police bike. NJH 421 = Hertfordshire, Sept-Dec 1951.
Le grand restaurant
French? Terrot 500 RGST?
Triumph Speed twin, not earlier than 1954 and not later than 1956. I think the Terrot was single with its pipe exiting on the right side.
Vacances explosives! L'aventure est sur la route
The same Triumph Speedtwin and BSA A7 seen elsewhere, except that in this picture we can see that the BSA has swing arm rear suspension so is 1954 or later.

Real plate? According DVLA UJ7847 it's a 1936 Humber 4086CC
Triumph T 100 ou T 110
Åsa-Nisse på nya äventyr
Rigid frame but probably early '50s 5T. Steib sidecar?? Triumph RMC de 1952 I don't know where that designation RMC came from, it is not a model of Triumph known to me.That style of tank badge was used first in 1950, so 1950 Triumph Speedtwin.

Le tracassin ou les plaisirs de la ville
Triumph Tiger T 100, vraisemblablement... -ligne de déco sur le réservoir)
Simplify the filing and add this one to the T100 list instead of Tiger T100. Actually I am not sure that from this angle we can be sure that these are 500s and not 650s.
The Beverly Hillbillies EP: 2.09
Triumph? The logo seems so. Appears to have alloy barrels, so is a Speed Twin from 1958 or later - it might even be a Tiger 100. And Jethro (Max Baer) appears to be doing his own stunt!
L'arbre de Noël
old triumph I think? Triumph, yes. Looks like a pre-unit model. Possibly a Speedtwin from around 1960? Ou, au vu de la hauteur du bloc-cylindres, une 500 TRW? Jun?
Center one & 1st thumbnail picture is '55-56 Speedtwin by tank badge & rear suspension. On the left & 2nd thumbnail picture is TRW as jplemoine says
The Fast and the Furious
Few parts are remains normal shape. Identified from the reduction cover, tank, tank rubber and flame, it may be postwar Triumph Speed Twin (1946- rigid rear suspension model)
Chance of a Lifetime
seen twice entering & once parking up
Pre-war Triumph Speedtwin - note the large headlight. Not sure of the date - I think the first one was 1937.
Would imagine this is a Speed Twin in amaranth red . /vehicle_143882-Triumph-Speed-Twin-1950.html

Marple: Ordeal by Innocence
XSU 846 is a Triumph 498cc dont try and match the number plate..its one of those modern non transferable age related ones..it probably lost its original number years ago There may be some confusion over its plate but this bike certainly looks like an early 1950s Speedtwin.

Chris Barrie's Motoring Wheel Nuts
Triumph.? Yes! Triumph Thunderbird or Speed twin (i can't tell which is ) From fuel tank molding and rear suspension, it's 1950-54. It's a T100. I edit yesterday's my comment for to correct surprising mistake I typed unconsciously wrong 'Bonneville', of course right name is 'Thunderbird'. (Bonneville isn't appeared in this year yet ) And I don't agree with T100. I think leave it as 'Triumph_unknown' or simply label 'Triumph' is good. Identify it is almost impossible from this picture. We have three possibilities (Thunderbird, Tiger100(T100), Speed twin) and T100 has least possibility. Because T100 was mainly sold with silver fenders and fuel tank. Hi Jun, i don't know if you know this link: http://www.motos-anglaises.com/index.htm Maybe it will help you... but it's in french, sorry. Oh! yesterday I googled and find that link. And compared and stared until my eyes became the shape of '60s Bentley 'chinese eye' (now I began to study French, but very s l o w l y ) If the cylinder head is more clear to see, it can be identify. Anyway, thank you. There are some other (triumph) pics from this movie...I'll add them today.! (..not known if they are the same bikes.?)
Thank you added pictures, stronghold Compare this and new picture, reduction-case cover seems slightly flat at end. So I change my mind and say it's Triumph Speed twin.
Classic Triumph Cars of Yesteryear
engine and primary chaincase Triumph, as the rear guard fuel tank BSA? driver looks Nicholson (Bob?) reputed scramble compétitor of the '50 Bill Nicholson Reminds me of one of my favourite CD cover photos: Nothing to do with matching the bike - just the characters and their faces, and wondering what exactly was going on. And it's an excellent CD.
Yes, looks like a much-modified Speed twin from just post WW2.
