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: 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.
