Triumph unknown in Movies
Look at Life: The Village Sleeps Again
These bikes look similar to the one used in Thunderball /vehicle_7389-BSA-Lightning-A65L-1965.html . Because they have the 'bath tub' bodywork they are definitely Triumphs but which variant I am not sure. said to be 5TA in this forum http://hddaudio.net/viewtopic.php?id=5626&p=2 found 1961 3TA 350ccm and 5TA 500ccm with bath tub, we have 5TA bath tub Police on this site! /vehicle_41445-Triumph-5TA-1959.html here 3TA bath tub Police bike http://www.flickr.com/photos/lincsranger64/5078742605/ ultimate proofe 5TA http://geordiebiker.blogspot.de/2011/02/toy-triumphs.html
Those Avon fairing were very popular at the time.
It's a Triumph (road-bike) ... with it's seat missing.! (1960's) Peut-être une 6T Thunderbird customisée (échappements relevés, guidon "corne de vache"...) Smaller, 350 or 500, it has the teardrop shaped casting in the primary cover. 3TA/5TA/early Tiger 100. Interesting mix of rigid frame suggesting late '40s? - with a tank with a 'mouth organ' badge (1957 or later?)
Triumph rear subframes are bolt-on, hardtail replacements have been available since the 60's.
Sunbeam? Triumph twin, early 1960's/ late 1950's
It seems confirmed a few seconds after:
The Wild One
1949 Triumph unknown
La première moto (en arrière plan) On the right, a Triumph. Can't be certain of the model but it a sprung hub rear end which would make it about 1949-52.
The Sandwich Man
1960 Triumph unknown
Reg 532PPL Has the small 'bathtub' enclosure so Speed Twin 5TA
Late 1960 plate. I think we've had police Triumph bikes in 123 PPL series before.
1948 Triumph unknown
JYR 483 July 48-Oct 49 plate "allocated in blocks".
500 Speed Twin 5T ??
Meridan era Triumph I note the conical rear hub which is 1971/2 but I think the bike is earlier. The front brake is mid 1960s. Not sure if it is twin or single carb.
Cette moto étant un joyeux assemblage de pièces d'origines diverses, difficile d'en tirer la moindre conclusion définitive!
On The Beat - The British Policeman 1900-1984 EP: Extras
Looks like Triumph badge on tank. More 1935+ footage from Hendon - if sequencing is correct this could be 1938.
Ryan EP: 15
Triumph changed to those forks late 71, conical hub also, the only match I can find for the paint scheme is 72 Trident T150 but it clearly isn't one. Must be a 650 as I don't believe 500's ever got those forks. Bonneville or Tiger? nzcarnerd?
1967 Triumph unknown
It has to be 1967 because it has the new tank badge but still has the small front brake. I can't see enough of it to tell if it is a 500 or 650.
If a genuine UK plate, 836 BYE was London March 61 to Jan 62, "allocated in blocks" so possible for a police bike. But lots of plates in the film are dodgy ... Swansea has no record of the plate, assuming the restoration is reasonably accurate then the headlamp nacelle, skinny mudguard and colour would indicate pre-bathtub Triumph, pre '57?
Plus the tank badge is 'pre mouth organ'.
The tail light/mudguard/indicators have hints of modern Triumph.
Monkeys, Go Home!
Looks British right! a Triumph twin but wich one ?
It is one of the unit construction twins from 1957 or later. Could be either a 350 or a 500. The paint colour is about right for a 1960 Tiger 90.
Le plus vieux métier du monde EP: 5
Hum pas de Triumph dans la police à cette époque. Par contre, des BSA A50, oui. Cela pourrait-il en être ?
Une fille épatante
1954 Triumph unknown
Date on registration basis only. Norton?
tss tss ! Triumph spring hub may be Speedtwin .... C? 75 late '40 or early '50 when the "new at that time" registration start
Les salauds vont en enfer
Could be a 5T , T100 or T110 . Anyone pin it down , 5T had tank top parcel rack and this may have one .
All the three Triumphs (which are maybe only two in reality) are involved in chases and this one in a stunt, the first one being one main character's bike. The last one is taken as a spoil by Trintignant for a ride. T110 or Thunderbird ? The bike in he thumb pic above is the TRW - different to one in main pic. Main pic a Speed Twin?
Now let's identify this last one: T110? Thunderbird? Speed Twin?
Triumph inspired, headlamp nacel, seat, silencer
Both meant to be police bikes.
Triumph T100R Daytona GB racing number mm not so sure , trail tyres , trail handlebars , 2 into 1 exhaust, say Trophy or Tiger for me . Yes, definitely not Daytona. It has only one carb. Maybe Trophy 5T or ??
It's old, silver engine casing
CHiPs EP: 4.07
1971 Triumph unknown
1971 Triumph - a Bonneville I guess. It has the conical front brake, new style forks and instrument mounts first seen for 1971.
Maren Morris: My Church
1971 Triumph unknown
We can't see much detail of the engine but we can see it has the conical brake front end so is 1971 or later. The rider is always in the way so we can't see the carburettors to determine whether there are one or two.
1956 Triumph unknown
Local Police escort. 614 ABH = Buckinghamshire, Sept-November 1956. No other useful view. Either a Speed Twin or a Thunderbird, does the reg' show on any of the vehicle check sites?
Nothing found on plate sites. Adjacent plates - 612/613/615/616 also blank.
Up the Junction
1965 Triumph unknown
HLL 110 C, May '65 London, nothing on DVLA, Blue over Silver seems to match just about any '65 Triumph.
1957 Triumph unknown
It is a 1957 or later Triumph twin but I can't see enough to be sure of the model.
The Running Man
1959 Triumph unknown
Triumph Speed Twin?
I suspect they might be 3TAs. Some research needed to find what the Spanish Police rode.
Starsky and Hutch EP: 1.03
1964 Triumph unknown
I think this is a Honda CB 125 or 350-1970's Non. Pas une japonaise (fourche et forme du moteur), c'est clairement une Anglaise. Triumph? A identifier! I can only say modified Triumph. It's twin-cylinder model & year is from 1964.
A moins que ce ne soit une TR 5 Trophy (1953)? (quoique... moteur plus moderne... Mais un moteur, ça se change...)
Licensed to Love and Kill
1958 Triumph unknown
Not sure if this is a triumph i think it could be a norton commando interpool mk1 specially built for poilice use Check this out and see what you think Link to "www.motorcyclespecs.co.za"
It's actually one of Triumph (1958-) by front fender stay & brake drum, but we can't fix the model & year by these pictures... *please compare the fender stay & brake drum Link to "home.planet.nl"
XIII: The Series EP: 1.04
1974 Triumph unknown
Looks to be circa 1974 bike with the standard front disc brake. Augmented by a custom rear disc in place, or in addition to, the standard rear drum.
Police Story EP: 3.10
I think it's a Triumph, too blurred to tell if it's a T120 or T140 Bonneville.
It has the conical front brake hub which limits the years down to 1971 or 1972, probably, even though I think the hub might still have been available for a few years after.
MacGyver EP: 2.17
Some Norton from the 60s? No, it is a Triumph. Not later than 1967 going from the front brake. Visible also in Ep. 2.18 :
Thanks! I wasn't sure because of the badge on the fuel tank.
Dalziel and Pascoe EP: 7.02
Triumph? (Joyeux Noël, au fait...)

War And Order
The only shot of this bike. But does it match any of the others??
Main replaced with better quality. xYH 742 plate.
Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em EP: 2.7

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Which would be its correct model name?
In the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001), Hagrid rode a Triumph Bonneville. In this one it's a Royal Enfield with a Watsonian sidecar. (See Youtube "Hagrid's Motorbike")
The vehicle details for GDO 558 are:
- Date of Liability 01 07 2000
- Date of First Registration 11 03 1954
- Year of Manufacture 1954
- Cylinder Capacity (cc) 500cc
- CO2 Emissions Not Available
- Fuel Type PETROL
- Vehicle Color NOT STATED
Not a Bonneville, then? Or is it not the good plate? It might as well be the same as the one in the Philosopher's Stone, as that movie was filmed in 2000-01, and the filmmakers got it in their possession shortly before filming commenced. I'd think that the engine and tail light appears to modern for 1954
It is a mounted with a Watsonian sidecar, like on this picture.
