It’s great to see the manufacturing methods employed by Triumph during the 1940s (or 1950s) in this film, the total lack of automation and resulting man hours required to build a motorcycle is remarkable to see.

The film is cut into 3 parts at about 10 minutes per part, I really recommend that you take the time to watch the whole thing, I’ve watched it through twice now and I’m beginning to suspect that I was born 60 years too late.
