The Fifties and Sixties were years of great splendour in British motorcycle history, an era in which all enthusiasts turned to the country’s marques knowing that they would find the maximum in elegance, fascination and performance. At the time, British motorbike production included numerous big cubic capacity models mainly destined for America, often with twin cylinder engines; an important technical choice that distinguished home market production from that of other European countries. The success of historic brands like BSA, Triumph, Norton, Royal Enfield, Matchless and Velocette was also favoured by a lack of competition from Japan, a phenomenon that would soon explode onto the scene. But the British giants bolstered by their dominant position in the marketplace, did not invest in re-tooling or the development of new models. A conservative choice which made their lives difficult as early as the late Sixties, leading to their definitive demise and marking the end of an epoch.
