Made in Britain

Image result for Siegfried Bettmann plaque

Reading through a copy of Bike mag I saw a snippet that made me chuckle.  It seems Triumph is not quite as English as rumoured.  Technically it's German, after Siegfried Bettmann, who arrived in Coventry  and married a local lass before setting up the company in 1896.
