I have a German built Triumph B200 TWN and would like any information or source for information on this bike. The one I have is the type with the cylinderhead 90 degrees on to the block. And as far as I have understood this is the rarest one of the Triumph B200 (the other type has the cylinderhead on approximately 15 degrees to the to the block). It is a 1937 model year. Have no photos at the time, but will try to take some soon. The bike is partly restored.

I finally got the Triumph out of its hiding while cleaning up a bit in my garage due to work on a jeep... I know, I know, it is not even worth mentioning a jeep here so I am a bit Well here is the Triumph. The colour is wrong, and there is a lot of work to be done on it. Rolf BTW: I am looking for all kind of information on this bike, and also parts.

This is the only war time picture I have ever seen of a Triumph B200 TWN with the cylinder head 90 degrees on the engine block. Most of them did come with an angeled cylinder head. Mine has the one 90 deg on.... The picture is from the book "Kräder der Wehrmacht" by Horst Hinrichsen. ISBN 3-7909-0487-2 A book I can recomend (German text) The text below the picture is: "Dieses leichte Meldekrad, eine deutche Triumph (TWN) vom Typ B 200, war sehr selten anzutreffen. Die Maschine wurde zwichen 1936 und 1937 hergestellt und verfügte nur über 196 ccm Haubraum. Hier handelt es sich offensichtlich um ein requiriertes Krad."
