Triple H was a motorcycle produced by them between 1922 and 1923. This was a lightweight fitted with a 247cc Morris two-stroke engine. It had a Moss two-speed gearbox, with clutch and kick-starter, and Maplestone centre-spring forks. It also had a special cast silencer with detachable plate for ease of cleaning.
Triplette was a simple machine produced between 1923 and 1925, powered by a 147cc Villiers two-stroke engine, with an Albion two-speed gearbox, or with direct-belt drive. It had very wide mudguards at the front, so the fork blades had to pass through slots cut into the top of the guard.
