Can anyone help with Identification of this motorbike?

Tauranga, New Zealand

I have this photo of my Grandfather beside his motorbike and would like to know what type of bike it is. The pic is dated 1911. Any ideas?

Pretty sure it's a Triumph. What a great picture!

Here's a picture, see how it has two different sprockets, one for the pedals and one huge one for the motor drive. You can barely see a Triumph logo on the saddlebag.

Yes it sure looks like it! We have only just found this photo and are very pleased with it.

My brother had a Norton Commando - were they also from the Triumph line? He died a few years ago but would have been stoked if he had known that our Grandad had an early one!

Just posting a pic of my brothers bike.

What a great photo of your grandfather and his motorbike!

I just happened across this forum and I know this is an older thread but I googled and found this info on a vintage Triumph Motorbike. This says it was the first all British Motorcycle. It looks a lot like the one in your photo: http://www.webbs.co.nz/auction-item/triumph-tourist
