The bike requiring an ID on page 20 (OBM Readers’ Letters, September), featuring the parents of Hugh MacKenzie, is a 1926 Triumph Model Q. The Model Q was the up-market Model P, with additional nickel plating and polished carb, crankcase and gearbox, plus an aluminium piston instead of the cast-iron piston of the standard Model P.
Hence at £46-10-0 was £3-2-6 more expensive than the 1926 standard Model P.
