1950 TWN BDG Barn Find PicturesAdd Your Photos!
I found this TWN in a barn. It is complete and has just one owner since 1950. I will start to renovate this spring.
Triumph-Werke Nürnberg AG or TWN, was German bicycle and motorcycle company. In 1886, Siegfried Bettmann founded the Triumph bicycle factory in Coventry, England, and in 1896 he founded a second bicycle factory in his native Nuremberg, Germany, under the same Triumph name. Both factories branched out into making motorcycles: the Coventry factory in 1902 and the Nuremberg factory in 1903.
Dur to brand confusion, the German arm of the business was renamed TWN in 1913.
The BDG 250 you can see in this picture was made from 1949 to 1957 and boasts a 12hp 248cc two stroke engine capable of 68mph.
