The Triumph Bonneville needs no introduction, simply the most iconic post War British production motorcycle ever built. Developed from Edward Turners brilliant T100 / T110 Triumph design it was launched at the 1959 Earls Court Motorcycle show and dubbed ‘The best Motorcycle in the World’ its name commemorated Johnny Allen’s Triumph land-speed record runs at Bonneville Salt Flats in 1956. Production was aimed mainly at the lucrative US market where enthusiasts were demanding more power, and that is where this matching number early example was imported from.
A complete but totally unrestored bike it was comprehensively restored by Triumph specialist Vagn Jensen in Denmark to a very high standard. Finished in the 1960 colour scheme of two tone blue the bike is in ‘show’ condition and has only coved test miles since completed. Having been registered here in the UK it comes with a UK V5C logbook and MoT until Nov. 2016. A true collectors bike early, genuine T120’s are in short supply.
