The Triumph Bonneville owes its existence to record-breaking successes achieved on the Utah salt flats in 1958, when a Tiger 110 set a new 650cc production machine record of over 147mph. Launched at the Motor Cycle Show in September 1958, the production Bonneville remained recognizably similar to the first Speed Twin of 1938 for the next few years, as did Triumph\'s other large-capacity twins. Unitary construction of engine and gearbox was already a feature of the 350 and 500 twins though, and that innovation duly appeared on the 650s in 1963. There\'s little argument that a late-1960s Triumph Bonneville is one of the best-looking British motorcycles ever made, with just-right proportions and performance to match. This local bike has been in current ownership for 35 years, testament to the machine, in fact it has all the feel and appearance of a well-loved motorcycle. The most recent MOT expired in April 2018 and there are several old certificates in the file, in addition to a V5c and an older V5c.
