Additional photos of this Triumph Bonneville are available here for your perusal.

The Triumph Bonneville needs no introduction, but this classic Brit was named after the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Triumph was fairly successful racing this bike, including wins at the Isle of Man TT Production 750cc class in ’67 and ’69.

The Bonneville was produced in its original run (the T120) for 16 years, with a 650cc engine that made 46 horsepower. The parallel twin was based on the Tiger 110, but with upgraded Amal carbs that helped the bike attain 115 miles per hour stock – though Johnny Allen set a record in 1956 with a heavily modified Triumph hitting 214.17 mph over a standing mile.

This example is VIN: T120RAC10425, Engine #: AC10425)

The seller bought it from the original owner in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California in 1988. Since then, he’s covered just 500 miles. The odometer now shows 11,474 miles.

He notes that the original tank has been replaced with a larger one that features the badge from an earlier model.

Other than that, it’s original. The gentleman who maintained it for me and installed the large tank (he kept the small tank) was John Gallagher a famous Triumph specialist in Venice, California.”

There is a slight tear in the seat, yellowed tachometer gauge (seen above), and minor cosmetic wear commensurate with age.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment if you’d like to view it), this Triumph is offered on a clean California title with a non-op registration.

The seller is letting this Bonneville go as he is renting his home out and needs the space. Have any Bonneville stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments!
