In 2020, Triumph debuted a special edition of their venerable Bonneville T120 – we’ll leave it to them for the description: “Triumph will launch two very special editions of the iconic Bonneville T120 and T100 that celebrate the iconic name and legend of Bud Ekins.”
“A 1960s motorcycle icon, Bud was a professional Hollywood stuntman, top motocross and desert racer, and the rider who made arguably the most famous motorcycle film jump in history in the WWII film The Great Escape on behalf of his movie star friend and ISDT partner Steve McQueen. These two new beautiful special editions feature a one-off Californian inspired Bud Ekins paint scheme and a range of dedicated special details and touches.”
“The 2020 Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T100 Bud Ekins Special Editions take all of the classic style and modern capability of the standard Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T100 and bring an even higher standard of finish, including:
– Exclusive California-inspired tank design with striking California ‘flying globe’ logo
– Unique Triumph heritage tank logo
– Unique Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T100 Bud Ekins logo on the side panels
– Dedicated front mudguard paint finish with beautiful California ‘flying globe’ logo”
This example is VIN: SMTD40HL1LTAD2415. The seller purchased the bike from a Colorado dealership in September 2021.
The odometer shows 8,863 miles.
The seller reports that he had the “500-mile service performed” along with “annual service and tires.”
The seller notes “minor markings on the chrome, probably from my boots. But no dents, scratches, etc.”
It is riding on Shinko SR 712R tires with date codes of 3621 and 5021.
Currently located in Los Angeles, California, this Triumph is offered on a clean California title with registration current through September 2023.
