Triumph T120R Bonneville
The 1961 model Bonneville is generally/arguably regarded as the one to have and this matching numbers example in concours condition is as good as we've ever seen. Old log books confirm not only engine and frame but also the registration is original. Rebuilt with a new old stock (NOS) crank and many new parts meticulously sourced and lovingly assembled, the engine has hardly if ever been run. If it weren't for the known quality of the restorer's work (other bikes are testimony to that) that might be cause for concern but in this case it means the inside is as good as the outside. Very rare indeed. Even the wiring is factory standard and expertly done. Outside you can see; lots of stainless fittings and original parts abound, paintwork is superb and attention to detail is unusually high. It was rebuilt abot fifteen years ago and has been stored inside as part of a cherished collection until now. Can be recommissioned and supplied as a perfectly working machine or left with nothing more than oil in her tanks for display. If it's of interest the bike was supplied by Jim Sheehan in Bracknell, Berkshire, a local dealer to us and a famous name from the past. First registered on 27th March 1961 and stayed in the Bracknell/ Crowthorne/ Reading area for all it's life. Notes hint that it was 750cc at one time long ago and it fell into a poor state over the years so a full restoration to standard specification is what she needed and what she got. You really don't see them like this very often.
