Triumph Bonneville. The Triumph Bonneville has been one of motorcycling’s most enduring British icons. The name comes from the Utah salt flats where a streamlined twin-cylinder Triumph captured the World Motorcycle Speed Record in 1956. In 1959, the first Bonneville, the T120, appeared, and the Bonneville name would remain a revered badge of motorcycling honor for the following three decades. This elegant, picture-lavish book, featuring Bonnevilles specially photographed in a studio setting, pays tribute by showing all the classic models in exquisite photographic detail, accompanied by an expert commentary. A visual feast for all Bonneville enthusiasts.

Triumph Bonneville. In 1956, American Johnny Allen achieved a record of speed of 214 miles per hour aboard a motorcycle powered by a Triumph twin-cylinder engine. When the record, achieved at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, was disputed by the international ratifying body, Triumph thumbed its nose at that federation by naming what would have been its Tiger T110 the Bonneville. Thus was born an all-tune classic British motorcycle. Mick Walker -- a prolific motorcycle author and former Bonneville racer and Triumph dealer -- uses his intimate knowledge of the model to provide a sweeping portrait of the machine. From the events that led to its development through its heyday, the Bonneville's technical evolution is traced in depth, from the earliest models, the first of which appeared in 1959. A selection of photographs and technical drawings depict both contemporary and restored models. A readable history includes anecdotes from those involved in the Gold Star's success both on and off the track.
