Triumph's long running Bonneville fought off competition from Japan and mainland Europe to remain Britain's top-selling 750 for many years despite the age of its basic design. To celebrate the Silver Jubilee of H.M.The Queen in 1977, Triumph produced a commemorative edition Bonneville which was essentially a standard production model with red, white and blue livery on a silver finish, with coach-lined cycle parts and a chrome plated timing cover and primary chaincase. Red Arrow tyres were standard, as were Girling gas rear units. A limited edition machine, one thousand were built for the home market, one thousand for the USA and four hundred for the rest of the world. This machine was delivered new to a hotelier in Dover and in the present private ownership has been maintained in very good order and to original specification. It is offered with a Swansea registration document and current MOT certificate.
