1970 Triumph Bonneville
Frame no. T120RCD43264
Engine no. T120RCD43264
Named for one of the most evocative model designations in the history of motorcycling, the Triumph Bonneville owes its existence to record-breaking successes achieved on the Utah salt flats in 1958. A new alloy cylinder head with inlet ports splayed wide to accommodate twin carburetors had become available as a tuning aid early in 1958 and it was, chiefly, this innovation that enabled the specially prepared T110 to so far eclipse the performance of the standard version.

Triumph lost no time in capitalizing on its technical breakthrough, announcing a new model equipped with the splayed 'head and twin Amal carburetors in September 1958 - the Bonneville.

Dating from the last year of production prior to the introduction of the oil-in-frame model, this unit-construction T120R is said to run perfectly.
