1966 Triumph T120R Bonneville
Registration no. HBL 69D
Frame no. T120DU 31575
Engine no. T120 14624
Triumph’s ‘Bonneville’ was the twin to beat in the ‘sixties, having a 120 mph performance with an exhaust note to match, good handling and an appearance which said ‘speed’ to all who admired it. Even the name, justified by Triumph’s success on the eponymous salt flats, sounded sportier than the opposition’s. HBL 69D makes no claim to be wholly original, though the differences are hard to spot. It is fitted with a ’69 engine unit which has recently been balanced and had new rods, rings, valves, guides and alternator and, for better stopping, a ’68 twin leading-shoe brake. Always well-maintained, with many bills on file, the ‘Bonneville’ has been sparingly used by its long-term owner and is offered with V5C, MOT, a sheaf of papers and three workshop books.
