As the 1960s dawned, Triumph's larger twins remained recognisably similar to the first Speed Twin of 1938. Unitary construction of engine and gearbox was already a feature of the 350 and 500 twins though, and that innovation duly appeared on the 650s in 1963. The café racer's favourite since its launch, thanks to lusty acceleration and a top speed approaching 120mph, the Bonneville continued in this new form as Triumph's top-of-the-range sports roadster, arriving at what aficionados consider its ultimate specification with the launch of the 1968 model. By this time the frame had been sorted and 12-volt electrics standardised, but welcome improvements included shuttle-valve fork internals, independently adjustable ignition points, Amal Concentric carburettors and a long overdue twin-leading-shoe front brake. For the next couple of seasons the Bonnie continued essentially unchanged, before the disastrous launch of the 'oil-in-frame' models in 1970 precipitated the collapse of the entire BSA-Triumph Group. 'PVN 12G' was purchased by the vendor from a deceased estate in 2008. Since then the Bonnie has seen only very limited use and it is for this reason that it is now offered for sale. While describing the machine as generally in very good condition, the owner mentioned that, for cosmetic reasons, it would benefit if one of the silencers was replaced. Offered with V5C document.
