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. By 1967 the handling problems associated with earlier versions had been sorted and 12-volt electrics standardized.

This Bonneville 650 is a 1967 in Aubergine over Alaskan White – a genuine Triumph color for that year - the paint mixed expertly by the talented Don Hutchinson. This matching numbers bike, found in the Classic Vintage Motor Bikes Collection has been through a ground-up restoration in the past year. The vendor advises us that the engine was torn down and received new valves, pistons, connecting rods, the crank was balanced and then carefully reassembled into its newly vaporized cases. New Amal 930 Concentric carburetors were installed together with a new wiring harness into the newly powder-coated frame, fork legs, plus silver front and black rear wheel hubs with genuine, correct, re-chromed Dunlop wheels with stainless steel spokes, and genuine new Reynold chain. New 'period style' Dunlop, 3.25 front and 4.0 rear, tires were fitted and the wheels balanced. Original cadmium plated hardware was used where possible. A genuine Lucas headlight, taillight and reflectors lens and housings are installed as are the correct stainless steel front and rear fenders, and genuine tool tray and battery brackets. Now showing about 15 test miles since the restoration, the Bonneville's condition can be described succinctly as "time warp new."
