One of the last made at Triumph's historic Meriden factory near Coventry, England, the machine offered here represents the Bonneville in its ultimate specification, featuring Bing carburettors, Bosch turn indicators, Magura switchgear, Marzocchi shock absorbers, Veglia gauges, disc brakes, electric starting, and electronic ignition. These final Meriden-built Triumphs had been well received. 'Changes include a strengthened swing arm, new four-valve oil pump, and American standard fasteners,' reported Motorcycle. 'The polishing of all plated parts is exceptional. The pin-striping is done by hand, of course, and the paint is deep and will last much longer than that done on early Seventies Triumphs.' Rider described the Bonnie as 'remarkable, fuss-free, and reliable', while Cycle World declared: 'ghosts from the Limey past, such as oil leaks, vibration, and faulty electrics were not a factor'.

A totally original, matching-numbers example, this Bonneville Electro had covered only 188 miles when purchased by the previous owner in 1992 and now has c.300 miles on the odometer. Since being acquired by the vendor in 2019, it has been serviced and a new set of Mikuni carburetor's were fitted to replace the old ones.
