Ideal Bonneville Very nice rebuild Engine less than 500 km French registration title Frame n° ED50779 Engine n° ND30672 As mentioned, this bike is a reassembly made with scattered parts. While the registration document indicates a 1971 model year, the frame, reworked, seems to date from 1968 or 1969, the engine, from 1970 as well as the fork and the front brake, the "conical drum" rear wheel from 1971, while the tank is the sought after slim line. The single carburettor cylinder head comes from a TR6. The rims are aluminium. At the end of the 1930s, the respectable Triumph company presents a new motorbike, as beautiful as effective, the 500 Speed Twin, which is singled out by its twin-cylinder engine facing the road, whereas the twin-cylinder motorbikes of the time have an engine in the longitudinal direction. It was such a success that other British manufacturers soon adopted this design. After the war, the bike evolved to 650cc and the twin-carburettor Sport version adopted the Bonneville name following a speed record on the famous American salt lake. The most beautiful - and reliable! - Bonneville T120s, which ceased production in 1973, are those of the 1968-1970 period, before the oil tank was incorporated into the frame. This 1970 Bonneville was rebuilt by Mr B. between 2017 and 2021, from a pile of scattered parts. The competition restoration also benefited the single carburetor engine (not matching) which was completely rebuilt, and a 5-speed gearbox was fitted. The bike, which has covered less than 500 km since its rebuilding, will be up to its future owner to put the first real kilometers on this desirable bike.
