3. Find a suitable spot on a suitable wall or door.
4. Position the sign thoughtfully using strips of masking tape if necessary.
5. Carefully mount the sign with nails or screws taking utmost care not to damage any part of the design (Tip: Use fibre washers both in front and behind the sign if you're the particular type or have an obsessive-compulsive tendency).

There are still thousands of Meriden-built 650cc T120 Triumph Bonnevilles out there. The pre-units of the late 1950s to the early 1960s. The first of the unit construction bikes of the early to late 1960s. And the more controversial oil-in-frame models from the late 1960s to the early 1970s.
But for many riders, only the pre-units will do. And we can see why they feel that way. There's a special vibe with these bikes. It's largely in the detailing. In the paint. In the way they sit at the kerb. And in the way they feel on the open road.
But hell, we enjoy these now legendary air-cooled parallel twins in much the same way we enjoy our legendary women, and that's any way they come.
Triumph introduced the T120 Bonneville in 1959. Essentially a reworked Thunderbird, the Bonnie cashed in on Johnny Allen's famous record breaking speed run at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, USA when he hit 214.17 mph in September 1956 whilst riding a 650cc Triumph twin.
When the famous 1959 Bonneville arrived a few years later, the die was cast for a new generation of Triumphs which included the bike above, This 1961 T120 Bonnie kept Triumph way ahead of the pack in terms of sales and sex appeal, and is becoming increasingly sought after.
The size of these signs is a generous 300mm x 410mm, which is roughly the size of two A4 sheets of paper. The image is 1,400 dpi, which is way better than most, if not all, of the lesser quality stuff on the market. And the edges are rolled to help preserve those delicate finger nails.
Also, these Triumph T120 Bonneville signs are printed direct to metal in the traditional way.
There are cheaper copies on the market, most of which are of far lower quality. But these are top notch, and like the T120 Bonneville of 1961, you get what you pay for.
Will you like it when you see it? We think so. If we didn't, we wouldn't be flogging 'em.
We package these signs as well as we reasonably can, and we despatch as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours of ordering, and very rarely longer than 2-3 days if stock has run out and needs to be re-supplied.
Either way, we'll keep you posted. And if for any reason we can't supply your sign, we'll tell you without unnecessary delay and will refund your money in full.
And remember this if you will:
