Triumph Bonneville

1959 - 1988. Meriden & Harris bikes

 

So what's inside the book?

 

• No-nonsense, straightforward guide to buying a Bonnie
• Detailed, step-by-step guide showing points to look for
• Restore, or pay more to start with?
• Spares prices - Relative value when viewing each model
• Auction guide
• Useful contacts - clubs, parts suppliers, restorers
• Problems that arise with lack of use
• The reality of living with a Bonneville
• Invest pennies, save potentially thousands!


 

The greatest classic bike of them all? We think so. We've owned a lot of Bonnies, and we currently run two of 'em—and we can't live without 'em. It's been proved. In the lab. Severe withdrawal and major cold turkey was the result; the point being that if you buy a Bonnie, there's every chance you'll become addicted too.

 

Be warned.

 

But wait! You don't want to throw your money away on some old heap—which isn't to be confused with a rough diamond. This book is intended to give you the inside track on Meriden Triumph's most famous son. It's not a sophisticated tome heavy on technical minutiae and engineering orthodoxy. Instead, it's a practical and pragmatic guide that shows you the really basic stuff that's so easily overlooked in the heat of the buying moment.

 

 

The book covers all Meriden Triumph era bikes from the original '59 Bonnie to the later stop-gap bikes that Les Harris built—bikes that kept the flame alight while John Bloor's Triumph was getting ready to accept the baton and continue the race.

 

So here's the plan; buy the guide, check out the bike, make a shrewd and insightful deal, shake hands on it, and enjoy hundreds or thousands of satisfied miles on the road astride your new acquisition. You ready for all that? Or are you gonna die first?
