Having direct experience with the old marque taught me the importance of having good clean looks on a bike that's standing still, a normal condition for the British bikes of the 60's. Though Triumphs weren't generally as bad as BSAs or Nortons, taking a long ride with a group normally required a chase truck to carry victims of the inevitable mechanical failures that plagued those bikes.



Very pretty bikes, though. And the old Bonnevilles were undoubtdely the most beautiful of all. The old non-unit construction Bonnevilles and Tigers were IMHO the pinnacle of British aesthetic design. Few have equalled it since.
