Triumph T120R Bonneville

1969


  • This beautiful T120R Bonneville represents the last of the golden years for the British motorcycle industry
  • The 1969 engine received nitrate-hardened cams, new revised Hepolite pistons with domed crowns and strengthened wrist pins, new connecting rods, a heavier flywheel for vibration, and rubber-mounts for the twin Amal Concentric carbs
  • 421 original miles
  • When compared to the technologically superior, better built, and cheaper bikes from Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki, the Triumph Bonneville looked outdated and outclassed
  • The transmission was almost completely reworked and beefed up with a new shift mechanism, extra hardened gears, larger main and layshafts, and a statically balanced clutch basket
