This is the classic Triumph Bonneville! The model number is T 120 R but the common name is “Bonneville” because this motorcycle was the fastest motorcycle on the Bonneville Salt Flats speed trials in 1968 and the Triumph Factory stood tall on that accomplishment naming this model Bonneville. This is a fully restored motorcycle with less than 2500 miles on the restoration. There are a few blemishes in the tank paint from storage that will need attention.
