Total restoration, superb order comes with some pictures and a Triumph Certificate of Authenticity, showing she has matching numbers and was built on 28.6.61. Previous owners, father and son had the bike for 23 years. Some early history.

Auctioneers Notes: This is a wonderful opportunity to own a piece of British motor bike history, there are 7 in all, including 5 restored Bonnevilles. One of these 5 was already restored when purchased and the other 4 have been completely restored by Richard Allen – see appendix 1. He knew the deceased previous owner for over approx 60 years and the beautiful bikes were gifted to him in acknowledgement of their friendship. He restored all these bikes and his standard of workmanship is second to none. One bike I would like to specially mentioned is JVS877 and the certificate of authenticity shows she was built in 1958 and is believed to be one of the very first bikes to come of the production line. Now, to the other 2, one of which is a Triumph Tiger which is absolutely beautiful and the other one is for you people out there who like to tinker. It is a Triumph Bonneville which needs restoring and is sold at no reserve. It is worth noting, none of these bikes have run since the restoration and if you look at the speedometers, which have been rebuilt, they have only covered one or two miles, so a light recommissioning is recommended before use.
PS for serious buyers – if you supply your name and telephone number to Alice 01202 745466 – she will pass the information on to Richard Allen, who is very pleased to call you back.
