  1. There is no more famous motorcycle than the Triumph Bonneville, the Bonnie, 'the best motorcycle in the world', and the Meriden factory producing this icon was a personal Mecca to fans of the marque. Film stars such as Steve McQueen visited Meriden for their Triumphs. But on the brink of what should have been its biggest ever sales season, the BSA parent company dramatically collapsed. The Conservative government reacted, and Norton-Villiers-Triumph was created. The new owners decided to close down Meriden...so the workers locked them out. There followed protracted political negotiations, affected all the while by national government changes, ministers' attitudes, national and international economic conditions and, throughout all this, the world's continuing desire for the Triumph. As much a study of changing socio political attitudes as of an economically traumatic time for both Triumph and the country, socialist John Rosamond's unique position within the workers' co-operative makes this work a fascinating account of a story never before told from the inside.The reversal of his role from worker to chairman brought with it new responsibilities, bringing home to him the passion that employees, customers and dealers had for Triumph, and how that could keep Meriden from closing and the Bonneville in production. During all these desperate struggles, the Triumph Bonneville became the best-selling motorcycle of its class, winning the coveted Motor Cycle News Motorcycle of The Year award at the end of the seventies. Yet within just a few years of this, Meriden and the Bonnie were finally gone. All the rescue attempts, the lifesaving international orders, and the negotiations for a reprieve with the new Thatcher government are covered here in unique detail, as is the introduction of new models that Meriden hoped would attract a 'white knight'. Lavishly illustrated with never-before-seen photographs from the personal collections of the

  3. These immortal motorcycles, powered by Triumph's magnificent parallel-twin engine, are probably the most popular and sought after classic bikes in the world, and for most owners and potential buyers the question of originality is very important. The problem is, this information can be hard to find, but in this book long-time Triumph expert and author Steve Wilson provides the answers, backed up by detailed colour photography of outstanding original examples of Speed Twins 1938-58, Tiger T100s 1939-58, Thunderbirds 1950-62, Tiger T110s 1953-61, and T120 Bonnevilles 1959-62. Mechanical components, frame, suspension, brakes, electrics, wheels, metalwork, instruments, badging, trim and colours and finishes are all covered, with some 300 specially commissioned photographs pinpointing correct original equipment and specification.

  4. This is a meticulously detailed history of the Triumph Bonneville: its antecedents, how it came about, and year-by-year production changes, with detailed technical specifications and contemporary road test reports showing how the Bonneville compared with its rivals. However, the history of the bike cannot be separated from the turbulent story of the company that built it. Triumph went from huge successes in the 1960s, when the Bonneville conquered North America, to troubled times in the early 1970s, leading to the formation of the workers co-operative that heroically kept the Bonneville alive for a further nine years. All this is covered here, plus details on how Triumph spares producer Les Harris took over production into the late '80s. Unlike other Bonneville books, this one also tells you how to buy one of these iconic bikes secondhand - all the pitfalls, what to look for, and what they are really like to live with. Whichever one you choose, it should be fast, agile and good looking ...on a twisty country road, there's nothing like a Bonnie, and with information on clubs, websites, spares, and the latest modifications and upgrades, this book will help you get the one you deserve.

  6. There are lots of books about the Triumph Bonneville, about its history, performance, lineage and the minutiae of its specification, but none of them tell you what to look for when buying one secondhand. That's what this book is about - it aims at being a straightforward, practical guide to buying a used Bonnie. It won't list all the correct color combinations for each year, or analyse the bike's design philosophy, or consider its background as part of a troubled industry - there are excellent books listed at the end of this one which do all of that. But hopefully it will help you avoid buying a dud. Point by point, it takes the reader through everything that needs looking at when buying a Bonnie, plus spares prices, which is the best model to buy for your needs, a look at auctions, restorations and paperwork.Over 29 years in production, the Bonneville is for some the definitive postwar British vertical twin, perhaps even the definitive British bike of all time, with all its strengths, weaknesses and character. Although there might seem to be a wide range of models and special editions, all are based around the same 649cc or 747cc vertical twin.There were plenty of changes over the years, but none of them changed the basic format of this classic British bike.Aside from all the history, the Bonneville remains a tremendous classic to own, so long as you're prepared to look after it. The last Bonnies truly deserve the term 'practical classic.' Whichever one you choose, it should be fast, agile and good looking, and on a twisty English B road, there's nothing like a Bonnie. One hundred colour photos, useful appendices and expert advice mean this book could save you 1000's.
