Paul Smith Triumph Bonneville
Triumph Announces Limited Edition Bonneville Styled
by Paul Smith
August 1, 2005 - Triumph has announced the launch of
two Limited Edition Triumph Bonneville T100s by Paul
Paul Smith is one of Britain's pre-eminent designers,
having led many design trends over the years. The
firm is a globally based enterprise, and it was
established in Nottingham in 1970.
As part of the launch of the ‘Triumph by Paul Smith’
Autumn/Winter 2005 clothing and accessory collection,
Paul Smith customized nine Triumph Bonneville T100’s
with one-off paint designs.
These nine individually designed bikes were not
intended for sale, but to be used as press pieces and
global promotional activity.
In response to the
overwhelming reaction to these special bikes, Triumph
has decided to produce two limited edition Paul Smith
designs for sale.
Inspired by two of the original customized designs,
the “Multi-Union” and “Live Fast” models feature special
hand-painted bodywork and mock-croc leather seats.
Fifty of each design will be produced for sale globally
and each bike will be individually numbered and
authenticated with a certificate, signed by Paul Smith
and John Bloor, Triumph’s owner.
The two Limited Edition Triumph Bonneville T100s by
Paul Smith have a suggested MSRP of $10,999 and can be
ordered through any Triumph dealership on a strictly
first come, first served basis.
Order books will
close as soon as the 100 units are sold and the bikes
will be delivered in March 2006.
The clothing collection will appear in
Paul Smith shops in late August.
