Triumph is holding a Bonneville Build off on it’s UK website. You can vote for the best build from a list of nine of the finalists that have been selected so far.
Dealers across the UK are participating in the build-off and there are some truly unique builds here. The participants had to abide by one basic rule. They had to be a 900cc or 1200cc Bonneville. Otherwise, the builders were encouraged to get creative, and it appears that some of them certainly did.
There are very clearly some different design philosophies and techniques at work. Some sought to craft the Bonneville into a sportbike, while others took the model a completely different route and went after a WWII military bike look. There’s also just about everything in between from cafe racers to scramblers.
To learn more about each of the nine builds that you can vote for, check out the list of options at Triumph’s event webpage. From there, you can read more about each build and then vote for your personal favorite. You will have to give up your email to vote, but that’s not too bad of a trade.
