From the rear side cover: The Thruxton Bonnevilles are a batch of 52 bikes built by Triumph in 1965 to meet new homologation requirements in production racing; only about another one hundred or so were built. Because they were referred to in the build books as made 'to Thruxton specification' these bikes became known as Thruxton Bonnevilles, but not by Meriden. Although built supposedly to the homologation rules of the time, the factory included many parts not generally available to the public - in common with most other manufacturers! They were very successful racing machines capable of sustained high speeds, and with the handling to match. This book describes how the Bonneville was conceived, the design modifications carried out by the factory, including detail on special 'works only' parts for racing, race preparation, and their immensely successful racing campaigns especially at Thruxton (after which the bike was named), Montjuich Park in Barcelona and the Isle of Man TT Production Races.

This is a book for all Triumph and motorcycle racing enthusiasts and especially those who own or race a Bonneville!
