The Thruxton legend was born with the first Bonneville and its success in the gruelling 1958 Thruxton 500 championship.

From its debut victory with a prototype ridden by legendary British rider Mike Hailwood, the T120 racer earned the Thruxton nickname.

With just 49 engines initially tuned for the Thruxton championship, the nickname stuck and not only became the official name for Triumphs winning TTs and US AMAs in the 1960s and 70s, but also inspired a generation of young Café Racers to customize their T120s.

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.

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