Post Sale Update: This Bonnie sold for $13,100 after 72 bids on eBay.
When people think of classic bikes, Triumph often comes to mind, and the silhouette of a Bonneville slowly takes shape. As people look back to the past with more and more nostalgia, memories of fouled spark plugs and endless kickstarts fade away as the values of certain desirables creep towards their modern counterparts. The Bonneville T120 is one of those models that has blessed generation after generation with their first taste of freedom.
This two owner example (VIN: T120RCD44389) stayed under one roof for 46 years before changing hands in 2016. 1970 was the first year of the red paint, and this bike sits with 7,947 miles. All original paint combined with a refurbished seat makes the bike look factory fresh. While some people appreciate originality at all costs, I appreciate the installed set of modern Dunlop tires. Hagerty Insurance suggests even a ‘Good Condition’ classic Bonneville example is worth $10,000. With the MSRP of a 2018 T120 of $11,850, how much are the good old days worth to you?
