Land Speed Record Holder – 1971 Triumph Bonneville

In England, Race by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Triumph Bonneville got its name from the Bonneville Salt Flats – this example pays homage to its history as it earned the Production Pushrod 650cc motorcycle land speed record at Bonneville in 2018 with an average speed of 111.410 miles per hour.

This example (VIN: JG-31913) was built by Lew Terpstra and ridden to the world record by Shane Brings. It was also featured in the 2013 Documentary Film, “The Bonneville Project.” You can watch the first 10 minutes below or catch the whole thing here for free (with ads).

It’s spent the last four years on display at the Throttlestop Museum, and they’re letting it go to make room for some new exhibits.
