The rarest of the 1959 Bonnevilles. Approximately only 451 of these machines received the blue/grey paint treatment. This machine has undergone a detailed and time consuming professional restoration by Tim Bardsley worthy of its heritage. This Bonneville has correct matching numbers for the introduction year of only 1700 produced for 1959. This high performance model is regarded as the quintessential British twin, being the the only year the Bonneville model was fitted with Headlight Nacelle and dynamo. The bike comes with a documented binder and DVD detailing the specification and appraisal of this collectors piece.
