It's a Triumph Bonneville, but not as you know it!
One of the country’s biggest Triumph dealers has turned a traditional retro Triumph Bonneville into this hardcore Bonneville Bobber!

Dave Lilley, owner of Jack Lilley Triumph in Ashford, Middlesex, bought a 2005 Bonneville with just 500 miles on the clock as the donor bike, got custom specialists Fenland Choppers to build the frame and got to work on one of the most incredible Triumph specials we’ve yet seen.

The bike was displayed at last weekend’s MCN London Motorcycle Show and features original Triumph Bonneville hubs, 16 inch Harley-Davidson rims with Triumph brake discs and calipers.

To hide the electrics and give the bike its clean and fuss-free look a dummy oil tank was built to hide all the wiring and sensors. Add in a set of aftermarket forks, a distressed brown leather seat, some white wall tyres and a bespoke exhaust system, finish off with some Triumph matt Khaki green paint and you’ve got the Jack Lilley Bonneville Bobber!

If you like the look of the Bobber then it’s also for sale at £15,999 or nearest offer. Contact Jack Lilley on for more details. And if you fancy a Bonneville, don’t forget there are dozens of Triumph’s for sale at Bennetts Free Classifieds!
