A new dress for the Bonnie: Triumph's "Sixty8 "parts range.

"Inspired by a pretty cool year!

Bikes were anarchy. Revolution was in the air. The Rolling Stones were charting with Jumping Jack Flash. Steve McQueen made Bullitt and Triumph made a classic Bonnie that they still talk about today.

The all new range of sixty8 accessories offer something completely different and contemporary for today's Bonneville rider. The selection of interchangeable tank covers help express your personality with the union flag designs in color and monochrome, tartan and flowers to name a few. Add a stylish leather tank detail or fit a leather headlight cover when you park up in town.
For your modern day needs, the stylish contemporary leather panniers look great on the bike and detach as cool satchel bags for use in your personal or professional life. Combine these with an alternative sprocket cover and coloured cam cover to give your bike a true style statement."

"The Aftermath"

"The Generation"

"The Revolver"

Despite Triumphs romantic P.R. talk, lets not forget that 1968 was not entirely a cool year (A U.S. B-52 Stratofortress crashes in Greenland, discharging 4 nuclear bombs, The Tet Offensive begins in Vietnam, then a month later the My Lai massacre occurs, and in April Martin Luther King, Jr. is assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee and riots erupt in major American cities for several days afterward causing American troops kill scores of civilians), but dreary events aside it is still a bunch of kinda-neat stuff to stick on your new Bonnie-despite the somewhat sinister names of the themes...

Still they need to bone up a bit on thier history-or at least hire Advertisement writers older than 25 years old....maybe if it was called the "Sixty9 Range"?...I just had to mention that.
