1974 Triumph Bonneville T-120V Hybrid
by John Moorman
The 1974 T-120V Triumph Bonneville was built in very low numbers. It was a very odd year in Triumph Bonneville history. Angry workers, hearing of the impending shutdown of the Triumph plant at Meriden, shut it down themselves in October 1973 just as production was being switched from 1973 T-120 models to making 1974 T-120s. This forced Triumph to build a �hybrid� Bonneville consisting of the T-120 650cc cylinders on top of the T-140 transmission and body. So the 1974V Bonneville is a 650cc with a 5-speed transmission and front disk brake. The paint is Purple over Cold White and the fenders were chromed & only the tank was painted. Very rare !
