Bud Ekins was a top motorcross and desert racer, Hollywood stuntman, and one of Steve McQueen’s closest friends and riding partners - a genuine motorcycle legend. Triumph’s biggest 1960’s American dealer, based in Sherman Oaks California, Bud Ekins’ name is celebrated by Triumph with the iconic Bonneville T120, a perfect balance of style, performance, authenticity and 1200cc Bonneville twin engine power.
With its beautiful Californian inspired paint scheme, and range of dedicated special details and touches, this unique special edition T120 Bonneville motorcycle is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the enthusiasm, attitude, and dedication of one of the world’s greatest motorcycling icons.
Unique Special Edition Paint Scheme
Distinctive two-colour fuel tank with hand-painted coach lining, heritage Triumph logo in black, and unique California ‘flying globe’ tank logo, together with white front mudguard and gloss black side panels - both with Bud Ekins branding - add to the incredible style of this beautiful motorcycle.
Adding to the uniqueness of this Special Edition, the classic Triumph logo is presented on the tank for the first time in the modern era. First seen in 1934, this hasn’t been featured on a Triumph production model for almost thirty years, making this bike a real collector’s item.
Evoking classic racing of yesteryear, the Monza-style flip-up cap is an evocative feature that tops the fuel tank in style.
Snowdonia white-finished mudguard with its exclusive ‘Sherman Oaks – California’ logo matches perfectly with the unique T120 Bud Ekins Edition fuel tank.
Distinctive high intensity LED indicators* feature a satin black finish and robust rubber mounting for reliability and high visibility. * Market specific regulations apply
