    My mate is selling his 50th anniversary Bonneville, and has asked me to offer it to you chaps and chapesses first.
    It's a 2011, and number 206 of 650 made. It's only done 2990 miles from new, and consequently is immaculate and rides like new. It has Tangerine dream factory paint. £7995 ono

    Lovely bit, low miles, but priced on the aggressive side when benchmarked to broader market. Your buyer will have to be a bullseye to hit it.

    The limited edition angle won't carry over to most buyers. As a 2011, it is just another Bri-Thai-ish modern classic at the end of the day.

    it sure is lovely, but I have to agree with the others, it seems a lot of money, but give it another ten years when most you see will have the arse cut off them, with so many non standard parts that a mint low mileage example will be worth having and of course by then, the limited edition factor will come into play, imo

    In agreement here. But I have seen them for sale for around the 6500 7000 mark. Got the two tone blue one myself. Really Triumph have made two many special editions to rise in any value for some time to come now.
    Regards

    Excuse my ignorance but what makes it a special edition :worried:

    Is it a different paint job, a bit of bling perhaps and the marketing bods call it a limited edition.

    Any engine, frame, suspension, brakes or engine mods,,,,,only asking :)

    anniversary paint job with limited numbering of 650 made.

    The original 59 bonnie was in these colours, but did not sell very at the time because it was an unpopular paint scheme, now they are worth a few quid

    Is it just me or does anyone else think that all Bonnevilles are overpriced anyway ?
    I mean I wouldn't mind owning one subject to a test ride ( I did have the America at one time ) but I wouldn't pay the money that people are asking.
    I got rid of the America because the handling was crap.

    I can see why the paint scheme wasn't popular.

    I agree with you. I think dealers think they are worth more than they are. But you find some sensible deals out there.
    Regards

    Yes, it was just the silly forks on the America and it needed different shocks and tyres.

    So it was just a paint job then to emulate the early Bonnie which I remember well.

    To me they are not worth a premium price at this moment in time, maybe in 20 years time but then again I don’t think I’d be here to enjoy one :worried::grinning:
