wakeup said:Syd was part of the push for the development of the Thruxton Bonneville (T120R) in the late 60s. A bike which was possibly (almost!) the best 650 ever.wakeup
I have a lot of respect for the unit Bonneville and T100, but their success was as much due to money, development and sheer numbers which was never available to Norton.
The trophy for making the biggest impact simply due to the design of the machinery itself will always have to go to the featherbed Norton Manx and Dominators, the SS Dominators have to be the best British twins overall.
