1959 marked the beginning of a cultural explosion and the birth of a new attitude to live life to the full; an attitude that inspired a revolution in music, art, and culture, from rock ’n’ roll to Andy Warhol. This hard-won freedom of expression created the world we live in today and still shapes the culture that surrounds us.
The original, iconic '59 Triumph Bonneville encapsulated this spirit and passion for life, and inspired legions of riders, from movie stars to teenage café racers, and a whole motorcycle movement. It’s a spirit that lives on in every Triumph Modern Classic.
To celebrate 59 years since 1959, Triumph has collaborated with one of the world’s foremost contemporary artists, the London-based bike enthusiast, D*Face, on an incredible new customisation project. Triumph rider D*Face has a style that straddles Street Art, Pop Art and Punk – and his work regularly sells for thousands at the likes of Sotheby’s Christies and Bonhams.
Working closely with the team at the Triumph factory in Hinckley, D*Face will create three unique Spirit of '59 bikes for 2018, each one based on a model from the Bonneville Modern Classics range. All three bikes will be hand-painted by D*Face and feature a range of accessories and custom features from the Triumph range.
For the chance to own one of these iconic bikes, all you need to do is to book a Modern Classic test ride on this website between 07.02.18 and 30.04.18. So don’t miss this unique opportunity to tap into the Spirit of ’59.
