Steve McQueen Honored With Special Triumph Bonneville Heuer

bonnevilleheuertagheuermonacoMcQueen was a renowned Triumph enthusiast and also wore a Heuer Monaco watch in the 1970 Le Mans classic movie where he was racing a Porsche 917k. Because the Triumph Bonneville and TAG Heuer Monaco are both timeless masterpieces, celebrating their respective 50th and 40th anniversaries this year, both companies have joined forces to create a one-of-a-kind Bonneville Heuer motorcycle. As you can see. this one-of-a-kind commemorative bike is painted up in the classic Gulf Oil blue and orange scheme and will be used for promotional purposes. If you like the bike as much as I do, perhaps a phone call, an email, a letter toyour local Triumph dealer will convince the factory to put it in (limited) production.

    Cyril, Why make it in (Limited) production? Does everthing have to be out of the reach of the regular working guy? Why not make it a small premium for the paint and let everyone that wants one have a chance at getting it. I like Steve McQueen and the Lemans movie and even though it’s not the Same as in those days of the late 60’s and 70’s I still would love to go to Lemans. You have probably seen alot of the Races there. Maybe you should write a Book on your life in France and then in the USA.

    Steve McQueen honored? Steve McQueen’s name exploited for lucre. That’s OK. Just say what it is.

    “… this one-of-a-kind commemorative bike …”

    No…… we had the same conversation over HD’s XR replica-NOT.

    Although this Triumph DOHC motor is a technology improvement over Ed Turner’s classic twin, it sure would have been more “McQueen-like” to put together a smaller, lighter version of their big-crank-jurnal, push-rod twin of the 1980’s, with that production 4-Valve Westlake head.

    Oh ya, and put it in a Track-mater or Chaney frame….. 🙂

    Now THAT they could legitimately call a “one-of-a-kind.”
