Re­stored Bon­nevilles don’t come any bet­ter than this su­perb Aubergine and Alaskan White Amer­i­can-mar­ket model. The work of Keith Martin of Big D Cy­cles in Dal­las, Texas, the ma­chine was re­stored from a ‘rusty roller’ bought from the es­tate of a Texas col­lec­tor, along with a large quan­tity of NOS parts. Martin, who worked for Big D’s orig­i­nal owner, the leg­endary Jack Wil­son of ‘Texas Cee-gar’ fame, be­came a part­ner in the busi­ness be­fore ac­quir­ing the Big D trade name fol­low­ing Wil­son’s death.

Re­stored us­ing as many of the bike’s orig­i­nal parts as pos­si­ble and cor­rectly date-coded, NOS, 1967 parts (with the ex­cep­tion of the ex­haust, tyres, seat cover and han­dle­bars, which are top qual­ity re­pro­duc­tions) this has to be one of the best Bon­nevilles to come up for sale re­cently. It has only cov­ered around 100 test miles since the restora­tion was com­pleted in 2014, car­ries a UK regis­tra­tion and is es­ti­mated to make £8000-14,000.
