PAUL SMITH x Triumph
Triumph has announced the launch of two Limited Edition Triumph Bonneville T100s by Paul Smith.
Paul Smith is one of Britain's pre-eminent designers, having led many design trends over the years. The firm is a globally based enterprise, and it was established in Nottingham in 1970. As part of the launch of the ‘Triumph by Paul Smith’ Autumn/Winter 2005 clothing and accessory collection, Paul Smith customized nine Triumph Bonneville T100’s with one-off paint designs.
These nine individually designed bikes were not intended for sale, but to be used as press pieces and global promotional activity. In response to the overwhelming reaction to these special bikes, Triumph has decided to produce two limited edition Paul Smith designs for sale. Inspired by two of the original customized designs, the “Multi-Union” and “Live Fast” models feature special hand-painted bodywork and mock-croc leather seats.
Fifty of each design will be produced for sale globally and each bike will be individually numbered and authenticated with a certificate, signed by Paul Smith and John Bloor, Triumph’s owner. The two Limited Edition Triumph Bonneville T100s by Paul Smith have a suggested MSRP of $10,999 and can be ordered through any Triumph dealership on a strictly first come, first served basis.
