Check out this cool project by one of our very own writers!
This replica of the iconic Triumph motorcycle was made using spare LEGO® parts.
It took 740 LEGO® pieces and a lot of patience to recreate every detail.
If the project gets 10,000 supporters, LEGO® will consider making it an official set.

Compare this image of a US 1970 Bonneville T120 to the LEGO model. This image was used, among others, when designing the replica.
Every effort was made to be as authentic and true to the original as possible, right down to the stitching (seriously!).
Of special note:
- triple tree (how the handlebars turn the front wheel)
- glove box appears when the seat flips up
- the moving chain driving the back wheel (but not enough space for a real motor)
- the iconic long seat
- shock absorbers
And Don’t Forget…
- The handlebars steer
- The throttle turns
- The center stand folds up
- The wheels and chain rotate
- The seat opens
- The kickstart takes some force to push down!
