The word “anniversary” has been tainted by years of Hallmark-induced guilt tactics. Restore some of the positive vibes to the word by celebrating British motorcycle maker Triumph’s 110th anniversary with this special edition of their classically styled Bonneville T100 ($10,499). Featuring an aluminum silver and khaki green paint scheme, chrome chain guard, cam cover and grab rails, and modernized version of Triumph’s original crest on the Anniversary Edition’s side covers, this is one anniversary you won’t forget–unlike the time you forgot… um… what’s her name’s over there.

A pair of neophytes have made a serious showing at Triumph Motorcycles with this new motorcycle concept. Rookie English designers Roy Norton and Tom Kasher have taken the base of the Triumph Bonneville and drastically revamped it into the Speed Twin, a modern take on a classic bike. What you see above was actually created with a mixture of model board, foam and Automotive Styling Clay. Barbour cloth is used on the seat fabric and grips, with Firestone tires, inverted levers and Thruxton brakes rounding out the package. Keep your eyes peeled for something like this down the road; Triumph officials are quite pleased with the final result.

Even if you don’t know who Steve McQueen is (you must live under a flat rock if you don’t), you’re gonna wanna wrap your legs around this bike. Triumph has unveiled the new Steve McQueen Edition, which pays tribute to the bike that the king of cool rode in the 1963 movie, The Great Escape. The special edition bike boasts the timeless Bonneville T100 base and an army green paint job along with a single seat, luggage rack, and a few other cool black touches. Simply put, this tribute bike oozes coolness. Even the most uncool cat will look cool on this hog.
