Norman Hyde has launched his latest range of accessories for Bonnevilles aimed at the post 1999 touring models.
This GT range is designed to re-create the ‘grand tourers’ of the 1960’s and will significantly increase comfort and carrying capacity for the big twin.
Hyde has developed a carry rack set in conjunction with Italian luggage specialists Givi.
This consists of a classic chrome rear carrier rack that can be supplied with a spacious 45-litre top case (sufficient to store two full face helmets).
Also included are side pannier racks in black, complete with 21-litre cases and indicator stems. All are designed to work using the Monokey system, which means that a single key not only locks the cases shut but also secures them to the racks. The taller Givi screen, which is lightly tinted, reduces windblast and provides some protection.
The ‘UK’ bars are a similar shape to those fitted on UK bikes in the 1960s-1980s. They are lower than the originals, helping the rider to stay out of the wind.
Handling and stability can be smoothed out with IKON rear shocks. These bikes have a reputation for being light at the front end, so the 7-way adjustable steering damper can help to make the bike hold its line on long bumpy corners or when crossing lines or cracks.
Meanwhile the addition of a 5-gallon alloy tank offers a vastly improved range over the original, and gives the machine a whole new appearance.
Stopping power can be significantly improved by fitting the Hyde front brake conversion, designed in conjunction with AP Lockheed.
Prices range from £33.49 for the low bars to £821.33 for the five gallon tank. Call 01926 497375 for more details.
