Some of the best footage from one of the worst and silliest flicks ever produced, yes indeedly, 1977's mega flop, "Viva Kneivel", the only redeeming qualities in this ego driven celluloid shitfight were some pretty decent riding, and the bike propelling the almost King of Snake River Canyon around the various locations featured in this deplorable piece of uber drivel, his wild and wicked, '67 T120TT . . . .
The Bonneville T120TT, according to my now split and grubby copy of 'Bonnie', only ran as a specifically designated model for the last half of 1966 and all of 1967 before it was withdrawn from the lineup coming out of Meriden. Up until that point you ordered the 'TT' option kit and basically had it all assembled, mostly in the States for its role in AMA Flatrack events . . . . the '66.5 and the '67 models were actually available as a complete factory assembled bike, full race cams, high comp slugs, uprated oil flow, substantially lightened crank assembly, better pushrod seals and all the other serious kit that enabled the 650 twin to push out upwards of 50hp at the rear end in final tune . . . . I'm pretty certain that the Yanks were also upgrading them to 750cc to homologate them for the track, whatever, they were serious factory rockets, fragile in many ways but nonetheless ultra successful things in their own right, I'm sure that Edward Turner was justly proud of the ultimate extension of his longlived parallel twin . . . . these days, a rare bird indeed.
