Ran When Parked

1968 Triumph Bonneville - This bike has made the rounds in magazines etc. but I missed it's sale on eBay. It's a pretty original bike in concept and has a bunch of "cost is no object" parts.
These photos are probably the best I've ever seen of it from a details perspective. I'd be curious to know if it was actually run a Bonneville. Given the parts I bet it's a screamer.
