The movie for Bonneville lovers

"If you love the 60's Bonneville's this movie is for you. The movie covers the Bonneville from its inception in 1959 to the present day Bonnevilles. The movie is all English, it would have been nice to have some commentary from Gene Romero and C.R. Axtell.
The Clint Eastwood movie "Coogan's Bluff". At the end of the movie has a chase scene with Clint on a '67 Bonneville and Don Stroud on a '67 Daytona."
Story of anoraks and their bikes

"Must say as a big fan of Classic Bike that I was very disappointed in this DVD on the bonneville. I expected a good overview of the development of the bonneville, some in depth footage on the mechanicals, and something about how models changed, something about maintenance and ownership and test ride footage.
Instead I got a bunch of middle aged blokes talking about what Bonnies meant to them and how cool it was to now own one. I have no idea what the second half of the DVD included, because I had dropped off before it got that far.
So if you want pretty pictures of a couple of bikes, and some old rockers talking about being nostalgic, this is your DVD.
If you want something to send you off to sleep after a hard day with a bit of Brit wallpaper, then this is highly recommended.
If you want a DVD about the love of british iron, buy BritTown, THAT is an excellent movie.
For the money and effort I feel the guys at Classic Bike could have done the subject a lot more justice."
