How many incarnations of the Bobber have there been?

Sounds like a dumb question but I read about peeps buying an '18 bobber in '17 etc. I presume this is ordering a bike for delivery in '18 or were there 2 x '17 models?

I haven't had a drink yet

Just two as I understand it... obviously not including the various colour options. So youíve got the Bobberís and the Bobber Blacks

Thanks Mike, that's what I thought. Just that a number of posts last year talked about buying a 2018 Bobber before the Black was announced.

Interesting point, once I ordered my Bobber Black (last Saturday), I was given some sales gumph from salesman and looking at it, it says:

Bonneville Bobber £10,600
Bonneville Bobber Quarter Mile £12,500 (don't know anything about this one)
Bonneville Bobber Old School £12,750 (again not sure about this one, aren't they all old school?)
Bonneville Bobber Black £11,650

The sales thing he gave me says effective from 19th Feb 2018.

Quarter Mile has the clipons and some other Triumph Accessories.
Old School has the ape hangers and some other Triumph accessories.

Both are just the reg 17 Bobber with their accessories applied.

Hmmm technically that makes it vintage, think you need to join the pipe and slippers board too
