Triumph Bonneville memorial plaque

In celebration of the Triumph Bonneville factory, Meriden, Warwickshire.

This plaque which stands at the end of Bonneville Drive, Meriden, Warwickshire, was commissioned by Meriden Council to commemorate the ‘Triumph’ factory where the ‘Triumph Bonneville Motorcycle’, was manufactured. The factory has gone, on the site is a small housing estate.
In the corner of the picture we see the wax model being burned out by pouring molten metal into the mould. (lost wax process) I made the original in clay, casting the clay into a plaster of paris mould, them made a wax from this.
I think this is a composite of tin and nickle to avoid rusting, I had it powder coated in a shade of aluminium.
