Bonnie is finished

theoldtrout

Overdrive!
A few of you asked me to post pictures of my 1971 Bonneville when it is finished so here it is. This project has kept me in my workshop most nights! For the interested this is a T120R made in January 1971 for the USA market restored by me back to factory condition.

Is it a 650 Angela? It looks immaculate (sp), absolutely superb, can't even see an oil leak underneath. (you did say Triumph?....;) ) Seriously very well done, you must be feeling well proud.:)

Oooo can I be your fwiend :) That's wery pwitty. Pleeeeese can I be your fwiend.

Had a similar age one myself around '79-80, another one is on my shopping list someday.
 
Thats a great looking triumph i have had a few triumph,s first one was a tiger cub did have a triumph 500 speed twin great machine don,t know how long it took you but you must be well pleased WELL DONE lovely to see
 
That's a lovely machine...

I've often played with the idea of swapping my Triple for the new Triumph Scrambler.
 
Beautiful restoration job Angela, always fancied a Triumph, just never got round to it!
A motorcycle thread sounds like a great idea!!!
 
Now, there is something terribly Fruedian (?) about women who 'act out of the box', so to speak. Women soldiers or pilots, VLBC navigators (I met one at a party once) and, rarest of all, women engineers. Claire Barratt is one of my all time pin ups - an English rose who is a dab hand with a gas axe or an angle ginder.

Now, we have something even more special. A woman who is not twenty-two years old, has never been on a reality programme and who knows the difference between Max Planc and two, short planks. And now, she demonstrates an inate understanding of engineering and the physical skills to re-engineer a work of art! :bowdown:

Marry me Angela - I think I love you! :D

Beautiful, beautiful work, a real labour of love and it shows. :)

Roger.

Cor! That's the closest thing I've had to a Valentines card! Thanks for your kind comments.

An absolute beauty :) . Spot on !.
You just can't beat the sound of a big brit parallel twin on the prowl - you just don't hear that noise anymore ....makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up :)

Have a 58 A10 myself ...not as nice as yours however :(
 
I'm a tad envious :( but have no right to be, I bet you've worked really hard to get (or keep) your machine in all it's glory.
Angela I'm most impressed.
As Rage Rover says.. we don't get to hear them so often now. I don't suppose you can copy a soundbite for saddo's like myself.. mind you my pc speakers probably wouldn't do it justice.
