A history behind the bonneville in the 67bonnie.gif and 67bonnie1.gif. I bought this bike, barely running in 1987, Z bars, 6 inch slugs in the forks. Towed it home. the top end had a hellatious noise, Took it off, the exhaust guide was seized and was running up and down in the head. In 1991 I started the restoration in erenst. Stripped all paint off, re painted everything (yup the tank with matching helmet too) (learned alot about painting) Rebuilt everything, including engine. The bike is still not fully sorted as I am resleeving the Monoblocs to ensure a consistent idle. The chromeplating was done by a shop that I will never return to. Still need the rear fender (its chopped). Fun to ride, although I can never get to a destination without at least one person stopping me to talk about the bike. Living in a small city allows this luxury. Andrew Wolf
