Default She lives!

Finally got my '72 Bonnie sorted out. Couple little things left to wrap up but I got her out for about a 5 mile ride the other evening. LOVE IT!!! Hopefully the video link works.

Gosh. You took a bunch of individual elements, none of which I much approve of on a Triumph, and made them look really, really good together. That's a fine bike. And my it does sound nice.

Too cool. Are you going to paint it? If so, what color?

I painted the rear fender and the tank that was on it a metallic gunmetal. Digging the bare look of the tank though. So thinking about shooting the fender black and getting the tank just shot with clear.
