I can't beleive it has been 12 years since the Bonnie 2.0 hit the floors. I call it 2.0 in that unlike the T120-T140 based bikes, from 1959 right up to the 1988 harris T140, thwese bikes were a clean sheet design and owing nothing, technology wise to Edward Turner.
I was re-reading the now defunct Moto Retro special new Bonnie issue from autum 2000. The articles made realize how long ago this was. Alan Cathcart wondered if the Bonnie would be the success Hinckley hoped it would be. Other scribes wondered too how the buying public would recieve this new Bonnie.
