I couldn't find an ex-LAPD MotoGuzzi so I settled for the Bonneville Black.

Dude, an ex-LAPD Guzzi would be bad ass.

Like this one?


The bike belongs to a good friend. It's an LAPD Eldo with a few changes. The bike has been a work in progress for a few years. The engine has that freight train torque like a good Guzzi should.

Why did I chose the Triumph I did?
I narrowed my choice down to a T100 or a Scrambler. I didn't want cast wheels and a primary mission for the bike is two-up so an upright seating position and full, flat seat was key. From there I shopped until I found the best deal on either a T100 or Scrambler. A good deal on a good Scrambler came up first.

I own a Street Triple, so one day I was at the dealers and saw this beautiful Bonny Std. Black, I just fail in love. I didn't buy it for a while because I wanted to see what everyone was saying about it. So I browsed this forum for a while instead of the Street Triple forum. I watched every You Tube Video there was, more then once. I just couldn't get it out of my head. So when I was at the dealers to get my 12K mile check up on the Striple, I bought the Bonny. Then I had to figure out how to get two bikes home. The Bonny has become my primary ride, and I'm still in love.
