Old (me) Triumph owner

I happened upon your site and decided to join - the last Bonnie I bought in 1983 (a '78 T140) sits forlornly in the basement and I need encoragement to get it running again. I've owned two other Triumphs in the 1960's, a '59 Tiger Cub and a '59 Bonneville. And, of course, there was an assortment of BSA's, rice burners and Harley's.

My '78 is not stock as it has a German set of aluminum barrels/steel liners (I have the specs somewhere) and the exhaust has been replaced with an earlier design using baloney mufflers. It has a brown Triumph seat cover and remnants of what looks to be candy red paint on the inside of the side covers (it was repainted a Mercedes tan). Anybody know if a '78 Bonnie came stock with red paint and a brown seat as a choice? I'd like to return the color combo to stock. Thanks.
