First pics after transformation...

Picked up a 2009 SE few months back, perfect condition. Decided to change it a bit, it's my 3rd Bonnie, first was a - Bonnie Black cafe'd, - second one, Bonnie T100, I scrambled, - this one...I don't know what it is, wanted something different, ha!

Couple of months scribbling and wrenching and a few hundred dollars in parts (give or take couple hundred) and this is where I'm at.

Still deciding on exhaust and seat type. First bike had dual Predators, second I fitted Zard Cross 2-1.
The arrow exhaust on this one sounds great but looks a bit long. Any input? Opinions?

I won't bore you with the parts list, it's 10 pages...

Before and after.

Thatís a beauty!

I agree that the exhausts are just a bit too long. Dual predators, extending to the rear axle, would look great.

Thanks Folsom,

I agree. Iím looking at the Predator shorty slip-ons. Not sure if theyíll work with the headers though. Iím not even sure if they are stock Triumph SE headers or Arrow headers. Anyoneís input would be welcome...I have a message into British Customs, waiting for a reply.

What about the Tec Sprint. I do not know if they sell the ends separately but their Clubman system is a copy of the Arrow. Their Clubman and Sprint headers look the same.

Thanks Loco.

Just messaged them too.

FYI; the predator shortys do not fit, as per Sean at British Customs. Their Predator Pro for SE will fit, a little longer than their shortys but shorter than the Arrow. If that makes sense...

Now is the time to buy these gems. I sold mine because they got too top heavy but wow the deals on the 790/865s are tremendous. Nice work.

Thanks Vitesse,

Yeah, picked it up for a very fair price. The PO took REALLY good care of it. No scratches, dents or issues, at all.
And since I didn’t really want a cafe style bike...was able to sell allot of parts on eBay to fund new parts.

Thanks Hedgepig,

Was thinking so. Header pipes are stainless, not the normal Oem chrome.
Probably gonna tear it down and put it up on eBay. No clue what itís worth.

This looks great!
How wide is that front tire? Did you have to do a wide fork kit, like what Down & Out sells, in order to fit it?
