    Being a born again and again biker, I have just bought a 1972 Bonneville to restore when I retire this year!!! I have had many, many bikes. Including a Triton for £90 in 1983, a much loved orange original Speed Triple which I kept for 3 years and a Daytona 955i around 4 years ago. I have had 3...
