Alittle about me.

I am a life long resident of Massachusetts and have owned a 1965 T120r since I bought it as a basket case in 1970. I had no prior bike experience with motorcycles at the time. I mananged with the help of a Triumph owning friend to get it back together and running. I did no real restoration work on the bike at the time.
The bike was put in storage for a while it gathered a bit of rust here, there and everwhere. So this year, I have stripped the bike down and plan to at least a partial restoration. My work on the bike has shown me that some of the parts are not of a 1965 vintage and some of the nuts and bolts are not English. I have a couple of questions I can't wait to ask.
Iam married and am a retired Chef. I love Jamaica and have been visiting Negril for the last 37 years each February.

I'll post a pic of the bike before I started to work on it.

Welcome! Your Bonnie sounds like a great bike to restore. Lots of nostalgia!

The easiest way is to remote host your images using Flickr or Photobucket or some such. Then link to this site using the image button above.
