I live in Bucks County, PA north of Philadelphia. Last year bought a 1979 T140D Bonneville Special for my 50th birthday. Love the bike but it doesn't like to come home - the wife calls it my one way bike. First serious ride of the season today and it started making a new clanking sound in lower gears but not in neutral or with the clutch pulled in. Going to take the problem to the technical forum and see if anyone can shed light into what may be the problem. Hoping I can get this to be a reliable bike.
