Ooops, thought this was an area for technical questions
I'm Gary, I live in Marysville, WA. I bought my 1979 Thiumph Bonneville Special T140D about 8 years ago thinking I would make a cafe racer out of it. It had been in a storage unit for some time. Once I knew what I had I decided to bring it back to stock and not cafe it. With the help of e-bay, swap meets, etc I found all the parts I needed. It's more a preservation than a restoration. I used it off and on for several years but in 2010 it was starting to blow too much oil so it was parked. Last Sept I pulled the engine out and had a local shop totally rebuild it. Now transmission is not right.
