My dad and I inherited a 1983 Triumph Bonneville STX. It had sat in a garage for the last twenty years, and been dropped and forgotten, more or less.
I am eager to learn about these strange beasts from England and shall with your help.

Nothing big now. I don't have much love for the bike yet, so don't know how much I want to keep it, but am considering a functional restoration, possible cafe conversion, or just a quick sale.

Restoration plans are in the works, but I'm open to the possibility of parting the bike out due to ballooning costs- just found a large crack running through the case!
Is it ever worth it to do the functional restoration? I know parting a bike out can be worth it, but it's always a shame, especially when the bike was only 1 of 100 imported to my country!
