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 blades, a Gixxer, ZXR, Powervalve, 2 or 3 VFRs, FZR 600, ZX6R, and a few others that are probably best forgotten. Last year I had an Aprillia Mille of all things, which followed a '76 Shovelhead which I had done quite a bit of restoration on. The last two where very different V twins, both very uncomfortable for me in totally different ways.

I already know that I have probably made a mistake in the Bonneville that I have bought. It is probably one of the least desirable models being an OIF. And it is in pretty poor condition, but I did want one that I could make quite a difference to.

I intend to do a bit of a blog/vlog of the restoration. Not sure about format yet as still considering the considerable amount of work that needs to be done. Might start it with the a little bit about workshop I have built over the past year or so to keep me comfortable while I am at it.
