1965 Triumph Bonneville Restoration Project

Still tearing apart the old Triumph, trying to get this bike back into good condition. A little history on the bike, My father bought this bike back in 1990. He paid $500 for the bike in running condition. My father passed away in 1995 and after that time the bike sat in my grandfathers barn for ~15 years.

When I turned 22 I gained an interest in restoring the bike. I took the tins off it got them painted, bought new pipes for the bike, went through the engine to get it running again. Since then it's been nothing but problems. Tins do not fit correctly, bolting is stripped or lost... it's a lot of fun.
