My brother got a 1970 Triumph Bonneville this summer and it has started me jonesing for an old English bike again. When he got his it was set up as a chopper and was pretty ugly. After a bunch of work he has transformed it into a bobber style bike and looks pretty good now. I don’t know if I would go that route or not, I would probably keep it more stock. I’ve been watching e-bay and Craig’s List a lot recently for something that would work for me. I even had a deal going for a 67 BSA Spitfire but the seller backed out.
So with all that said are there any classic or vintage bike owners that have any advice, caveats or “forget about it sonny, run away”'s to pass on?
p.s. I already have a bike I like but my brothers Triumph just makes me think I’m missing something with my 1975 Honda CB500T.
