1977 Triumph Bonneville T140V
Owner: Joe C. of Fredericksburg, VA
COMMENTS: Customer purchased this bike new in 1977 though he was originally interested in buying a Bultaco Pursang.  Taken in by a slick Bonneville poster at the bike shop, Joe purchased the Triumph & rode it for a while.  After a serious accident in the late 70s requiring a front end rebuild, the bike was put away for many years.  Getting it back on the road about 10 years ago, a shop decided to remove the air choke/air valve, a popular but unnecessary thing to do.  The bike sat again for a long while until Joe met us at a vintage bike show & decided to have us get his bike running again.  Services provided:  install Pazon electronic ignition, clean & rebuild 2 Amal carburetors with new slides, replace deteriorating black fuel line (suspected to be automotive vacuum hose) with clear fuel line, new AGM sealed maintenance free battery and drive chain.  Service took 5 hours of labor + parts.

From Joe via email on April 13, 2011: Man, the bike rides and drives great for 34 years old. I feel like I'm 25 again. lol  Thanks for all you have done so far. I like the story and pictures. Thanks Again.
