Helping keep British Motorcycles on the road for over 30 years - established 1977

July 21st 2010 Update

Orginal e-mail and photo below!


You currently have a photo of my bike from 30 Aug 09 on your web site. It was a photo taken about ten years ago. I have attached a newer bike to
reflect the changes made, small as they may be. I have had the bike 31 years and am finally close to getting it to look like I want !

It is a 1979 T140D. It has Norton gaiters and 65-68 Togas pipes and mufflers with glass-paks. Since the other photo, I have removed all turn
signals, and installed a 1966-67 tail lmap which is much less boxy than the T140 style. I have also had a modified grab rail like a 66-67 installed.
Much plainer, simpler and smoother looking. The bike now sports a Brit Cycle "Thruxton" style seat which is 100 times better than any Corbin.
The Corbin is too big and bulky looking. Yours fits the bike much better in a styling sense.

Love my 1979 Bonnie. You could place this one alongside the first one I sent!

Take care. Love your parts and service. Always pleased with your product and the quality.

Please give this to Gary and Wayne in the parts ordering department. They have both helped me with ordering needed items over time for my bike and I greatly appreciate their help.

Gary & Wayne,

Attached is a photo of my bike from 1995. Nothing has changed. Unchanged mostly in looks. However, it does now sport the Brit Cycle "Thruxton" style solo seat which I love. Ten times better than the Corbin seat (gel?) which I found was very uncomfortable and too wide and overpowering looking.  

I also deleted the tail lamp and installed a 1966-67 T120 tail lamp housing. Much neater, smaller and prettier than the boxy huge T140 late taillight.

I also added the K&N breather filter above the chaincase. Feel free to post this with customer bikes, etc. I have removed turn signals and am having the triangular gusset removed from the stock grab rail (and then re-chromed) for the 1960's look. I also am experimenting with a modified T140V grab rail cut down and shortened to a single U shape. I will get you newer pictures in the future. But you can see the concept of what I have tried to do with its appearance.

Thanks, Jim
