Our 1968 Triumph T120R Bonneville restoration
As many in the British bike community know, our founder Don Hutchinson experienced some health challenges toward the end of last year which waylaid him for the better part of 3 months.
We’re thrilled, of course, with his recovery and return. Our shop is finally back to normal.
While Hutch was away, we did everything we could to keep things moving exactly as he would want. One project which made it’s way to the top of our list was the restoration of this fine 1968 Triumph T120R Bonneville.
This bike began as a complete core, found in a shed, covered with dirt and rot. We completely disassembled the bike, powder-coated all the black parts, re-chromed the chrome parts, cad plated the proper parts, and replaced a number of components.
Most of the parts are original, including all chrome parts and sheet metal. Look for our special touches, such as the original white plastic front brake cable router, bakelite Champion spark plug caps, and restored Lucas ammeter.
Needless to say, the paint job is one of our finer efforts. The Hi-Fi Scarlet and Silver Sheen with hand-applied gold pinstripes is just outstanding (if we say so ourselves).
We’re proud to say the result is pretty typical of our shop, and we look forward to the owner of this bike enjoying it for years to come.
