1979 Triumph Bonneville Special

by Randal Slater
(Sacramento, CA, USA)

I'm 52 years old, and I've been riding since I was 16. I bought the Triumph Bonneville Special brand new in 1979 at Brooks Cyclery, in San Jose, CA. It has just a little over 24,000 original miles. It's 99% original. I had to change the fuel petcocks because the originals were made of teflon and the lever was made of brass. It came stock with lester mags.

Chain and Sprocket
by: Randal

This bike has so much torque that I have gone through three separate sprockets and chains. The teeth of the rear sprocket would break off, and the chain would stretch out of shape. The last couple of years I haven't had this problem though, whether it is because of a better sprocket and chain or to my increased girth, time will tell.
