@ Rob:  The Stadium brand goggles were widely worn by British bikers from the 50s >70s. They were a commercial design derived from the WW2 RAF issue Mk VIIIs, surplus examples of which were worn by bikers in the post-war era. Must-haves for a "Bonny" rider!   8)

Right on.  Thanks for the link on the goggles.  I want to find an old Buco style helmet and a pair of the Stadium Goggles for sure.

Here's the new project I just unleashed in the garage.  1972 Bonny barn find.  Took a bit of haggling and sometime to take it off the previous owners hands.  Got it home last friday and have been tearing down since.  Yesterday just opened up the motor and got the block separated.  Going to take some work and coin to get it running again but I have yet to find any major part (aside from the seat and carbs) that will need replacement.  Most of the bits are in great shape for sitting for 25 years.

Looks good and good luck with the restoration.  Is it a T120?
Regards,

Jerry BB.

I have had motorcycles since I was sixteen [in 1978]. I am now 55. Started with Japanese 2 strokes, Then British bikes like Triumph T140E , Norton Commando etc. In 1988 I went to Daytona bike week and bought a 1975 FLH Shovelhead which I shipped back to England and rode in various guises for the next 20 years. I have now owned four Harleys. My current ride being a 2011 Blackline. I also own a 1977 Yamaha TT500 and have a Bobber project  on the go which is a 1971 Triumph T120 in a 1966 frame with bolt on hardtail.
