    I am on my mission to convert my Bonneville T120 to a Bonneville with Scrambler genes.
    I will post my progress here: please feel free to give advice

    1. V&H high exhaust and the remove of the X-cat

    Are you going for a single seat look?

    I have two options, one is the Slammer seat (not yet arrived) with the black givi rack and a givi trekker topbox for touring

    The other is this

    I will change the front wheel to a 19", this to get more tyre options. A set of Alpina Raggi with black rims and hub will arrive in about 6 weeks. I guess a set of Bridgestone trail wings will be mounted on them.

    Is the seat in the pic something you already own - it would be nice to see it on your bike ?

    Got me a set of the Ohlins for the Thruxton R.

    My biggest concern is to adapt them to fit the Bonneville. The swing arm is very different so I will have to machine out other parts for the bottom fixing point. Handed them over to a local workshop, not many of those around anymore. Hope to get them ready before the weekend, the man that
    runs the workshop used to race BSA 500 and the G50 , a good man so
    he jumped on this project with a grin :)

    That is looking good Henry - some excellent work there.
    I wondered what car you had under the cover in the first set of pictures - looks like the "R" out of TVR :cool::cool:

    A decent Scrambler Tank.

    The paint on my T120 is lovely imo. But a little to nice for a Scrambler, so I bought a Matt grey one. I am considering a custom paint on it maybe a two color option painted like the old Scrambler's.
    I painted my old 900 scrambler with the color old English white from the Austin 3000 car. Turned out great, but will go darker this time.

    I will use the fuel pump from the old and then put the cranberry silver in a box. Waiting for the time to put it back to original o_O

    Scrambler 900, sold 2015. Covered a trip to the Alps, true Germany, Austria
    and the Dolomite in Italy. Should have kept it...3
