    Still kicking here: riding continuously since the 60’s. Bought a 71 Bonneville in 72- rode it for 30 years and gave it to my son!
    Ridden everything- sold my 2016 Thunderbird Storm last year because it was too heavy. Picked up a 70 Bonneville for a daily ride. Keep tripping over 71’s, even though I’m not a big fan of OIF bikes, so I figured I should try and rebuild one for old times!! Not a mechanic- but learning as I go. Can use some technical help, and moral support!

    the OIF machines got a bad rap. theyre stiffer and handle as well or better than the dryframes.

    but the 70 T120s are still beautiful machines
