Triumph Bonneville - Pre- 85 Post 78 years

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by bluecraka, Oct 29, 2006.

  1. Guys,

    Just hoping some of you can give a good argument on whether this bike is good enough or is crap and plagued with problems.
    The reason I ask this is my old man has always like these bikes and after 20years of not riding has the urge to get a bike, but he wants it to be a Bonneville. His intended use with the bike, is not for a every day commute but rather for a weekend ride etc.
    Do these bike require a lot of maintenance ?
    Is the maintenance difficult?
    Are part hard to come buy and or expensive ?
