It may be below freezing, but it was sunny enough I was able to pull the bike into the driveway and take a better picture of it with the painted heat shields and rear reservoir shield. Maybe it's because I'm used to seeing it the other way, or maybe I'm being a little OCD and it's because of the small flaws in the paint that I know are there along with knowing the paint doesn't quite match the rest of the black on the bike, but I'm not quite sure what I think of it. At least I know I can always buy a replacement set if I decide I really don't like it.


that bike is beautiful...love the silver bolts on the black pipes...really nice...

I've been riding for nearly 40 years, and have owned dozens of bikes, but I have to admit that the Scrambler, with the Arrow pipe (sans pea-shooter), is the best sounding motorcycle I have ever heard.

Pure bliss!

I'm hoping somebody can help me decide if it's feasible to convert a bonneville to a scrambler, since I've got a line on a cheap one(under $4k), or if I'd be money ahead to just get a scrambler?

Does a scrambler have differnt shocks and forks? I've never ridden one, just the bonnie, and I would want stiffer springs and longer travel and real knobbies

Also, and most improtantly (to my drug addled mind at the moment) does somebody make a left hand replacement exhaust system?

and what about that solo seat with the rack? I've heard they're not that strong? Is there some other solo and aftermarket rack available?

If my questioning seems incoherant, I jst had surgury and still doped up, but I've been thinking of this project for a few months now, and I have time to shop for parts and plan now.

thanks

Yeah, you can Scramble a Bonnie, however Bonnies have the 360 motor.

You could go with something like a Zard 2>1 low pipe exhaust, & then you wouldn't have to change the starboard-side Bonnie side cover.

To me though, a big part of Scrambler charm is that 270 motor. For that reason alone, for me, a Scrambled Bonnie would never satisfy.

I am sort of trying to Scramblerize my Bonneville. In all honesty, besides the engine and a bit more ground clearance, I don't see why the Bonnie can't do everything the Scrambler can.

I think I've posted this pic before, but I'm kinda going for a desert sled/touring/cafe. Probably not pulling it off, but oh well.

Seat Concepts

I just installed a Seat Concepts seat upgrade to my mooorsickle. The fit and finish was supreme and the extra height will get me closer to nirvana. The original find for a seat upgrade was found in this thread and I was impressed enough with my findings that I shipped the seat to them and had it back before the rains quit. I am planning a trip to Panama and am headed to the inaugural Circuit of the Americas GP race in Austin Texas and new that a seat upgrade was in order. I can say that the company knows how to treat a customer and many a aftermarket manufacture-supplier could learn from thier practices..
I will follow up with my findings in the comfort department as miles tick by.

Nice!! I went through the same thing waiting for a used one to show up for almost a year before I just bit the bullet and bought my 2013 in matte graphite. The black looks great, congrats man, you'll love it!
