They didn't. I, and many others, did. I've never had, or heard of, any problems.

:0461: Every fastener S/S (since 94) and any other item available in S/S is fitted to my Bonnie. The Tiger is easy, plastic and barely any uncoated metal or chrome plated components requiring regular replacement due to rust. H & S regarding chemicals means todays chrome is little more than decorative standard, no longer hard wearing like original Meriden Triumph plated parts.

Boys in the club who've done a proper restoration job, had all the undamaged original fasteners re-plated.

My Bonnie has always been ungaraged and for riding (was often my only transport 24/7) so I have no interest in 100% show standard. I have little/no time for maintenance or cleaning so lots of practical (but discreet) low maintenance & reliability mods have been done . quite a long list.


Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

That's a bit too nice to leave for the binmen to collect.  :038:

Actually they won't touch the bin there . it has to be put on the boundary, so half on the public path and half in the bike bay entrance. They get confused enough :138: with the fact I still put out a conventional bin, we were given weighted raffia type bags (1x brown & 1x green) to use because being up a bank from the road they wouldn't allow us wheelie bins, trouble is on a windy day you see bags blowing down the road (but not my dustbin - has a slab of stone in the bottom :005: ).
