For the last three months I've spent all my spare time getting my 1975 Triumph Bonneville back on the road.
Watch the video to see a step-by-step engine rebuild and see the refreshed Bonnie get kicked into life for the first time (eventually).

The video brought back memories about my 1976 T140V which I bought new. Never a problem with starting as I always stood at the side of the bike so that my whole weight went down on the lever!!
I was very familiar with the internals as I was forever having to work on it ( it was my main transport), the chrome dropped of the rear springs in the first few months, the seems under the petrol tank developed a leak, it ate bulbs, head gaskets, clutch bearings and eventually the main bearings. I reckon it had been put together from the parts bin, but in spite of all the problems, it was a great bike when it ran, wonderful in snow and I loved it.

I know you tiredness
Good video, Ive got a '77 Silver Jubilee and it doesn't like starting too much either. Thinking of re-building and cleaning the engine, should help it run better and not cut out at the lights.
