For those anxious to see the final results of the #SalzmotoBonny, the bike made its world premier over on Behind the Moto. Along with sharing the first real images of the completed bike (courtesy of Juan Hernandez), I tell the full arc of the project’s backstory. Looking back, it’s a bit unlikely. I hadn’t bought this bike with thoughts of turning it into a custom.
I’d also been intrigued by all the things the custom community had been doing with Bonnevilles, Scramblers and Thruxtons alike. Although when I bought it, I didn’t really have any plans to customize it. Already two projects deep in the Salzmoto shop, I intended the Bonneville to be my daily runner. It’d serve as a my go-to modern motorcycle that I knew I could depend on while all my vintage resto-mod projects continued rolling forward. I intended the Bonneville to be the bike I more-or-less left alone.
I’m going to tell this story in greater detail here on the Wrench Log, but for now, check out the photos and enjoy the overview over on Behind the Moto.
