Ken Morris and his 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R

Congratulations to Ken Morris of Alta Loma for winning Bike of the Month with his 1970 Triumph Bonneville T120R. This was Ken's second time to our meet. In June he tied for third and today he easily took First place.
Ken has owned this bike for over 10 years. In March 2013 he started the one year restoration project.
Ken meticulously sourced every part to ensure it was as close to original as possible. It took him 9 months and four tries to find the correct wiring loom.
The paint was done my Don Hutchinson in Massachusetts who is nationally known for his factory correct Triumph painting.
Ken has ridden and raced Motocross and offroad bikes all his life.
Thanks Ken for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our July Gallery.
