More 1971 Triumph Bonneville restoration project research (all prices courtesy of BritCycle):
721-T74X exhaust pipes – $304.51/pair.
711-709669/9670 mufflers – $486.00/pair.
2x 742-158 clamps – $16.61 ea.
70-9673 “H” connector – $72.28.
2x 742-112 clamps – $16.61 ea.
Plus associated bracketry and hardware, etc if needed. The one item we’ll have difficulty sourcing will be the ‘chip basket’ heatshield; our manufacturer of those long since retired.
Looking like Steve McQueen on a scrambler styled Bonneville costs extra! Britcycle said they might have some scratched and dented options on sale, but those aren’t regular stock (obviously).
Stock(ish) exhaust system:
721-T79 exhaust pipes – $289.02/pair.
What I’d really like to do is form my own pipes, but I don’t have the space, equipment or time to do that. For this project I think I’ll use it as a learning process and get this particular Bonneville cleaned up and mechanically sorted and leave the radical customizations to a future time when I’m loaded, have lots of free time and a much bigger workshop with a full range of tooling in it.
|I think stock is the way I’ll go on exhausts…
As far as seats go, BritCycle has just the sort of thing I’m looking for:
The only thing that might knock it out of contention is if, price and fit-wise, Corbin’s customizable seat is in the ballpark. It says they might fit a ’71 but they’re mainly for ’72 Triumph twins and up.
Quality (made in England) newly manufactured seats specific to the oil in frame 650 twins run at about $500US ($612CAD) – I’m not sure what Britcycle’s go for. The customizable (and probably higher quality) Corbin is $618US ($788CAD). There are cheaper options manufactured in India & China to less exacting standards to consider too. I’ll be keeping that all in mind as I juggle seat options and make a decision.
