Gordo's Trumpet Longbike

1969 Bonneville purchased new in 69 was turned into a chopper in the early 70's. 
a short while later the original owner had it in his driveway where someone backed into and mash fucked it up a bit.  From there he rolled it into the garage where it sat for 40 plus years until Gordo spotted it and eventually worked out a deal and rolled out with it for a song.   It was a super well done  for the times ,  nothing outrageous and for the most part clean and well . 
I straightened out the collision damage, upgraded and rewired the electrical system, replaced the ignition with a modern electronic setup and rebuilt the carbs.   Was a blast to ride.
