Got everything welded up today tomorrow looks like lots of welding and painting. Going to color match the paint and add stop and turns to the bottom rear of the cases!

The real world difference between the efi and carbed Bonnie variants is the availability of after support for engine enhancements. The reliability is generally the same. I have a carbed Bonnie and bought it specifically for the carbs- makes it easier to tune yourself.

The only thing of caution regarding the Scrambler would be the suspension. It's horrendous (all stock Bonnie variants are lacking). The power is plenty enough though nothing like a super bike, which I'm assuming isn't a concern for you. Second to the suspension, is the truly awful seat- it gets damned uncomfortable after a 100 miles or so. Plan on spending about $100 to get the seat modified.

The Pipe is Good !

The old arrow pipes chestnut - comes 'round again and again - still Baffling (te he) to some, (mostly US Triumph dealers who don't read the instructions that come in the Arrow kit.) I have the Instructions - with my pipe that I fitted myself. (simples )

Here is a scan of a bit of it.

I never thought it was that bad until I started taking my girlfriend along for rides and the slightest bumps would bottom us out. I'm a big guy, she's pretty small. So once I felt that with the both of us on, I would notice it more and more when I was riding solo. And yeah, that seat is really bad too. I messed up my tailbone over a year ago (trying a handrail on a bmx bike and took it between the legs, if you wondered) and anything over 25 miles and I'm in pain.
I'll be doing some light engine work and then I think I'll need to take care of the seat and suspension.

Spencer at itsagreatdaytoride com is supposed to be real good at making seat comfortable while retaining the stock appearance.

14000 km on it, show or not it has been used hard. If this one go, another scramb will be done probably in the next year.
But that will be a stripped one, no warm holks, lights and so... Just a mean carb machine
Sounds great, Henry. But I was sad to hear you will be selling your cool Scram for now. I'm sure anything you build will be a beauty.

Now you can fab up a rack just above the exhausts to hold cans of soup; hot & ready to eat as soon as you arrive...!
