Yes, that is right. After three months on consignment we went down to the Triumph shop yesterday and brought Beau home.
We will try and sell it privately since we can ask a lower price without factoring in a commission. Rod, the owner of the shop, let us know that it was a slow summer selling used bikes, but he did great selling new. He chocked it up to a better economy and people being more comfortable purchasing new bikes even if they needed to finance their purchase.
A double edge sword me thinks. I am glad that the economy has picked up, but I wish someone would buy the darn Bonneville.
So, to make it look more authentic, this afternoon we removed the saddle bags, chrome side covers and sissy bar and grab rail kits. They can all be sold on eBay and now Beau looks more like a Bonneville and less like the cruiser the previous owner tried to make it. We did leave on the chrome bar end mirrors and chrome cam covers since we don't have the stock mirrors and putting the stock cam covers on is just too much work.
Troubadour took these pictures in front of the yard this afternoon for advertising purposes and I thought I'd share.
