This beauty was sent in by motorcycle writer Hamish Cooper.  The build story on his 1966 Triumph Bonneville desert sled is in the June issue of the UK magazine Classic Bike.

Since these photos were taken he’s fitted a set of Hagon shocks to the bike, replacing the saggy old Girlings. The old Triumph, which started out as an abandoned ’70s chopper, is racking up the miles and looks like a lot of fun.  Thanks Hamish!
What’s your idea of the best classic desert sled?  Post your thoughts to comments!
