On August 23rd Works Engineering raffled off a 1971 Triumph Bonneville at the Brand X Motorcycle Show in Brooklyn, NY. The procedes of the raffle were for Juliet Dostalek, a bartender from Brooklyn who was severely injured on her motorcycle back in May.

Well, my friend Steve won the bike and having no desire to ever ride, passed it on to the most Triumph obsessed person he knew. In lieu of Steve making a profit on the bike I'm making another donation to help Juliet out.

I'll have more picts of the bike soon but here's a video from its maiden spin.
