I have another question for Bonnie experts, especially Grandpaul.

Since my Bonnie is a '67, it should have the ignition switch mounted in the left hand side panel. Mine has the later side panel, without a hole for the switch. Looking at the 1967 and 1968 Parts Books, I see that the '67 side panel has two lugs at the top. My side panel has two rubber grommets and mounts on two pins on the rear frame rail and a screwed knob at the top and front.

My question is: is the '67 rear frame (or subframe) different to the later subframes? If so, are there additional brackets on the rear frame to mount the side panel which is correct for that year? And if there are additional or different brackets/mounting points, could someone post some photos, please?

I could leave the existing arrangement as is, but I have a new '67 wiring loom so I might as well get the correct side panel.

Dave

I'd have to go back and compare details, they did change from certain years to subsequent years.

You can always just drill a hole in the sidecover you have, if it's not a concours 100 point bike...

Thanks Grandpaul, I will wait to hear back from you at your leisure but will explore making a hole in the existing side cover.
