Correct - no Series III Bonnevilles. Looked that up last night.

Have to be cautious here though, or someone will come out of the cracks and say "I put a series III in my Bonne"

I don't know a whole lot about the Series III other than it'* apparently more locked down than the series II. All the more reason to get a series II. Plus, then I can help you with some of the maintenance, especially if you move up by me. I'm starting to enjoy working on the engine as I learn what everything is.

You can do a lot with a series 2. And it really wont take a lot of money to get it going fast.

Don't tell anybody I said this, but I don't really have any grand modification plans...maybe a few things here and there. I'm mostly interested in putting about a trillion miles on it.
