69 Triumph Bonneville
1969 Triumph Bonneville (T120) VIN T120rbc12801 (frame and engine #s match), neither the engine nor the transmission have ever been worked on as to my knowledge. The primary cases are in exceptional condition. It has 23,221 original miles. I fell in love with this bike when I first saw it and talked a friend of mine into selling it to me back in July of 1981 I have always stored it in a my garage. I have only taken it to Triumph specialist for servicing (usually valve adjustment, clean carbs and carb kits). I had the clutch and rear tire replaced in 1991. I think I put a new chain on it around 1997. I bought a new battery 4 months ago. Because it has sat for most of the past 5 years the carbs need cleaning as it starts right up, but runs a little rough. When it is in regular use - it always starts on the first or second kick. Other than a yellow paint job, squishy handlebar grips, mufflers, a bobbed rear fender (w/HD taillight license as!
sembly) and, it is in original condition. It has original year of manufacture black California license plate. The frame, forks and swing arm have never been repainted. The wiring has never been messed with and there are no electrical problems. The speedometer works, but the tachometer doesnt. The foot pegs are original rubber (the rear ones have hardly any wear on the Triumph wording). The tank has no dents but is missing rubber knee pads. The seat is original and looks great but its bottom steel plate has a weld strengthening a crack. The forks are a little mushy probably need fluid change and topping-off). The right fork accordion rubber is torn and needs to be replaced. I have the passenger grip bar, chain guard, and a second bobbed front fender (with stations) off the bike.
