ALL OF THIS EQUALS WELL OVER $1K IF YOU TRIED TO PIECE IT TOGETHER.  A fully restored. unaltered. 100 point showroom Triumph will fetch $10-13K. Cafes are uber popular now (probably why you're still reading this) and this bike has all the bells & whistles. Payment - $500 down payment within 24 hours of successfully winning this auction.  Full payment due and cleared via my bank before the bike will be released to your shipper.  Pick-up of bike must be done at my residence. I do not have the ability to transport the bike. This is one sick Triumph that will hit 100mph+ and has more balls then you're probably ready for 38 year old British steel. It is a blast to ride. no vibrations. solid in turns. and you get mad props from all sorts of riders when they recognize its an original Triumph. I'm ready to start a new project. hopefully a '54-56 Ford Pick-up. DOESN'T LEAK A DROP OF OIL!!!
