Rare 1951 German Made Triumph TWN BDG 125 *** DELIVERY $500 see below for conditions Yes. German made. The Triumph motorcycles started in England in 1885 to the present day by a German gentleman. He also made them in Germany from 1886 to 1957. The German models went by several different names. In 1951 the name went back to Triumph or TWN “Triumph Werke Nuremburg” This is a model BDG. The BDG’s came as 250 cc and 125cc. This is a 125 One way to tell a German Triumph from an English one: The German has the line on top of the word Triumph and the English has the line under the name. Google TWN BDG 125 for a complete history. These bikes are very popular in Germany and parts are readily available through several different sites. There are also Triumph TWN clubs on line. This bike started as a complete bike minus the carburetor which has been added. It went through a complete nut and bolt restoration. including a complete motor and transmission rebuild. frame powder coating. and tank and fenders paint. There is lots of re-chroming. The only draw-back is I dropped the headlight housing and chipped the paint. Some touch-up paint would fix it fairly well. It is 100% all original except for the custom made leather seat. There is a new OEM seat included. There is a new wiring harness. all new cables. and a new battery. Things left to do is install new wiring harness. hook up cables (all three. Front brake. clutch and accelerator) all are included. It is mostly together with only a few new parts needed: Rear axle. (I used a vintage BSA axle. ) It doesn’t work as it should. Rubber grips on the rear passenger pegs. Tank Knee Pad bracket (new knee pads included) Tires. I put new tires but they are not vintage correct. They are the correct size 2. 75x19 but they are too wide and hit the fender in places. They cost about $40 each and the correct tires are about $140 each. Wheel bearings. I put in new ones but they are not the right king. I ordered a new set from Germany but they sent me wheel bearings for a 250. not the 125cc. A few small odds and ends. They may be in the pile of parts pictured. The bike is in the Los Angeles area. CALL Stuart 909 239-6199 I listed it a couple of months ago and said I’d like to get about $6. 00 in its present condition. (see my old ad 281545591678 and also see more pictures) The bidding only went to $5. 00. I have since done a lot of work and bought over $500 in parts. I’m told that it should bring about $10. 00 when finished. This is a low reserve auction but I would sell for a bid of $6. 00 now. The buyer of this 1951 Triumph will probably have one of the rarest and most unique Triumphs in the Country. It comes with an owners manual and a parts booklet. Sold with a California DMV Bill-of-Sale *** Delivery anywhere in the lower 48 states for $500 (add $200 to the NY Burrows) Overseas buyers are welcome
