LOOK BID BUY!!!It's that time of year when a man needs something to tinker with in the garage. SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION. This much sought after tax exempt 1973 Triumph T140V 750 Bonneville British classic with matching numbers has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to motorcycles than ours. This and the fact it's only showing 7023 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks. PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you can see this bike is very nearly complete missing just the r/h mirror. battery. front indicators & tail lense. The bike has obviously stood a while so the carburetors are stuck. master cylinder isn't working. wheel rims are pitted & l/h silencer is rotten at the end. BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS. The bike is every bit as solid as it looks here. The wheels are straight. Forks & yokes look straight. Mudguards are both solid. Headlight & hangers are good. Instruments & switches look good. Fuel tank & side panels are faded but tank is squeaky clean inside. Exhaust headers are ok as is the l/h silencer. Seat base is in very good condition throughout. The engine is cosmetically clean. it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compressionbut we haven't run it up.
