Time for one of the jewels in my collection to go. I acquired this original paint T120 some years ago and resisted the impulse to clean/polish/restore/etc it. From what I can determine- I am the third owner. First owner was a gentleman named J. Bishop from Muncy Pa he bought two T120's new - named one of them "Lightning" this one "Thunder" and was told had it's name painted on the oil tank and tool cover. That may be why it's most of the paint is rubbed off. Can't explain the use of rubbing compound on the rest of it. 2nd owner rode this bike approx 1500 a year and installed a 5-speed cluster to make it more rideable ( I have the original cluster as well). It's numbers match (engine/frame/gearbox - see dating certificate) and the carbs are correct 204's. Other than the air cleaners and cigarette lighter (left bottom of nacelle) appears to be a very correct bike. Seat probably has been recovered - possibly new mufflers somewhere along the line. It starts runs rides shifts and is a nice cruiser. Look closely at the pics and ask questions. Inspection prior to auction close encouraged. Bikes of this nature do not surface for sale very often. It is offered "as-is/where-is" FOB Middletown Ohio 45042. A $1000 non-refundable down payment via paypal due within 24 hours of auction close balance to be paid within 7 days of auction close in a manner acceptable to both buyer and seller. Crating not available but seller will provide several candidate shipper contact numbers (all shipping detail responsibility of buyer). I cannot attest the mileage shown is correct however most likely is.
