Description

Complete, atching numbers 1963 Triumph Bonneville T-120. This bike has been restored mechanically and performs without issues. Starts on first orsecond kick. It has been completely gone through and rebuilt andupgraded (12 volt system and electronic ignition and more) by The Shop in Milwaukee, I who specialize in vintage English and Japanese cycle restoration. All work is documented with receipts shown below. There are only a few thousand miles on the bike since the major engine work.
I've stayed in contact with the second owner who bought it in 1966 and learned the bike's story. As you know, hese era bikes had all been modified and customized throughout the years and this early 1963 (DU342) was no exception so ittook time to get itback close to original cosmetically. The framewas nickel plated early on in its life for a very unique look - thepaint is not exact but can be easily taken to the original Alaskan White that was the paintscheme for 1963. It has been kept in my heated office for the past six years during the winter months.
The long time second owner switched to a 1967 Bonneville front end for better performance and thatremains, lthough I will include the (pictured) original '63 front end. The tach cable willseep oil slightly through the top/or bottom during long runs and after many attempts to block the upward stream of oil we concluded a strategically placedragup top the best remedy. One ofthe two bottom front tankmount threaded stems is missing but the tank is well secured at two other mounts points. Just had the annual service done on the bike with a new battery installed and all fresh fluids.
This Bonneville is meant to ride and runs strong. Since it is in beautiful condition it never ceases toattract attention wherever it is parked.
I'm happy toanswer any questions and provide receipts for all service in the past six years.
