For sale as my classic car and bike collection has been moving in a different direction. I have 6 bikes and do not ride them so selling 2. I have not ridden this bike. The other bike I am selling is 1973 Norton Commando 850 unrestored and perfect condition with 5220 miles and never ridden.
The TR5T model is the last of the Triumph 500cc twin.
100% correct except it has a new old stock speedo showing 18 miles and when it was changed i was told it had done 3,200 miles.
In 1973 they built 2,155 and in 1974 they built 929. this is one of the last 100 produced.

Just in case you are not familiar with the way they sell cars and bikes in the usa but from October/November of a year they start sell models dated the next year. So whereas this was built in 1973 in the USA it was called a 1974.
As those familiar with the TR5T will know bikes sold in the UK in 1973 were called Trophy Trails and in 1974 were called Adventurers. But the TR5T that were exported were called Trophy Trails for both model years of 1973 and 1974.
Also for further information the 1973 had Yellow tanks and 1974 had Red tanks.
I have been meaning to get the bike registered of a while and now due to the coronavirus the dvla are not working on any v5c applications so i will make the application as soon as they start normal working. So a deposit can hold the bike until i receive the V5C with registration number.
