1976 Triumph T140 750 tidy, MOT ready to ride. For Sale
|1976 Triumph Bonneville|
Very nice usable condition T140 which has been restored some years ago. It's not over restored to better than new condition, this is a bike to ride and enjoy rather than trailer to shows and keep in the living room.
Matching frame and engine number showing at least most of it is original.
Frame appears to have been very well painted (or possibly powder coated) some years ago, there is no corrosion or rust and it has a good deep shine. Similarly the tank is free of scratches and dents and has obviously been resprayed to a high standard at some time in the past.
The chrome on the mudguards and headlight is less than perfect with a little pitting. If you really wanted to you could either have them re-chromed or get new items, but I have left them as they are as it adds a little character and stops it looking over restored.
Both the rev counter and speedo have a mind of there own, waving frantically to indicate you are moving, but not very useful for telling you the actual speed. To be fair the speedo is accurate to within 5mph but waves around a bit like they all do. I have added a digital speedo to the bars driven neatly from the rear wheel so I know the proper speed. I was tempted to just replace the clocks, but it seems a shame as the ones fitted whilst being hopelessly inaccurate are the correct original clocks for this year of Bonnie so I assume they are the ones it left the factory with.
Both wheels have after market alloy rims and stainless steel spokes which saves a lot of cleaning.
The gearing is higher than standard making it a relaxed cruiser at 60 to 65 mph.
Freshly serviced with 20w50 semi synthetic oil, valves set, clutch adjusted and carbs balanced.
It will be supplied with spare service gaskets for the oil filter and valve covers as I have plenty.
There are probably loads of incorrect parts on this bike, I'm not a Triumph expert and I do not claim to know exactly which washer was fitted to which bolt in which year. The bike is for riding. It's 40 years old, things get changed over time.
It leaks a little oil just to let you know it's British but only a few drops, not a massive puddle every time you stop. It seems to get the same advisory every year for slight fluctuation in brake pressure on the brake roller test, but I can only just feel in on the road so I've left the discs alone. New disc are available from many outlets at a decent price if it really bothers you.
First registered 21/01/1976 and recognised as a Historic vehicle on the V5C so no road tax to pay. There is talk of making them MOT exempt as well, but who knows if this will happen. The current MOT runs out 10/10/2018.
It starts easily, pulls well and the clutch, brakes, electrics, etc all work as they should.
