TRIUMPH - T140
1978 Triumph T140E 750 Bonneville Unregistered US Import Classic Restoration Project
This well-respected, and very much sought-after Tax & MOT exempt 1978 Triumph T140E 750 Bonneville with nice matching numbers has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the climate is far kinder to motorcycles than ours.
As you can see it has a few parts missing – side panels & air filters and r/h mirror being the most obvious. It has stood a while, so the battery is flat, paintwork is faded, seat cover is perished, master cylinders are not working.
This is the actual bike you are bidding on – Not library pictures from 45 years ago & it is every bit as nice as it looks here.....A great find!
The engine is cosmetically clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compression BUT BEST OF ALL when we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it fresh fuel, gave it a few prods it fires, starts, runs & revs but it is obvious the carbs need attention.
We are advetising this bike as a trade clearance project so make us an offer and get started!
