Triumph Bonneville 750 T140V 1976
UK Registered Bike not an Import
I have decided to sell my T140V as my knee will not withstand kicking the bike over anymore.
I bought this 2 years ago off a friend who had been restoring it for many years in his garage below are some of the work done to this classic bike when I bought it from him it had only done 50 miles from the rebuild since then I have done under 200 miles.
New parts that have been fitted in the last two years or 200 miles since I have owned it.
New Amal concentric carbs and hoses, complete headlight, indicators, mirrors, exhaust headers, seat with comfort pad for rider, Hagon rear shocks, clock brackets, Oil pressure gauge. Spark plugs, Air filters, speedo drive.
New parts fitted by my friend in the last 8 years
Fork Stanchions and gaiters, Acront alloy rims wider than normal with stainless one gauge thicker spokes, wheel bearings, front and rear tyres, brake pads, Battery, front master cylinder, chain and sprockets, Electronic ignition.
Complete engine rebuild by (Dave Boden who was the mechanic at Bennetts Atherstone)
The head now has Aluminium push rod tubes, Thruxton cams supplied by Les Williams, new valve guides fitted by Arthur Jakeman, 3 Valve Oil Pump, up rated clutch springs etc.
The frame has been powder coated and an oil cooler fitted it has stainless front and rear mudguards and Rocket Gold Star exhausts fitted. Lockheed calipers, disc’s skimmed and drilled,
This bike will start first or second kick and rides like a dream and sounds fantastic with the Goldstar exhausts it gets a lot of attention at bike meets or when riding in traffic.
Historic registered so no tax or MOT
I will be sad to see it go but needs must
The only bad point is there’s a very small amount of surface rust on the Goldstar exhausts, but I didn’t want to change these as they sound so good.
Sorry I don’t want another bike in part exchange
Thanks for viewing
