1979 Triumph Bonneville 750 T140E

Sold 08/03/2012

Rare Find.

In storage for 27 years. Received bike from estate sale. All Original and stock Triumph Bonneville 750. This Triumph has only 1,750 original miles on it. It's like getting an almost new 1979 Triumph in the year 2012. The 1979 Bonneville 750 T-140E was probably the best Triumph Bonneville made. It featured a 5-Speed transmission, electronic ignition and disc brakes front and back.

It runs smooth and strong and shifts perfectly. The 5 speed makes bike good on the Freeways and Highways. After it being in storage so long, I rebuilt the carbs and brakes and filled it with fresh fluids and a battery and it started right up. It's a kick start bike and has a ton of compression (it's almost too hard for me to kick over).

I still have the original title and it's a Wisconsin title. It starts on 1st or 2nd kick. Only thing I think bike will need is new tires, since these are the originals and are 33 years old. (the tires still look good and hold air.. but they ARE 33 years old). I'm 60 years old and just do not have the time for it. Serious inquiries only please.

Sold as is with no warranty.
