1979 Triumph Bonneville 750 T140E with 10k miles. Unrestored but in very good condition and runs great! Clean title in my name with matching numbers.

Some of the notable things I did in prep for the riding season: new tires, new ignition coils, new plug wires, new plugs, new battery. All of the rubber for the foot pegs and center stand replaced. New exhaust pipes and mufflers (slight blueing in pipes near the head)

The carbs were entirely went through and rejetted to European jet specs and slides (the E models had smaller jetting due to EPA regulations at the time).

Flaws with the bike include a few drips of oil after being ran to temp. There is a hairline crack in the left side case that gets a small trickle of oil when it warms up. Due to this *small* leak, I keep it in its center stand so that oil won't drip into the muffler header pipe area. There is a small leak in one of the valve spindle / rod ends, and a leak from the front push rod tube. At one time someone spilled brake fluid and there is an area.on the right handle bar control that is missing paint.

Otherwise it's in great shape and ready to roll for the season. It's unrestored but in great shape and has been maintained and kept in a garage it's entire life. If I missed anything feel free to message me.

Cash only, local pickup.
