Triumph Other description

Old school Triumph chopper.   Vintage bike,  not a reproduction.  Originally built in the 70's

* For those of you who have seen this bike on here before advertised with no title...  I finally got a title for it.  Its MN issue, clear and ready to go.   Has current registration through Feb of 2014.

 

1962 Triumph frame. (titled as a '62)

Engine is a 500cc TRW military unit.  1957 model year.    Remanufactured  Canadian army surplus engine. First started about 2 and a half years ago.  Has about 100 miles on it now.

4-speed transmission.   Leaks a little oil.  but its an old triumph and its a chopper so that's to be expected.

Nice, vintage,  Invader wheels.    old school tires.   No weather cracking.  Almost like new. 

Super Cool triangular headlights!

Vintage Amal carb

The metallic green color (called money) doesn't show well in the pics... there is more sparkle to it in person.   Fresh paint job 3 years ago.

 

Runs and drives nice. Surprisingly comfortable.

Front end recently cleaned, adjusted and lubed.   Great in town cruiser  ( not sure I would take it out on the interstate... )

Starts on the first kick if you do it right.

Charging system is hooked up and working.  6 volt, positive ground electrical system.

Cool bike!!!   There is not another one like it out there.  Gets tons of attention out on the road.

 

100% period correct 70's chopper with the exception of the modern ignition switch, brake light switch, and sealed battery.  Other than that its all genuine old school awesomeness!

I would recommend getting the pipes chromed to make it look even cooler.   Other than that ride it and enjoy it as is.

 

Please feel free to ask questions. I'll try to answer the best I can.

 

I have some room to store it for a while if the buyer is unable to pick it up right away.  I do ask that payment is taken care of first however.

Recall for 2011-2012 Triumph Sprint GT, Tiger 800, Tiger 800XC Optional Top Box

Thu, 11 Aug 2011 00:00:00 -0700

Triumph issued a recall for optional accessory top boxes for the 2011-2012 Sprint GT sport tourer and the Tiger 800 and 800XC dual sports. According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the top box locking handle is missing a clip lip to ensure a  proper lock on the rear rack. Without this clip, the locking mechanism may not be secure, potentially leading to the top box falling off of the motorcycle.

Speed Triple gets new boots

Tue, 18 May 2010 00:00:00 -0700

Since the spark plug incident last month resulting in the premature demise of the factory fitted Metzlers, I’ve had to find some new rubber for the Speed Triple. With the Triumph’s punchy engine Commuting 1800 miles a month on motorways and city roads, I need something that will cover decent miles but also be up for some frequent country lane antics. With the BT023’s Bridgestone claim longer life with solid wet weather performance for touring riders whilst satisfying the demands of the keen sport bike riders.
