For Sale :: Custom 1969 Triumph Bonneville T120R
For sale is a matching numbers 1969 Triumph Bonneville T120R. Here’s your chance to own a classic Meriden twin, produced in arguably one of the best years for the Bonnie. The T120 really earned it’s stripes by winning the Production Isle of Man TT in 1967 and 1969 (by John Hartle and Malcolm Uphill respectively).
Lightly customized and serviced regularly. She fires right up, pulls strong and stops with authority. The tires are nearly new. Most of the rubber bits are brand new. The fenders are stainless, not just painted steel. The seat is perfect and that tank is hand painted.
Many of the modifications are subtle; custom air filters, smaller headlight and billet petcocks, and in the vein of the earlier TT bikes; pipes, more aggressive tires and wider flat track bars. An upgraded Boyer ignition and Tympanium electronic voltage regulator have made this an exceptionally fine running machine. With an odometer displaying just 5,300 miles, this bike has plenty of life left to give.
All modifications, both mechanical and cosmetic, are easily reversible if a new owner wishes to re-restore the bike back to a stock appearance. Asking price includes all the original pieces (minus the tank) to achieve that desire. She rides and handles beautifully and never fails to draw crowd.
Asking $9,500. Located in Los Angeles, CA but the seller will help facilitate shipping arrangements made by a prospective long distance buyer.
