Recent Purchase

Here is a recent purchase that a freind and myself bought, The Previouse owner bought these bike in the 70's.
It seems he didnt do much with them but stored them badly, I got two of them running so far. all have titles, also got three loads of parts. all are low milage the most is 9,000 miles the least is 1,192 but the bike was taken apart for some reason and stored poorly.

The package consisted of 5 Bonnivilles 2 t150s 1 t160 a 1971 BSA a75vr and a 1972 yamaha tx750
Here are some pics will post more later

Thanks for looking

Nice load! Don't worry too much about "stored them badly". Triumphs tend to be quite resilient.

The TX750 was introduced in 73 by Yamaha. If the A75 is a 5- speed it is a fairly rare bike.

The Rocket III is a significantly rare bike.

Very nice stash of survivors!

Welcome to the forum.

Looks like a half-dozen opportunities to win the "most improved" contest over the next decade...
