Hey everyone, Im new to the forum and new to triumphs. Currently my ride is a 73 honda cb350 twin (mostly stock) it was my fathers bike when he was younger and I pulled it out of the shed and brought it back to life. Its also my first bike and I think its been a great starter bike. Recently I've been getting the itch to do longer roadtrips and the power of the 350 has me questioning riding on the highway etc.. I think the thruxton has the look and style im after. I found a 04 with around 3100 miles on it. the bike is in excellent condition and has some extras.
Center Stand (I'll probably remove this)
Lucas Altette Horn
Retro Tank Badges and Knee Pads
Lucas style tail light and self cancelling turn signals
chrome chain guard
Bar end Mirror
Also added Isle of man badges & emblems
trickle charge connection
From what I've read on the forum people have said not to factor in the additional upgrades to much in the overall price of the bike. so when it comes down to it the bike is in excellent shape but its still 7yrs old. The guy had it listed at 5,600 and He told me his bottom line is 5,400 he's also throwing in the original parts (not sure if this matters or not) is this a good deal? Sorry if I'm duplicating a post from elsewhere. I'm sure I'll love the bike even If I end up paying a bit more then I should, but I'm not in any rush to get one. Any advice or guidance here is greatly appreciated.
