RT on ebay again

Yes, another T120 RT is on UK ebay with a reserve of 10,000. Looks in good order generally but have a good pick at it.

Now,where did that bit fall off ?

Thanks for the link. I tried every trick I know and couldn't get it to come up . Found a bunch of other stuff like a set of RT cases. But the only way I got to this listing was through your link.


Thanks to Rusty1 for the item number

genuine as is the bike really a RT or as in unrestored..


It may be an RT but no VIN numbers are stated or shown in Ad. He states bike is on list of AMA bikes yet never got the letter from the AMA stating the number his is on the list.


As far as the Restored vs Original condition the bike has at least been 'gone over' and is not 100% original (at least in my opinion.) what am I questioning:


1 Incorrect Clear Hooter horns are used.


2 Decal placement on side cover & oil tank appear to be a bit to high


3 Made In England Decal on frame was not used from factory


4 Both gold lettering and trim on seat appear to be to nice to be 49 years old. (would love to get a close up of pattern on the seat cover)


As an aside it is also missing the taillight extender used on US bikes manufactured on or after January 1,1970. (not unusual most people took them off)

NOTE I didn't say it wasn't a nice machine just making observations

Stripes on the mudguards are too wide to be factory paint.
