$$$ Value of '66/'67 T120R Bitsa
I just met a new friend who wants to sell his '66/'67 Bitsa T120R and I told him I'd try to get an approximate value. He's an auto mechanic but not a motorcycle guy.
Bike in very good condition but clearly a Bitsa: '66 Frame T120R DU38669, '67 Engine T120R DU59413; Nicely painted tank in dark-medium blue with luggage carrier on top, pre-60's speedo (small), custom gauge mount with unusual oil pressure gauge, Headlight bucket w/ammeter looks period, '70's front brakes, new levers & handlebar, looks like '70's seat.
Engine converted to single Amal 930 with T120R cylinder head and adapter intake manifold feeding both intakes from one carb. Never have seen this intake manifold before. Similar to the one on my T100C, but new.
Didn't get a pic, but I can if necessary.
TIA for the help,
