Another vote for the '01. They are pretty bulletproof. There were two recalls. One for the clutch cable, and one for the fuel fittings on the tank. Make sure they have been sorted before buying. Then have fun!

I would like to take it for a test ride first. But the weather in Pittsburgh is awful lately.

I left the salesperson my name and number and told him to call me when I could ride it.


thanks for the responses.

I looked at the photo's and the clutch cable looks like the original, ready to snap one. The recall replacement cable has a curved tube at the lever end.

you're good to go with the bike. Talk them down to $4K though.
I thought the price was touch bit steep too, but the Triumph dealer here is always higher than normal too.

I had an '01 myself, very solid machine, and very fun to ride. I liked that style of bodywork the best of any so far.

Looks like it has the solo seat, bar ends, and fly screen already installed. They would be difficult to find for the roulette green.

just an FYI in '02 they bumped up the Hp a little and did the engine/bodywork update.

good luck!
