At that price I will sell anyone a perfectly restored 1967 T120R. Heck, I'll even offer a discount if you contact me.

what a joke.

I'll give him $300 for the motor. He can keep the rest.

If I had more money than brains, I'd bid on this bike: CLICK

I fail to see anything that was done to that bike that improved it in any way over stock. Well, other than maybe the Boyer electronic ignition. Sad, the vandalism that's inflicted in the name of "customization". :puke:

Is that a kick-starter I see??? Sheesh, I sure don't miss those days. I still remember trying to get a BSA Victor (450cc) started one cold night in about 1969. Friggen thing would not start and it was just killing me... to the point that I could barely push the starter down anymore. Probably a blessing in disguise, as all the exertion sobered me up to where I remembered about the compression relief. Oy. :lollol:

It depends on what you consider silly I guess. :???:

->THIS<- appears down right foolish (on the seller's behalf).

It looks like somebody got one hell of a good deal!!! Who knows, we may even have the lucky bastard as a new member soon.

TT Cycles has been selling bikes in easily in the 8k range. That one has a bolt-on hardtail and it does not look like the main section was altered (not easy to see in these pix). $10k might be a bit of a stretch, but these days not too far off the mark. TT's last bike didn't sell on Ebay at $8.5k, I'll watch this one.

To each their own but.... what the ..... were they thinking?
(I imagine the owner when ordering the bike :
Yeah, and I want real long forks, and it has to look like those kewl OCC bikes. And solo seat. And a passenger seat. And leather tassles over all etc...

I dunno. Lots of oldsters now have the money to buy a "chopper', and the poor bastages have forgotten what a PIA they are\were. Those old school thangs are selling GOOD.

That's one reason I keep a 1968 bike around. The steady drool of oil on the floor keeps my memory fresh, and makes the Bonnie look better all the time.

To each his own, and I am pretty sure the guy knows what he has got if you read the description, and not just looked at the pics.

Yeah I read the description and couldn't quite get past the "Indian Larry" of british bikes quote.

I have followed the Brit vintage market for the last twenty five years and have seen the increase in value in the classics but can't say that I have see a Triumph chopper worth 10 grand, but your right to each his own. Wish I still had my 1974 Trident, paid $800 for it and it had 4000 original miles, I see those going for 4 to 5K.
