Hello all-

First-time poster. The site has been a wealth of knowledge for me over the last few days. Thanks.

I am looking at an '05 Thruxton with 12,600 Miles. This is my first motorcycle, let alone Triumph, and I wanted to the group's input on what I should be looking for during a pre-buy inspection. Here's the link to the sale if anyone is interested.

Thanks in advance! Best to all,

Todd

The deal is dead!

Three days on Craigslist and it sold. I had planned to buy today if it appeared as advertised.

I'm still open to any pre-buy pointers you all may have.

Thanks!

First possibly major service interval is at 12,000 miles: Valve clearances should be checked, and it's some work to adjust them if they need it. The going price seems to be $300-$600, if you don't or can't do it yourself.

So for this bike, among the usual things, I would have asked if that's been done, and by whom.
