    Not an old bike, but every once in a while I see something like this pop up. It’s a 2019 Triumph T-100, retro styled to look like a Bonney from the 60’s, but it’s 900cc, water cooled, and fuel injected, really just a great bike.
    The guy that bought it, hadn’t owned a motorcycle in 40 years, he only rode it less than 300 miles and said he didn’t enjoy it as much as he remembered. So he’s selling it for $2200 less than the list price and that’s before all of the taxes and dealer prep, shipping charges etc. And he’s throwing in a top of the line helmet that must’ve cost him $800. Man it’s a hell of a deal, I wish I could pull it off.

    These were originally supposed to be BSA's, but after their demise, became Triumph's. Engine canted forward like the Rocket 3.

    His wife told him to sell it. He didn’t want to sell it. Set reserve at very high price. Tells wifey, “ gosh dear my bike didn’t sell, but I tried”. Everybody’s Happy, ish.

    Amazing how these sellers want you to believe they have done an extensive list of things to the bike.........longer the list it must be good............

    Greased head bearings..........not changed..............that's worth $300 at least
    Wheels bearings pulled and repacked........not new............that's worth $400 at least
    NEW fork oill.......wow that;s a bonus right there, that's another $300.........and new bulbs in the gauges.............that's worth $200 at least

    best one is they have pulled the timing chain, cleaned and lubed................. then adjusted it, twice.........There's $500

    Kinda confused now because if some egoes to such detail to list all these so called incidentals as a list of things done??????? why hasn't the gaskets for the head removal to get at the timing chain been listed????? or even stating the motor has been removed.............

    Why???? because its all shit...........the gauges are off a TX 500.....Speedo reads 120MPH and Rev-counter is 8.5 red line......Must have been hard to find a low mileage one in good nick........$500 added to price

    At least the motor looks clean............lol
