THIS BIKE IS LOCATED 20 MINUTES OUTSIDE OF CLEVELAND OHIO. WE ENCOURAGE PERSONAL INSPECTION OF THIS BIKE.

THIS 1965 TRIUMPH T120C WEST COAST IS AN ORIGINAL MATCHING NUMBER SURVIVOR THAT HAS NOT BEEN CHOPPED, BOBBED OR RE STAMPED LIKE SO MANY. THIS BIKE IS THE WAY IT LEFT TRIUMPH IN 1965 WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SOME NON-ORIGINAL HARDWARE & AN UPDATED IGNITION SYSTEM. THE ENGINE NUMBER, FRAME NUMBER AND CLEAR OHIO TITLE IN OUR NAME ALL MATCH. THE SERIAL NUMBER IS T120CDU14039. THIS IS A GOOD RUNNING RELIABLE TT WITH CORRECT FOLDING FOOTRESTS, TT AIR BOX, 97-1511 COMPETITION MODEL HANDLEBARS, AMAL ALLOY COMPETITION THROTTLE, PARCEL GRID BLANKING PLUGS AND ORIGINAL MADE IN ENGLAND TRIALS UNIVERSAL TIRES (4.00 X 18 REAR & 3.50 X 19 FRONT). THE STAINLESS FENDERS ARE IN VERY NICE CONDITION WITH THE FRONT BEING ORIGINAL AND THE REAR BEING A CORRECT UK MADE REPLACEMENT.  OTHER CORRECT T120C ONLY FEATURES ARE THE SMITHS TACHOMETER ONLY BRACKET & 2:1 RATIO REVERSE SWEEP REV COUNTER WHICH WORKS PERFECTLY. THE BIKE IS CORRECTLY LACKING A TACHOMETER GEARBOX AS THIS DID NOT ARRIVE FOR THE 650 MODELS UNTIL 1966. THE CASE HALF NUMBERS DO MATCH.

BESIDES SOME TOP END REFRESHING THE ENGINE HAS NOT BEEN REBUILT RECENTLY BUT NOT DOES NEED ANYTHING CURRENTLY. IT IS A STRONG RUNNER THAT DOES NOT SMOKE, PING OR RUN TOO HOT. THE CYLINDER AND HEAD ARE BOTH ORIGINAL, THE CYLINDER IS AT .040 OVERSIZE WITH STANDARD T120R 9.5:1 COMPRESSION PISTONS.   
THE ELECTRICS ON THE BIKE HAVE BEEN UPDATED FROM THE ORIGINAL UNRELIABLE LUCAS E.T. IGNTION TO A NEW 2 WIRE STATOR & ROTOR WITH NEW REGULATOR & BOYER ELECTRONIC IGNITION.  IN KEEPING WITH THE FEEL OF AN ORIGINAL TT,  IT STILL HAS NO BATTERY BUT NOW STARTS EASY & IDLES CONFIDENTLY. IT STILL SPORTS ITS ORIGINAL LUCAS KILL BUTTON.

THE ORIGINAL DUNLOP MADE RIMS HAVE HELD UP WELL FOR 50 YEARS. THEY ARE IN VERY NICE CONDITION WITH NO DENTS & RESPECTABLE CHROME. THE SPOKES ARE ORIGINAL CAD PLATING WITH NICKEL NIPPLES, 

IT HAS ORIGINAL COMPETITION FRONT END WITH INTERNAL DAMPENING RODS. THE  ORIGINAL GAS TANK HAS BEEN REPAINTED AND THE INSIDE IS NEAR PERFECT AND UNLINED.

THE EXHAUST PIPES ARE NEW ENGLISH MADE AND CORRECT FOR A WEST COAST T120C. 
 
IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT IN 1965 TRIUMPH PRODUCED 141 T120C / TT MODELS WHEN COMPARED TO 798 IN 1966 AND 900 FOR THE LAST YEAR 1967 IT MAKES IT FAR RARER THAN LATER COMPETITION BONNEVILLES.   

RECENTLY THERE WAS A 1965 TRIUMPH T120C LISTED ON EBAY FOR OVER $20,000. OUR RESERVE IS VERY SENSIBLE AT ABOUT HALF THAT PRICE. THIS IS A WELL SORTED TRIUMPH AND IS READY TO BE ENJOYED.
