1973 T140 Triumph Bonneville 750 Cafe Racer


While the opening bid price may be a bit shocking on this finely built Triumph Bonneville done up in the cafe style, it really is a nice looking motorcycle. I don’t know what it will end up closing at in 6 hours.

I’m going to let you check out the listing for the whole deal, as the owner does a good job in his write-up, but some of the highlights are…

    Re-bored cylinders
    Updated suspension – Progressive in front, Red Wing in back
    Nice Buchanan’s built wheels
    Braced swing-arm
    Most aluminum and stainless bits polished to within an inch of their lives
    Mikuni carbs
    Honest assessment of the minor issues with the bike

I know that I typically rail against “Cafe Racers” that don’t either have clubman bars or clip-ons, but in this case I am making an exception, as the overall look of this bike is so nice, that it doesn’t really matter. The bike is still going to be fun in the corners, and has such a classic look to it that the bars are hardly a deal breaker. Good luck if you are interested in this bike…
