Description
 
Adding to our classic Triumph selection, we have one of the most collectable of the later bikes, the 1977 Bonneville Silver Jubilee Limited Edition. Based on the 750cc T140V model, it was coded T140J and produced in two batches of 1000 machines plus a futher 400 for international sale. All had a special silver, red, white and blue colour scheme, with bright chrome finished outer engine cases. Our bike comes from the same collection as the Thunderbird 6T we have for sale and is similarly original and well cared-for. Built in August 1977 and registered the following month, it has its factory issued certificate of authenticity and, although we do not have full documentation to back it up, its overall condition is consistent with the indicated 4871 miles. Certainly it has been very lightly used in the last ten years. Overall it remains in very nice cosmetic condition throughout. There are two flaws of note on the paintwork, to the rear mudguard and to the tank r/h side (pictured), but otherwise it is very smart indeed. The bike also rides exceptionally well. It usually starts first prod and settles down to a smooth and quiet tickover. My two colleagues have much experience of big Triumph twins and both pronounced it a fine handling machine with plenty of power. Neither is easily pleased! We will supply the bike with a fresh MOT. Limited edition or not, these late T140s are very appealing bikes and with their 'conventional' left foot gear change make a great introduction to the classic scene for those brought up on Japanese bikes.
