Description 1968 Triumph Bonneville

1968 Triumph
T120R Bonneville - #DU79837
Mod-Rockers is proud to
present this outstanding example of a 1968 Bonneville restored to
factory-correct concourse condition.
The
1968 Bonneville is one of the most desired Triumphs to have with its polished
stainless steel fenders and fantastic colors
This
bike was purchased from the original owner with only 7446 original miles and
had never seen a wrench.
Mod-
Rockers Triumph restorations regularly receive 97-100 point ratings and trophies.
The bike was purchase and restored with the hopes of being Mod–Rocker’s owner personal
bike due to the one owner history, low miles and that it was never monkeyed
with. But college tuition forces its sale
A
properly restored Triumph motorcycle, as in this case, has been completely
disassembled down to every last nut & bolt, and every part has been either painted,
plated, polished, repaired or replaced. New British parts used wherever
possible, current Made-in-UK parts in many cases, and good Made-in-Europe or Asia
parts only when required. This bike has been re-assembled as it came from the
factory and features the following:
Engine
disassembled, cases degreased & blasted, sludge trap cleaned, new bushings,
bearings, pistons, rings, cylinder head rebuilt with new valves guides and valves.
Barnett clutch plates and cables throughout. All new highest quality gaskets
and seals All other internal parts degreased, cleaned & replaced as
necessary.
Many
chrome parts re-plated. The original Dunlop rims are in excellent condition all
hardware plated if needed, all aluminum parts hand polished.
New
exhaust pipes, mufflers and handlebars.
Don
Hutchinson base coat clear coat paint is the correct Hi Fi Scarlet over a gold
base, Silver Sheen Center stripe and gold pin strips. Tank badges were also
repainted according to the originals. I do not put decals on restored bikes
because in my opinion they detract from high quality polished finish. But I
will supply the transfers with location specs should the buyer request them.
-
Original Smiths gauges are in excellent condition Speedometer reflects
pre-restoration original mileage of 7446.
-
A correct seat cover has been fitted, along with the hard-to-find chrome trim,
and the correct Triumph logo.
Electric
components have been replaced or restored, including a proper cloth-wrapped
wiring harness, original Lucas horn & tail lamp assembly, Lucas tail-lamp
switch, horn/dip switch, headlamp switches & bulbs..
All
rubber are either in excellent original condition or have been replaced with
factory-correct reproductions, including new Dunlop K70 tires, rare
"houndstooth" oil lines, footpegs with proper Triumph logo, and Grand
Turismo grips.
 The bike was reassembled according to factory
specs, with nuts & bolts properly oriented, wiring/hoses routed properly,
using John Bull-type rubber & flexible alloy ties throughout. 
There
are relatively few 1968 Triumph Bonnevilles still in existence. Even fewer are
restored to this exacting level of detail. Thank you for looking, and please
ask any and all questions well before auction end so I may reply in time.
