Triumph Classic Motorcycles For Sale  

Triumph TR5 Trophy Replica for sale;

1951; Matching Numbers but the engine number is clearly not an original factory stamping; the machine was sold to its last owner by a prominant dealer in the Netherlands as a TR5 and we have a Dutch registration Document showing it as a Triumph Trophy but we are going to sell the machine as a Replica to be on the safe side because that is what we believe it to be; it is a very pretty bike with a nice Chrome tank and chrome wheels with painted centres also lined in blue; it has clearly been restored very well and has probably not seen much if any use since; it starts very easily, runs and rides extremely well; the engine is lovely, quiet and pulls strongly, the gearbox works as it should and is quiet in operation; the brakes are fine but the clutch does slip a bit and it does not appear to be charging currently; the kick start lever needs asssistnce to return to the top but this is improving with use so is almost certainly down to a tight bush; it will need to be DVLA Registered to use on the roads in the UK but the NOVA has been done and as it has a Dutch Registration document this will be very straihght forward;            £8,650

Triumph Tiger 100 for sale;

1955; Sheen Blue Metallic; Matching Numbers; when the last owner bought the bike it was an older restoration looking good but he wanted to make it as good as possible so another restoration (mainly mechanical) was commissioned which included a full engine rebuild at considerable cost which is well documented as was the original one; it has now covered less than 100 miles so looks fabulous, runs and rides extremely well with a lovely quiet engine (as one would expect) but will require running in; we believe it has covered under 3,000 miles since the original restoration            £8,650


Triumph TRW for sale

1952 frame with a 1953 engine; extremely sweet runner and riding very well indeed; this is a very sweet little machine to ride, it thoroughly impressed me on my 15 or so mile road test, lovely; runs very well with the Concentric Carb but the original Solex is with it; Alternator Stator has been removed but is with it so the lights are currently total loss but with the exception of the charging system all of th electrics work as they should; nice easy to manage lightweight which has a decent turn of speed; it feels as though it may have been geared up a bit as it cruises very happily at 50 to 60mph            £4,995

Triumph 6T Thunderbird for sale;

1963; Matching Numbers; very correct with its pre-unit forks and underslung footrests both fitted for 1963 only; this machine was restored to a very high standard some years ago and has been used extensively since but also very well looked after during that time so it is still very nice throughout; it starts extremely easily and is a real pleasure to ride; we have known this machine for many years having supplied it to its last three owners                   HELD

1970; Matching Numbers; rare genuine TR6 Competition with Club Certificate; comprehensive professional restoration carried out 1,500 miles ago by a well known and respected restorer with Invoices and photo record; this machine not only looks superb, it is fabulous to ride; OK, it's not the original colour for 1970 but it does look so much nicer than the original Green; fitted with high visibility adjustable LED light on the front mudguard but this can easily be removed without leaving any holes in the mudguard due to a clever bracket that was made for the job but it is really bright and great if you want to be seen                            SOLD

Velocette MkVIII KTT for sale;

1949; Road Registered with current V5c; both engine & frame numbers were supplied together in January 1949 to MacIntyre Brothers of Belfast; this is a fabulous machine; it took part in 2009 Coupes Moto Legende and is featured on the front cover of the programme; various pre-race prep sheets for events competed in and around Europe in the 2000's; German Historic Racing 'Fahrzeugpass'; we have resisted to urge to give this machine a detail clean because in our opinion it looks fabulous in its 'working clothes' but naturally we would be delighted to detail it for a buyer if required; this machine is definately not just an ornament in that it starts very easily, runs and rides superbly and is extremely quick; really lovely in every way and I so want to keep it...........                HELD
