1963 Triumph Bonneville Modified A great running and titled 1963 Triumph Bonneville – the first year for the unit construction engine. But this bike has been heavily updated over the years and the engine is not correct either. NO RESERVE AUCTION

See it start and running on YouTube: https://youtu.be/2cCKeFw4C6s  The ENGINE CASE HAS BEEN RE-STAMPED. I’ve been told that this was fairly common practice with custom builds, but because of engine number problem, it’s not a good candidate for a authentic restoration. It has a clean title, licensed and tagged in State of Iowa. The frame number is correct and unmodified. It’s a good running rider. I think it is a perfect bike for someone who wants to do whatever they want without the guilt of modifying a matching numbers Triumph. Make a bobber or a café racer out of it. Bolt on a hard tail or put a café racer fairing on it. But you won’t have to invest in an engine rebuild; just make it your own by bolting on what you want or enjoy it the way it is – just ride it. Everything on it is Triumph. The disc brake works great – much better than any drum brake. But it’s a Triumph front end – not a Japanese or Harley front end. You have the advantage of added stopping power but with the correct brand. I think it’s a T140 front end. I ride it regularly, but I bought a 64 Bonneville so I’m letting this one go. It’s a really fun bike to ride if you don’t mind everyone telling you about when “they owned one just like it.” Here’s the summary: 650 cc engine, stock internally (not bored over) Additional engine breathers were added, the bike seems to like them so I kept them, but they’re a bit unseemly and probably could/should be removed. Has a hidden spin-on engine filter, tucked behind side cover. (see picture) Runs great, starts easily, shifts smoothly. Stops better than vintage Triumph bikes. Kill switch added for safety. Lights and gauges all work Unmodified frame, nothing is cut. Original tank mounting points are there. The red gas tank pictured is an Oil in Frame tank, and mounts with a very simple clamp. A proper fitting, bare metal, reproduction gas tank is available to the new owner for an additional fee. (See photos with alternate gas tank, if you don’t want it, I’ll list it separately, but it fits perfectly.) Mid 70s T140 (I think) front end New Clutch with less than 500 miles on it New Jugs and cylinders – about 1,500 miles Boyer Mark IV Electronic Ignition (the newest version) Late model Amal Carbs, much more reliable than older Amals – tuned/jetted for this bike. No need to get gas on your finger by “tickling the carbs.” Speedometer and odometer work too, (reliable reproduction Smith gauges) I intended on building a 63 Bonneville Tribute/Reproduction – keeping the disc brake, but swapping out the tank and fenders and painting them the 63 Bonneville’s arctic white with gold striped fenders. I have a very detailed list of parts required to accomplish this from Baxter Cycle in Iowa. If you want to go this route, I’ll provide the list to you. You would have a bike that looks like a 1963 Bonneville, but has more reliable ignition, carbs and much safer stopping power. And for a lot less money. Build it how you want, over time, without the guilt of modifying a matching numbers bike. You can arrange for it to be shipped or you can pick it up. Uship and shipping through Fastenal are good options. You arrange shipping. I’ll attach it to a pallet if required by shipping company.
Title in hand – should be very simple transaction. Cash or PayPal.
