This could well be one of those bikes that turns out to be a lot better than it appears at first glance!
According to the seller, the engine turns over, is original, and the bike has the original gearbox. Not only that, but the panels are actually solid, despite their appearance.
This could make an amazing project. The seller is an experience bike company and give advice on registering this Triumph, as well as supplying you all the paperwork you'll need from them.
