A follow up to yesterday’s post, I was able to have a conversation with the owner today. He’s selling off his collection due to health issues and this was his daily ride for a few years. We talked bikes and our history of riding in the city for a while and got a viewing scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. He’s selling for cheap but wants to avoid flippers.
If all goes well tomorrow, I should have a good condition triumph trophy 1200 for a great price. Not exactly a steal (great condition bikes go for 2-3k max) but definitely in my <1500$ budget.
I’ve already got plans to chop up the rashed side plastics and turn this into a properly buttoned up standard.
