Greetings,

As stated in an earlier post I ran across one of these a little while back. Not sure which model but was told a 1974.

Thinking about it it might be a 1973 Commando Roadster. I'll go look at it again next week. Bike is complete with 2600 miles. Yup. 2600 miles. Sat for 20 years so it would be a ground up take several years type of thing.

Give me some feedback! I can buy it cheap too!

Agreed! I owned a couple of Triumph Bonnevilles in my day.

I have two things I am pondering.

1) Buy it a do nothing to it but resale in another 10 years. Comes with extra frame and parts also.

2) Make it new and keep it. 2 or 3 year project bike.

Strongly considering option one. I can pick it up cheap and the parts are worth four times the price. Bike is completly stock too! Nothing changed or altered in any way, shape or form.

I'll get some pictures next week. This, I believe, is the bike.

yes it would but..it gets real expensive. 20 years of sitting would mean a complete rebuild of engine and bike.

Thinking hard on this one. With the money spent I could just pick up a new Triumph Daytona 675!
