its a 1976 t140v ,it was my mates dads bike . my mate told me about a bike in there barn that had been parked since the mid 80s.all he knew was that it is a triumph !
i paid 480 for it,i would of got it for free if the old man had his way (old lady steped in )
still an awesome deal.
the thing everybody on this and other boards always leaves out is how much fun these old beast's are to ride.it alway manages to put a huge grin on my dial :D

Great build. Strange rear tire, but not a bad strange! I'm usually not big on the camel-hump seats, but that is tight-looking! Bet it's actually fairly comfortable, too... all around an A+

I put the velocity stacks on it knowing that there was a rebuild in its future !
The tires are Avon road riders which are 1000 times better than the dry rotted stock ones that where on it !
