1967 T120R with '68 motor (I'm not crazy about that part):

- Boyer electronics
- new Amal carbs
- new brakes, tires

What is the T120R's characteristics?
What should I be on the lookout for when I inspect it?

I'd be careful on the numbers....motor and frame numbers should match your paperwork. A sharp cop will catch a non matching motor, and could possibly be a problem.....other than that, just look for the usual stuff....pride of workmanship, etc.

Hey Rick, nice to hear from you again!

You shouldn't have any problems with non matching frame and engine numbers here since we don't have titles here. Look at the vin numbers to be sure they haven't been tampered with and make sure both numbers are clean. I heard that lots of bikes here were stolen back in the 70's and heard lots of stories.


If it has a Boyer, check to make sure it has the "Big" three phase alternator, otherwise, plan on spending a few hundreds more on one. My bike can't idle with the lights on since it has a Boyer, so i'm switching back to good ol' points. Look at the wiring, it probably sucks. Don't be affraid to negociate the price since the cost of new parts adds up FAST!

If you need parts, advice or service, you could go to Montreal Cycle on Wellington or, my favorite, Moto Lemoyne on the South shore.

And there is this one, 1966. 7 000 miles. New tires...
It's a 4 hour drive but, hey, I'm up for it...
I believe I can snag it for 3000 US$
I really dig the cheaper one. The chromed tail section is a nice touch if you are going to run it. If not, you could off the tail section for some $$ on ebay.

I think 3700 is too much for a non numbers matching bike. You should be able to pick up a real clean runner for about 3k US numbers matching.

One other thing to look into would be to look for a BSA. I've noted that you can get more bike for the $$ if you go the BSA route. I've seen some REAL nice ones go for just over 2k on ebay.

I've got a 66 BSA Hornet myself (650), and I love it. Plus it pulls WAY harder than my old 650 Bonneville did.
