Bonhams is holding the Autumn Stafford Sale at the Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show on the 19th and 20th October 2019 at the Staffordshire County Showground, Stafford. Among the lots are two Triumphs, one being a Silver Jubilee Bonneville with very few miles so also almost certainly totally original.
The T140V has only got 75 miles on the clock and has matching engine and frame numbers (GP83977J - so built in June 1977). The side panel bears the 'Limited Edition' wording indicating that it was produced as a UK model. It was purchased new by the late owner via his motorcycle dealership in Jersey, Channel Islands. Unused since 1991, it is offered in need of re-commissioning and would respond well to detailing. Accompanying documentation includes a Triumph Certificate of Ownership, owner's handbook, V5C Registration Certificate, and an expired MoT (1991, 55 miles). The estimated value is from £4,600 to £6,000 but we suspect it will go for more than that.
Also in the sale is a Trophy Trail TR5T (also known as the Adventurer). Again with matching numbers (HJ56642 - July 1973 manufacture) this was built before the Factory occupation. It was previously registered/used overseas and was first registered in the UK in April 1992 and last taxed to the end of October 1999, which is almost certainly when it was last used. Accompanying documentation consists of SORN paperwork, two expired MoTs, and old/current V5C Registration Certificates. This machine is offered for re-commissioning/restoration and sold strictly as viewed. It has an estimated price tag of between £2,800 to £3,800.
