Price: $3950 OBO, this includes the bike itself as well as all of the original parts pictured (plus a few more boxes of parts not pictured). There is everything here to restore this bike to original stock build, or ride it in its current configuration.

This is my first motorcycle and I'm sad to sell it, but I am a daily commuter from Austin to San Marcos and though I've been riding it about 60 miles each weekday, that's a little too much to ask from this bike. It is really fun to ride (I've even done the ton a couple of times on this bike!), and would make a great weekend hill country rider. It's just not what I need for a daily rider, so I bought a 2012 865cc Bonnie for a smoother commute, and I can can't justify keeping both motos.

Bike comes with a couple thousand dollars in original stock parts - so it has everything you need if you're interested in a project to restore this motorcycle to its original condition. This includes the original stock:
-front and rear chrome fenders
-chrome luggage rack
-upholstered seat
-wiring harness
-break and clutch levers
-headlamp, headlamp housing
-original speedo is on the bike; i have the original tacho also and original instrument housing
-airboxes and sidecovers that say Bonneville 750
-tail lights and turn signals
-kick start lever
-passenger foot pegs

Bike includes a new copy of the Haynes Maintenance Manual and the Triumph Service Manuals
