This is my 1966 Triumph T120 Bonneville with a 1971 TR6C engine. This is a custom build that I did back in '99. Since the engine was not the original & I really like the older bikes from the teens through the 40's or '50s the most, I went ahead and custom built this one from the ground up, just the way I wanted it. Very little chrome & nothin' fancy.

    Very nice, just right! You'd need that sprung saddle tho!

    I've got a stock burgundy/cream 140V plus other Brits and My Brother-in-law a beautiful Triton he built himself. Ride Safe!

    Thanks Hems303!
    Definitely need the springs on the roads here in PA.
    Pretty comfortable & smooth riding for a rigid though.
    Thanks for the comment!

    Like this bike? That is a serious understatement! I have a 66 Bonneville (or rather have a frame, two wheels, engine, tranny and a few boxes misc totally what I believe is a complete bike) and sir I'm afraid I may have to borrow heavily from your build! This is one of the most gorgeous semi-custom builds I've ever seen. Serious kudos to you!

    Love it!

    Thank you very much LikeTheBikes!
    I really had just as much fun building it, as riding it. There's more than a few hand-made parts on it. You are of course more than welcome to borrow anything you like.
    Hope you have just as much fun with yours & Thanks again!

    Nick you did a really top job, fell in love with as soon as I seen the picture. It should have a nice thump under you enough to let you know your on a BIKE.

    Thanks Zowie!
    That's a very good way to describe the ride, you definitely feel the road but it's really a lot smoother than you what would think it would be for a rigid. And yes, the big bumps do get your attention right quick though.
    Thanks for the comment!

    Thanks JayHow! I did not want to go with the open drag-pipe sound on this bike, a little too sharp & loud for this style. These mufflers are more of a glass-pack type design. They are straight through flow, with packing in the body to eliminate that sharp cracking sound & give them a low deep rumble. Not Harley-like at all, more like the low rumble of a performance sports-car.
    Thanks for the comments!

    I don't remember exactly who made them, but they are made in England reproductions of an original Triumph muffler. I think these came from British-Only. They sell new, used, and new old stock parts for Brit-bikes.
  9. NicksCrustyStuff NicksCrustyStuff, 10 months ago
    I think so, but can't remember right now. It's been awhile since I built this bike. If I can find out what they were called, I'll shoot you back a reply.
    Thanks!
