1970 Triumph Tiger 650

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1970 Triumph Tiger 650 was purchased new from Wilson’s Triumph in Fresno, California and acquired by the selling dealer eight months ago from a friend of his father. The bike is finished in Spring Gold and powered by an air-cooled 650cc parallel twin with a 4-speed transmission. The single Amal carburetor was sleeved in 2014, and a basic tune-up and oil change were performed within the last year. This Tiger is offered with a PDF of service records, narratives from two previous owners, and a clean New Jersey title. The tank and fender are finished in Spring Gold with black striping. Blemishes include chips on the frame, peeling of the factory-style decals, and corrosion on several fasteners. The stock rubber fork boots have been removed. Chrome wire wheels wear older Dunlop K70 tires. Smiths instrumentation consists of a 10,000 RPM tachometer, a 150 MPH speedometer, and a 5-diigt odometer showing approximately 5,200 miles. The headlight shell contains a Lucas ammeter, warning lights, and headlight switch. The air-cooled 650cc parallel twin is paired with 4-speed transmission featuring right-side shifting. Unlike the contemporary twin-carburetor Bonneville, the Tiger 650 used a single Amal carburetor, here resleeved by AH Motorsports in 2014. A tune-up and oil change were reportedly performed within the last year. The side-hinged seat gives access to the battery and oil tank. Minimal service records are available, though narratives from two previous owners will be provided to the new owner.
