This 1974 Triumph T120V Bonneville was reportedly modified for vintage racing under previous ownership circa 2006, and is powered by a 650cc parallel-twin paired with a 5-speed transmission. The bike has been repainted in a blue and silver scheme, and is fitted with a competition-style seat, minimal instrumentation, reverse-cone mufflers, an updated front fork, Sparx electronic ignition, and a front disc brake. This Triumph is registered for the road in Georgia and is now offered by the selling dealer with a clean Georgia title.

The 650cc parallel-twin is fed by dual carburetors featuring velocity stacks and is paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The seller notes that the engine appears to have higher-than-stock compression, and requires increased effort to kickstart. 110 octane fuel is reportedly required. The bike is equipped with Sparx electronic ignition and a solid-state charging system.
