No Reserve: 1969 Triumph Bonneville T120

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

This 1969 Triumph Bonneville T120 was refurbished by the previous owner in Colorado just prior to the seller’s purchase two years ago. The 650cc parallel twin and 4-speed transmission were overhauled by Vintage Twins of Arvada, who also fitted new Amal Concentric carburetors, Boyer electronic ignition, .020″ over pistons, and more detailed in the listing, with additional contributions by The Bonneville Shop in Lousville, Colorado. This Bonneville is offered with records of the refurbishment and a clean Colorado title in the seller’s name.

Vintage twins rebuilt the front shock assemblies and fitted new seals. Dunlop Gold Seal K70 tires were also mounted on the 19″ front and 18″ rear spoked wheels. Braking is handled by a twin leading shoe drum at the front and a single expanding drum at the rear.
