Time Warp Triumph Motorcycle at Charterhouse

A 1981 Triumph Bonneville T140E motorcycle is one of the great lots already entered into the Charterhouse auction of classic cars and motorcycles in February. “It is quite simply amazing. ” Commented Matthew Whitney. “We often come across low mileage vehicles with one lady vicar owners, but in this case, the Triumph has never been registered, has never been on the road and has never been started! “This classic Triumph Bonneville has the 750cc twin engine with front disc brake and is finished in a rare smoky flame two tone metallic paint. Still retaining some of its protective grease covering from when it left the factory for transportation, it represents a truly unique opportunity to acquire a piece of iconic British motorcycling history.The owner, who lives near Crewkerne, has retired and is planning a move to Devon.
