    Triumph T140V 1976 ~ Project ~ What's It Worth?

    I've spent the day helping a mate clear out some lockups.

    In amongst all the shite is his old Bonnie and he wants shot asap. I have absolutely no idea what it's worth so need helping here please, can anybody out there give me an idea of where to even start on a value

    The bike was a runner and had a chair on it with leading links. 15 years ago he took it off the road to take the chair off and put it back to standard and it stayed in his lock up ever since ~ everything is there plus a few extras, here follow a load of photos.......................

    My neighbour has a very tidy T140 for sale - on the road MOT etc - he’s struggling to get the £5k he wants - been offered £4 - 4.5k...

    I reckon £2.5 -3k for that....

    Isn’t somebody bringing a bonnie too?

    In that condition and with all the work required to get it up and running decently,I’d say about £1200-£1500 tops.

    The bike is worth more with matching numbers.
    As a guide I paid £2300 for a 1970 BSA A65, similar condition I suppose, and I heard the engine running when I collected it.

    I think anything from £1500 to £2500 on eBay.

    They stopped producing right hand side gearchange T140's in August 75 but this is registered as 14th January 76

    Do you know if this is a matching numbers bike ?

    It’s probably worth more if it’s broken, all the parts cleaned up and then punted out on eBay if the numbers don’t match but otherwise somewhere between £1.5-2k depending on how lucky he is.

    Give those leading links a good scrub, spray them gloss black and on their own they’re probably going to fetch about £400 on eBay so it depends on how lazy he is

    It's worth fuck all, but if you give me £50 I'll take it off your hands.

    Can't say fairer than that.
