Very Original, matching number, 1970 Bonneville T120R. The bike has been in storage for approximately four decades, and in my possession for the last twenty years. I believe the 18,055 miles shown on the odometer were all acquired up until 1983/84 (as shown on the Oklahoma registration sticker still on the fork!) Paint is original astral red and silver, and the original DOT sticker is still present on the frame. Last month, I registered it for the road, put new tires, battery, and oil in the bike. Valves have been checked for clearance and carburetors cleaned. It starts easily and runs well. Although the next owner could restore it, I believe this is a wonderful example of a true survivor, and would be more purposeful as the measuring stick to what restorations should aspire to.

Some of the things that attracted to me to this bike were:

  • Original factory Astral Red and Silver paint on the tank and fenders
  • Original paint on the frame substantiated by DOT sticker
  • Original woven wiring harness still present and working
  • Original Seat with no tears
  • Rare original “Clear Hooters” horns correct for this year
  • Original finish on castings (Never been media/sand blasted)
  • All lenses and reflectors are present and genuine Lucas
  • Genuine Smith’s instruments
  • Original Dunlop Rims with excellent chrome
  • Correct Gran Turismo Grips
  • Correct DLS front brake
  • Original Registration Paperwork from 1978 and 1981
  • Factory Fasteners throughout
  • Dunlop K70 tires have been fitted since photographed

The bike is not without some minor flaws, there’s a small dent in the top of the tank (can easily be removed by a skilled paintless dent removal technician), paint fade and some rust throughout. The left horn and tach are not currently functioning. Feel free to ask questions or ask for additional pictures. Every year there are more and more restorations of these great bikes but they can only be original once and I believe that is where the true value in this machine lies. Is sold as is, with clean clear Florida title. Buyer is responsible for shipping.
