Triumph T120 Flat Track for sale

On UK eBay. Thanks to Mike for the tip-off. Their spelling mistakes, not ours (for a change).

For Very Reluctant sale due to new project, my Triumph Flattracker built by well known American Flattrack hero Jim Henry, Henry rode with all the greats since the early 60s such as Dick Mann, Gene Romero, Kenny Roberts and Gary Nixon. The bike was built and prepared for Texas outfit 'Team Gulfsteam' and raced in the early noughties in the VDTRA series by Willard Kelly and team members with some success. The bike was prepared for another season but never saw action that year as the rider came off the previous year, broke his leg and was persuaded by his wife to hang up his boots. Consequently she is in Excellent condition and runs beautifully.
Team Gulfsteam were a competive outfit but sadly do not exsist anymore, I had along conversation with Jim Henry last year about this particular bike and he gave me the full low down, which makes for great listening but too much to list. She is a very highly and expensively prepared race machine with all the right bits, in short she is absolutley frightening, and amazingly quick. The frame is a 60's T120 frame and the Engine a heavily breathed on T140 . The list is endless to what has been to prepare the bike but anyone out there who knows about these machines will recognise whats been done. I can be reached on 07887 984845 and am happy to chat about the bike. The bike was imported 3 years ago and has never been registered in the UK so an daytime mot and new V5 will have to be applied for if you want to run her on the roads. I am situated in South Scotland but am happy to deliver the bike for the fuel money.
This is an extremely rare machine and built by one of the best in the business using all the right bits. Im passionate about Flattrackers and really will be so sad to see her go as this is one bike which gets a huge crowd where ever she turns up. The reserve is very low considering the ammount is cost to build.
