    It's bog-standard aside from a set of polished stainless steel engine bolts. It was serviced last year at Lings Triumph and had 3 x new coil packs fitted at a cost of over £500 - aside from that, it's been well-maintained and has never had any issues whatsoever.
    I bought the bike from a close friend in 2012 but unfortunately, I've suffered a back injury and now struggle to ride it.
    It has had the factory recall work done (replacement fuel pump fitting) and the only thing it could do with is a new set of tyres - the originals have loads of tread but have started to age. I have no accurate idea on what it's worth, but it has to be the best available of this model and looking at others for sale, has got to be worth £3500?
    This bike is a genuine, well-cared for, immaculate example of the year and I really would like to see it go to someone that appreciates it as much as I have!

    Please give your 'expert' thoughts on the bike and the price it's advertised for and PM if you're interested or need any further info!

    That is such a beautiful bike Andy, sorry to hear that it has to go because of an injury, but I’m sure it’s going to fetch a good price in that condition. Good luck with your back and the sale.

    That's a well looked after bike. Look how clean the linkages are. Shame you're having to sell it.

    That's a cracking looking bike,16 years old and only 4000 miles on the clock, that's only 250 miles a year :eek:..it's not even run in yet, such a shame you are unable to ride it.£3500 seems a lot for a 16 year old bike but considering the mileage and the condition maybe it's not

    Sorry to hear about your back. If I had the money I would take you prize machine off your hands straight away. I do hope you get better soon and find a machine that suits your back.
    Regards
    Joe

    Five years time £3500 will seem a bargain, these are an emerging classic, most have been crashed and trashed, if I had the space I’d pay £3500 for it, doubt you’d find another that good.

    Thanks for all the positive comments lads - It really is as described and the reason for sale is genuine - I still love to ride it when I get the chance but can only do (relatively) short distances and unfortunately, I pay for it the following day!
    Absolutely love Triumphs and the triple engine and If I do sell the speed Triple, I'm gonna go for a Tiger Sport - heard it's a speed triple on stilts (sounds ideal!) :)

    There are shocks out there that could sort you speed triple. But suppose its money wasted if it doesn't work. Wish I knew something to repair backs. I even feel it these days when I go longer journeys. Bloody Bummer this getting older.
    Regards
    Joe.
