    Ok for sale my TBird £6000
    All works , in good condition some surface rust to chrome due to it being stored outside.
    Reason for selling it don’t want it going to waste as I’m not riding it as I should.
    Plus it’s stored outside.
    Extras on the bike , all Triumph official accessories.
    Comfort seat
    Heated grips
    Panniers and fitting kit
    Alarm/immobiliser
    Auxillary lights
    Back rest and frame
    Had Avon Cobras fitted last year ( done about 2K miles since fitting)
    New reg/regulatory fitted this year.
    Rear shocks chrome coming away on springs.
    It did get an advisory on these on the MOT but bike rides exactly the same way since I’ve had it.
    Has done 7K miles.
    Will go up slightly as using the bike day to day.
    Forgot the Auxillary power socket :)

    Hi Gary,

    Are the various bit of corrosion & flaking chrome fixable for sensible money?

    The people that buy that kind of glitzy bike. Invariably want an immaculate example.

    Replacement shocks from Hagen £230 , so I would say yes.
    The other bits just need a keeping clean.
    I’ve priced it with that in mind DD, most of these I see are £7000+ with far less in the extras.
    This one is nearly at the LT level all its missing is the screen, footboards and crash bars

    In that case, have you looked into px'ing it?
    Dealers are just as willing to take in a more expensive bike & sell you something cheaper plus cash your way.
    Obviously, you'll get a better deal if you can sell it privately. Might be worth looking into though Gary? I remember you saying ages ago that you won't buy privately. So a px could be a simple one stop shop?

    What type, size & price range of bike are you looking to replace it with?

    A 500 cc or 600cc.
    None of the local dealers have anything I want so at present.
    I prefer to buy dealers bike but I would buy privately if the right bike was there.

    Sorry to hear it Gary, have you looked at the larger step throughs? There are some good ones out there, our branch of bloodbikes trialed a Honda that they were impressed with, or there’s the 500cmx
