Up for sale on Craigslist in Northern California is this very custom 1968 Triumph Bonneville 750. We’ve put this in the ‘Homebrew’ category on the site, where we usually post cool builds that might also have a couple hardware store parts in’em that need replacing (no judgement, our first build was basically a Home Depot hardware aisle). That said, this Homebrew looks pretty well executed.
Seller (who is also the builder), says they went through the bike from top to bottom and dd a full restoration and rebuild (there’s a few photos below).
Seller included an abridged list of upgrades and mods, which include TT pipes, custom billet hand controls, custom billet triple clamp, Joe Hunt mag, custom stainless braided cables, billet rods, balanced crank, forged MAP 11:1/2:1 comp pistons, rebuilt bench flowed and ported head, new valves, springs, seats, guides, mega cycle cams, new amal carbs, custom fuel tank, fuel lines, filters, custom oil tank, etc etc. Seller claims over $15k into the bike, which could reasonably be true.
It all ads up to a chrome’d-out custom that has something very honestly old-school about it, in a way that newer street trackers don’t often replicate. We even like the sportsterey fenders, which oddly seem to work here.
The whole shebang is finished in what looks like a tomatoey red metallic, which works well for the overall package.
Seller has clean title in hand, and we’d guess it’s OBO, though he doesn’t specifically say that.
