790cc | Speedmaster | Custom | For sale
That's the name of the bike. Trouble. And it looks like someone went to an awful lot of trouble to hammer this one together. It's won a few awards, we understand. And we can see why.
Like most bobbers, it doesn't look too practical. But practicality ain't everything, and currently (as of 10th August 2015, 11.20pm) there are 19 bids for this bike, with the price having reached £4,300.
But the reserve hasn't been met, and we expect this one to climb significantly before the hammer falls. And that will be in 3 days and 21 hours. We'll try and keep an eye on it. Meanwhile, here are some details:
Engine: 790cc 2003 Triumph Speedmaster
Frame: Roger Allmond
Forks: 2-inch over springers
Wheels: 17-inch front, 15-inch rear
Fuel tank: Custom one-off, twin Monza fuel caps
Ignition: Procom CDI
Brass machined parts include: seat mount, throttle twist grip mount, rear spindle nut covers, speedo mount, front sprocket cover, fuel tank centre piece, rear light housing, foot pegs, carb tops, number plate nuts, wiring 'P' clips, genuine Triumph valve caps, chain links (?), head stock bearing cover and electrical button surrounds. Other details include Goodridge brake lines, a mini speedometer/odometer, and a leather seat. The bike hails from the Tyne & Wear area, incidentally. And if you're from overseas or simply have a lousy sense of geography, Tyne & Wear is in the North East of England.
If you want to check out this bike, go to eBay and key in: TRIUMPH HARDTAIL CHOPPER BOBBER. That should put it on your screen. But remember, there's just 3 days and 21 hours left.
The seller is: cheersfrankie2015. The feedback score in 100% with 5 positive sales, but Frankie has been a member only since July 2015. He's probably perfectly honest. But as ever, ask some pertinent questions and see the bike before you part with cash.
