'Course it is. Maybe it would help if you added how much you want to spend and where in God's Earth you may be? :1204

I think you might find you need a few more pennies to get one of those as '69 seems to be a desirable year for them so prices are high:

Fifteen hundred quid tops for one of the most desirable Bonnies? Be bargain of the century if you find one to fit that particular bill. Best bet is to search Ebay (advanced search including completed listings) to see the going rate.

hi, ok instead of critisising everything i say, the whole point of my question was to get advice..i have not been in touch with bikes for a long time and it would be nice if there was some help..ie try there or there and you are looking at £3000 or whatever..anyone who is in the know can pick faults..why not be constructive ?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-Bobbe ... 3a7de73b31
for a bobber that starts at £3000

and
a Project at a bid of £3000 at time of posting and still bids going on

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRIUMPH-T120R ... 35c3c67cca

cheapest classified I found was for a 1972 T120 at £4750
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1972-L-Triump ... 3ccd94844f
seems to be a few Bonnie's on there that are over £15000
so best bet is to just keep looking the the Classic Bike mags, Old Bike Mart or keep checking E Bay, who knows with a bit of patience what you might find.

Patience appears to be a trait which is sadly lacking in this particular new member. :17

Well ~ mate ~ If you want the goodies you might just go non-original ~ that is a mismatched model ~

Personally I think it depends on " your" motives ~

Do " you" want the 100% original concours ~ Or do " you" want the bike ~

My Trident is a combo ~ T150T frame which BTW is considered a better frame and a T150V donkey ~ (Not mentioning the other issues such as front end and Hinckley rear end ~ )

If you want the original real deal concours deal ~ be prepared to go the extra dollars ~ or on your case the Squidlleys ~

In Ozzie Concours is not a BIG deal ~ and personally I am quite happy with my choice ~

But Good luck on your path ~ please ~ keep us posted on your path ~ with heart ~ rock rock

:158 "Wowwhaaa ~

hi,for all those suggestion thank you, as for mismatched frame and engine i suppose it only matters when u come to sell it, at least you have a good looking machine to ride. I know there are a lot of machines on ebay but they are all in good working order..i was looking for something that may be in the bottom of somebody's garden and needs copletely re building ie a project to work at or at least a complete frame and maybe a complete engine as buying parts separately would cost too much.....regards
