    For sale,

    Triton.
    Norton Slimline Featherbed with correct Roadholders etc.
    9 stud 650 Bonneville top end (T-bird engine no).
    Norton AMC gearbox.
    Akront rims, too many other mods to list.

    Bike was built to race but run on club plates instead.
    Give it an alloy tank and a tidy up and double my asking price of $10K.
    Located Wollongong area.

    So why don't you want to make them extra 10 grand (minus cost of alloy tank) yerself?

    I've been playing with bikes since the 60's and am getting close to my check out time, :( we only have so many years.
    I really have to focus on a couple of big non bike projects. I've been selling my bikes and cars off, this is the last to go, I'm only keeping one classic and my Street Triple R. So in short the answer is lack of time. I can't put the time and effort into the Triton to chase 6 or 8K when I'm using my time on bigger fish.

    That's the most sensible answer I've ever heard for selling :up:

    Cheers.
    Funny thing is that I retired 6 years ago and the time is just flying, I've got more to do these days than when I was employed.

    So come and get it. :smile:

    Not a problem, I sent a Norton Commando the UK in a box.
    Now, I see that you're only from Perth, send the money and I'll ride it to you, LOL. :bike:

    Hey abc,

    Will we ever see you again once your bike is sold or are you just one of those rude fukkers who drops into a forum trying to sell some shit cause you an post a free ad rather than pay $60 to list on bikesales....?

    From the sounds of it you have a wealth of motorcycling experience that would be interesting to everyone...
