    Would be a nice piece of History to have if could afford ATM

    1987 HARRIS TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE-ORIGINAL CONDITION-ONE OF 1258 MADE BY LES.HARRIS

    TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE---HARRIS BUILT--NOVEMBER 1987--NUMBER 1129 of 1258 BUILT UNDER LICENCE TO JOHN BLOOR---THE NEW OWNER OF TRIUMPH FOLLOWING THE DEMISE OF TRIUMPH MERIDEN.
    BIKE IS FOR SALE WITH RESERVE. THIS IS A VERY STRAIGHT AND HONEST EXAMPLE OF A 27 YEAR OLD MOTORCYCLE ----IDEALLY SUITED TO A TRIUMPH ENTHUSIAST WITH A BIT OF MECHANICAL ABILITY ---TRIUMPHS NEED A BIT OF TLC NOW AND THEN FOR RELIABLE GOOD TIME RIDING AND ENJOYMENT.

    THE BIKE HAS RECENTLY BEEN STRIPPED DOWN FOR A THOROUGH CLEAN AND WAX AND POLISH.
    ALSO DONE: NEW OILS---ENGINE, GEARBOX , PRIMARY CHAINCASE, FRONT FORKS.
    NEW "SPIN ON" OIL FILTER INSTALLED & COLUMN OIL STRAINER CLEANED.
    AIR BOXES STRIPPED DOWN & CLEANED & AIR INTAKE FILTERS GIVEN GOOD WASH.
    ENGINE BREATHING SYSTEM RETURNED TO HOW IT WAS IN MID 70s----NOW BREATHING FREELY & AIR INTAKE TO CARBS BACK TO STRAIGHT AIR--MUCH IMPROVED .
    FITTED NEW FUEL LINE to BOTH FUEL TAPS --THICK WALL CLEAR----NOT THE HOSE SHOWN IN THE PICTURE,THAT WAS ONLY TEMPORARY.
    FITTED WITH A SEALED GEL BATTERY WHICH GIVES NO PROBLEMS.
    ALL WIRING CONNECTIONS CHECKED & CLEANED UP--GROUND CONNECTIONS ETC. NEW 3 PHASE RECTIFIER INSTALLED AND CONNECTED UP

    THE HEADLIGHT SHELL IS VERY STRAIGHT AND ORIGINAL-----COULD DO WITH RECHROMING AT SOME STAGE--IF SO INCLINED.
    THE INSTRUMENT "PODS" COULD BE REPAINTED OR POWDER COATED--LIKEWISE IF SO INCLINED.
    THE MUFFLERS ARE NOT THE ORIGINAL ITALIAN ONES----THESE ONES LOOK SIMILAR AND ARE ABLE TO BE HEARD CLEARLY

    AS REGARDS THE ENGINE --I HAVE NOT TOUCHED IT IN MY TIME AS OWNER---A "PAZON" ELECTRONIC IGNITION SYSTEM IS FITTED AND IT IS A BEAUTY-----NO NEED FOR THE TRIUMPH IGNITION COILS

    THE BIKE IS UNREGISTERED AND FOR SALE AS IS
    I HAVE NEVER HEARD THE END OF IT SINCE THE DAY I BOUGHT THIS BIKE------ONE BIKE HAS TO GO-----THIS OR A 1968 TRIUMPH TR6R
    ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK--WILL DO BEST TO ANSWER
    BIKE FREIGHT TO BE ORGANISED BY NEW OWNER---WILL ASSIST WITH PACKING ETC WHERE I CAN
    LOCAL PICK UP IS FINE ---CASH ON PICK UP OR FUNDS CLEARED THROUGH BANK ACCOUNT
    HAPPY TRIUMPH BUYING.

    750cc TR7V Tiger built in Newton Abbott (UK) by LF Harris under licence in the mid-late 1980s and same model also used by Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team. Aftermarket rear suspension units and exhaust silencers replace the original items from Italian manufacturers Paioli and Lafranconi respectively. The direction indicators were originally black plastic German ULO items as fitted to contemporary BMW motorcycles. Here, pattern Lucas chromed items replace them.

    Wonder what Les Harris would have thought of the latest Matchless models ?

    Journey in Life, is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting '..holy sh*t ....what a ride!'
    "look out for corners" :oops: :)

    Harris Matchless G80
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....E:B:SS:AU:1123
    One of 832 bikes made, kick-start model. Powerful rotax engine, only done 6532kms from new. Missing right hand wing mirror, couple of scratches on tank. Tyres only done 1000kms, original tool kit under seat and original owners manual. Regretful sale. A fun bike to ride, the new owner will be delighted with this British oddity

    When you consider this one sold for $5,500
    I think this guy is dreaming > http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....#ht_500wt_1081

    He has a starting price of $10,900 !

    Matchless - Harris G80 500 Motorcycle

    This is a 1988 Matchless-Harris G80 500cc bike. The bike is in excellent condition. No oil leaks and no fuel leaks. Excellent paint.

    This is the model built under licence to Matchless by Les Harris. It has a strong Rotax engine. This bike is rare in that it has factory fitted origina ELECTRIC START and twin discs on the front wheel. The bike still can be kick started. Many of the Matchless-Harris bikes came without the electric start and disc brakes and needed to be modified by the owner. This bike came from the factory with these modifications. Matching engine and frame numbers.


    Brand new battery, has some tools with it. It still has the original UK registration plate and disc.


    The bike is not registered and will be sold without a roadworthy certificate. It is expected that the bike will pass a roadworthy as it is. It will come with the Authority to Import the bike into Australia.. Please note the distance travelled is in Miles.


    The bike may be inspected at Murchison.
    Victoria.

    May consider an exchange of a classic car in good condition of approx same value (jaguar, Mercedes Benz , etc)
