1977 Triumph Silver Jubilee ENG. T140VCP81559 FRAME. T140VCP81559 MILEAGE. 30 $20,000 - $25,000

ROYALLY COOL

In celebration of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, Triumph released a special edition based on the standard 750 T140. A silver finish with redand-blue lining was used and was complemented by a royal-blue saddle with red beading. The primary drive and timing covers were chrome plated and the wheel-rim centres were painted

and lined in the traditional manner. The result was a very British machine which quickly established itself as a collector’s item. Only 2,400 examples were built. The previous owner of this machine acquired it brand new in 1977 rode it down the road to his near by home where he subsequently parked it in his living room for 25 years. The

current custodian acquired it from England and has subsequently add some 20 miles to the clock when the weather and inclination happened to suit. Built for the English market with its low slung geometry and modern tank lines this machine has done only 30 miles since new.
