  • Now the details:

    This is an assembled rolling chassis, rame and motor case number T140V PP79197, ovember 1977. I purchased this for $200 back in 1981 with no title, nly a bill of sale. I will provide all the 1981 paperwork. I used the motor internals for another project.

    I purchased all the hardware in 1996 and then got involved in vintage motorcycle racing and never finished the project. This fall I got all the parts out of plastic storage bins, ainted the frame and fitments and assembled the bike minus motor and electrics.

    Here is a description of the parts on the bike:

  • New Corbin Gunfighter seat.
  • New Koni adjustable shocks both adjustable spring and adjustable dampening rate.
  • New rear wheel with Akront shoulder rims, tainless spokes, ew rear wheel bearings, ew rear sprocket, unlop 591 tire (new). Rims made in Spain.
  • New front wheel with with Akront shoulder rims, tainless spokes, ew front wheel bearings.
  • Clubman Racing rear sets (out of Connecticut). The right set should not be removed to install the motor. Getting the rear brake spring and rear sets adjusted is difficult. All right motor mount bolts are assembled with blue Loctite.
  • Mounted CSM #308 sports fairing. This fairing is hand laid fiberglass construction with smoke windscreen. I have about 60 hours in mounting the fairing, rimming for clearances and building suitable brackets.
  • Clip-on handle bars with about a 1 1/2 inch rise to match the cutouts in the fairing.
  • Rear brake assembly has new hoses, ebuilt calipers, ew pads, tainless master cylinder and finished disc. There is some surface corrosion on the disc but it will soon wear off when you bed the pads. MOTUL RF 600 DOT4 brake fluid. Rear brake hardware assembled with blue Loctite.
  • Front brake assembly has new hoses, ebuilt calipers, ew pads, tainless master cylinder and finished disc. There is some surface corrosion on the disc but it will soon wear off when you bed the pads. MOTUL RF 600 DOT4 brake fluid.
  • New fork tubes, eals, teering head bearings. stock springs and filled with 200cc, 2.5 wt Belray fluid. Blue Loctite on lower fork nuts torqued to 20 ft-lbf.
  • Euro fuel tank purchased new in 1980 and used for about 6 weeks than stored with WD-40. No petcocks. There is still WD-40 in the tank that will need flushing.
  • Handlebar controls. All switches work (even the front brake switch. New Superbike bar grips.
  • New rear grab rail.
  • 1968 style rear tail light. The rear tail light is all wired with bulb with the proper ground wire.
  • New headlight shell and light with new headlight switch. Indicator lens in headlightshell, o bulbs.
  • Reproduction turn signals (not Lucas) with bulbs and ground wires for the front.
  • 1972 style aluminum air boxes (no filters).
  • Oil filter (Charlies type). Filter is installed with about a pint of oil. You must use this because despite my flushing with diesel fuel I cannot guarantee the cleanliness of the oil tank (down tube).
  • New ignition switch on right cover.
  • Gray paint is PPG DBC base and white is PPG pearl with PPG black trim. All gray parts are cleared with PPG 2041. I will provide the remainder of the metallic gray paint.
  • New in 1996 BUB exhaust system with crossover for push-in head. The peashooter mufflers are not Norton, hey were manufactured by BUB out of California. Exhaust system was never used and is no longer made. It is truly first-rate quality.
  • Frame painted with PPG primer and Coatingstore Jet Black.
  • I zinc-chromated most of the bolts, uts and fitments. I use the Caswell Copy-Cad system for 30 minutes with chromate finish.
  • I request only a $100.00 deposit within 2 days of winning the auction. I ask the remainder be provided via bank check. I am working on a negative margin with this bike and PayPal does not need more from me.

    Buyer is responsible for shipping. I will help. I have shipped a Norton Commando from Galway NY to Hollywood CA and just recently purchased an RC 51 from Florida and had it shipped to NY. My estimate is shipping will run you about $500.00.

    Please bid with knowledge. Look and the video and consider you will need a motor and wire the bike. Also realistically consider your mechanical skills. You will need to find a 1976-1977 T140V, wo carburetor motor. (I also have a spare motor) This is a very nice bike, ood café parts and soundly assembled. Please write with any questions. Thanks for looking. And look at the video!!!!
