This week’s eBay find is a good looking T120 Bonneville. Complete with the original paint and chrome, the seller is quite confident that the 5,500 miles the odometer shows are original and correct. Running and ready to go, this could be a heck of a deal.

According to the listing, the bike is in pretty good condition. The tank is clean, and there is a tear at the front of the seat. The listing does mention that the front fender has been “modified to include stiffening similar to what was used on later models.” From the photos, it’s hard to tell exactly how this was carried out.

The bike wears  new fork tubes, seals, “bushes,” cables, coils and a Boyer electronic ignition, along with new handlebars and rubber mounts, brake shoes front and rear, and new carb jets and needles.
