Here in the Midwest we’ve gotten our first real snowstorm of the year, and the weather already has us wishing for warm spring days and curvy roads. While that ride may be just a dream for now, this custom Triumph Bonneville T140 seems like it would make the perfect dance partner.

According to the auction, this 1978 Bonneville T140V has been rebuilt in the cafe style. The 750 engine has been rebuilt from the sludge-trap up, and while it still has standard journal and cylinder bores, it uses new rings, valves, guides, amal carbs, a Boyer ignition, a new regulator and more. It features a Corbin Gunfighter seat, stainless spokes, a powdercoated frame, Brembo front and rear brake calipers and master cylinders, and a host of other upgrades.
