Listed with no reserve, this 1938 Triumph Speed Twin is a bike that rarely comes up for sale, and with a starting bid of just $4,000, there's a chance that somebody is going to get one heck of a deal.

According to the auction, the engine turns over with what seems to be good compression. The transmission shifts through the gears smoothly and firmly, finds neutral easily. The body seems to be in fair shape, despite the "dent/crease" at the top front of the fuel tank.

The auction also mentions that the bike currently wears the wrong headlight and supports, but that it does include the original toolbox.

Truly a classic bike! But it's so rare that the few missing bits will be very hard to find, and without them its value seems diminished IMO.
