Hello everyone - wanting to return to biking after a 25 years break and naturally looking for a Street Triple - This one caught my eye, any view on model, spec, price?  Not in a massive rush to buy unless I can find an outstanding bargain - https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201809260872382?advertising-location=at_bikes&postcode=wf26qf&model=STREET%20TRIPLE&page=1&make=TRIUMPH&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=Used

I know - I do like the bug eyed round lights and I cant maje my mind up about the Edna Everage newer ones but part of the dilemma is 2007 (albeit obviously well cared for and maintained) older bike and technology v more expensive and possibly less well maintained newer model (unsure about pearlescent purple/green/blue!) from a main dealer

Mines a standard model and is currently being resprayed in Diablo red (standard triumph colour) as I had some bodywork damage where it was dropped.

Its got 17k miles on it had the 12k service done last year and has been kept extremely well maintained in the three years Ive owned it.

Extra goodies include:
Nitron rear shock (500 worth)
675 embossed radiator guard
Triumph shorty levers
R and g tail tidy with integrated indicators
Triumph led front indicators
Anodised oil cap and dip stick
R and G left hand covers and right hand crankshaft cover
New (last year anyway) Motobatt gel battery
Arrows under seat cans
Quick shifter
Renthall gold sprocket and DID gold chain fitted last September
LED side lights and Osram Nightbreaker mains looks nice and white better than the yellow originals!

I have all the original parts taken off it and they will come with it.

New tyres fitted last year have only done about 500 miles.

Its immaculate even the exhaust is shiny lol as I spent a lot of time keeping it that way (my OCD tendencies)

Not sure on pricing yet Ill want a decent value for it as its so immaculate and well maintained.

Its in the paint shop at the moment but I can get some pics as soon as its finished. You wont be disappointed.

Andy.
