Triumph Bonneville T140

Restoration Guide

ABOUT THE BOOK
The Triumph 750 of 1973 to 1983 is probably the classic British motorcycle that most people will recognise, whether they are an enthusiast or not. Their desirability continues to grow, aided by their easy availability and excellent parts back up. This book is aimed at the DIY enthusiast interested in their renovation and restoration, and is fully illustrated with high quality colour images, coupled with clear and concise text.

Following the real life resurrection of a T140E, with all the work being carried out by the author, the book shows how to assess wear in all mechanical components, then assists in deciding the most cost effective method of dealing with it. The process is dealt with in detail giving the owner the confidence to carry out their own repairs to a high standard, which will be both cost effective and satisfying. Brakes, suspension, brightwork and trim are all also addressed, making this an essential purchase for all Triumph 750 owners.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mark Paxton has spent his adult life repairing and restoring vehicles ranging from humble mopeds up to large trucks. He has written extensively about the process in classic car and motorcycle magazines along with eight other books published by Veloce. The latest project to fall under his spanners is the Triumph 750 twin, the ideal entry point into the world of classic British bikes.
