Early VIN Triumph Hurricane X-75. Matching numbers bike. This was number 296 of approximately 1172 Hurricanes that were made. Frame: TRX75PH00296 Engine: V75VPH00296 This is a nice bike with very low miles. Odometer reads only 3918 miles. It has the original paint, original exhaust, even the original tires I think. Right now it is not running. I have it parked in my garage. If it doesn't sell, I think I will ride it around this summer once it gets warm again. These Hurricanes are rare bikes. You can do some research on line about them. I have the original front rim and original seat, both in great shape. The bike is missing the grab rail and has the rear fender/tail light modified a bit. The fiberglass body work is in excellent condition with no cracks. The paint is original. The front triple trees are solid and there are no cracks in them, which was an issue on these bikes sometimes. Original triple Amal carbs. The bike still has the original fuel lines. Brakes work well both front and rear. I probably am forgetting something here, but if you have any questions about the condition of the bike itself, you can message me if you wish. I am not a mechanic nor am I a Triumph guru. I am a motorcycle enthusiast. Thank you for looking and if you are a bidder, good luck. The bike will sell to the highest bidder if reserve is met. Just bid your best if you are a serious buyer. Thanks. Oh, it comes with a clear title too.PAYMENT: $500 DEPOSIT THROUGH PAY PAL. THE REST BY CHECK, WIRE TRANSFER. BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE PICKING UP THE BIKE OR HIRING YOUR SHIPPER TO PICK UP THE BIKE WITHIN 30 DAYS PLEASE. AFTER THAT, IT IS 5 BUCKS A DAY STORAGE. On Feb-03-18 at 04:41:04 PST, seller added the following information: People have asked about the BSA stamping on the engine. The story behind these Hurricanes is that BSA actually built the bike with the help of Craig Vetter in the body design and used the BSA Rocket III engine design and the bike is essentially a BSA. BSA went insolvent shortly before the bike was to be introduced and Triumph bought all the BSA machining and tools and then introduced the bike as a Triumph. This is my understanding. Thanks.
