1996 TRI­UMPH SPEED TRIPLE T309

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Project Hunter -

In­ter­est in this Cat C Speed Triple failed to reg­is­ter. Apart from the front end dam­age: in­stru­ments, mud­guard, tank, the rest of it is pretty scabby, too. Sprag clutches are a known is­sue on these early triples, and it’s an en­gine strip to sort. This could be a cheap way to own a T309, but you could end up chas­ing more is­sues than you bar­gained for.

Not cheap enough. I reckon the fact it’s a Cat C won’t help. For some­one who knows what they’re do­ing, that’s an easy fix, but a lot will be put off by hav­ing to strip the mo­tor.
