TRI­UMPH SPRINT RS 955i

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Project Hunter -

This old Trum­pet is in need of some love af­ter be­ing left stand­ing. A ba­sic recom­mis­sion should have it back on its wheels. It needs a new bat­tery, chain and sprock­ets, tyres, a deep clean and a ser­vice. These RSS make ex­cel­lent sports tour­ers and their mo­tors are mas­sively over-en­gi­neered so the 45K on the clock is not a con­cern. Cheap tool.

Com­pared to that hideous

CBR (op­po­site) this is a steal. You’d do well to bud­get around £400 for con­sum­ables, so I’d work on that ask­ing price too. With a bit of pur­sa­sion I think you could wheel this away for a grand or even as lit­tle as £900. Worth a punt.

Bit ugly, but a good, strong bike

Prett­tier from the front

It’s all there and un­mo­lested
