1976 Triumph Bonneville Bobber
Elliott from Milford, New Hampshire, United States, made available these pictures of his gorgeous Triumph Bonneville Bobber which has a 1976 Triumph T140V 750cc vertical twin engine in an original 1970 Triumph frame with a bolt on hardtail.
Elliott: "Built locally by one of the most experienced Triumph experts in the country, this bike combines the best of 'New' and 'Old School'! Frame is clean unaltered 1970 Bonneville frame paired with a 1976 low mileage 750 Bonneville 5 speed. Complete drivetrain has been gone through. Top end completely rebuilt 750 Tiger with a single Amal carb for better low end torque and easier maintenance."

While trying to keep up with competition from Japan, in 1973 Triumph upgraded the vertical twin 650cc T120 Bonneville engine to the 750cc T140V. In the process, the tranny was upgraded from 4-speed to 5-speed.
Elliott's Triumph Bonneville Bobber uses a battery tucked away in the horseshoe oil tank.
Here's a detail view of the newly rebuilt 750 Tiger top end with the new NGK plug wires installed.
