OK, a friend has offered me a couple of mid 1970's Triumphs. A Bonneville and a Trident. Both have been sitting for quite a while in her nice warm and dry garage. She does not want them as they bring back memories of her Brother and Father who both have passed on. She has full documentation from original date of purchase from the Triumph shop in Seattle where they were both bought brand new. All work done on them was done by that dealer, but that was quite some time ago. The bikes appear to be in excellent cosmetic condition and very low milage. Both under 10,000 miles. They both have aftermarket exhaust, 2 into 1 and 3 into 1. But the original exhaust is there as well and looks like it was taken off shortly after original purchase. Otherwise these bikes look fairly unmolested. They both turn over and I actually got the Bonnie running fairly easily with new gas and a couple of kicks. I realize that both bikes will have to be gone over from one end to the other, replacing seals, bearings, rubber parts, tires, etc. That part I am not afraid of. Done that to lots of BMWs, Moto Guzzis and JAP bikes. I have the garage and the tools and hopefully enough brain cells left to bring these bikes back to life. They are in way too good of condition to just let them sit. So, my question is, What should I offer my friend for these bikes. I don't want to rip her off and don't want to rip myself off. I know that they will be worth a lot more once sorted out, but right now, they will require a fair amount of work and time. I keep checking Fleabay, Craigslist, etc and can't find many of this era to compare to that have not been molested. I think that if it is worth it, I would fix them both up and maybe keep the one that I liked the best of the 2 and sell the other to pay for the fix up. Or, am I just being stupid and should stay away from them altogether? The last time I rode a Triumph was about 35 years ago and that one was in very poor condition when I got it and even worse when I got rid of it. Any thoughts and ideas would be appreciated.
