The TT was a tremendous race-spec bike that was only offered in the United States. They were produced by Triumph from 1963 through 1967. At the end of the 1967 model year Johnson Motors, one of the largest importers of Triumphs in US at the time, ordered 200 specially made TT for 1968. They were to have a few modifications from stock, most importantly was the specification of the headstock having the steeper 65-degree rake angle from the 1965 model. Of course the 1968 model year never happened, and these 200 special bikes represent the last of the T120 TTs. These very rare bikes are documented in the book “Triumph Motorcycles in America” by Lindsay Brooke.
This example was always a race bike, and was never road registered. It was original and complete, making it an excellent candidate for restoration. The result of over a year of work, this TT is 100% correct down to its 1-year only bolt stampings, and unobtanium, original NOS tires.
