The Triumph T120 TT was a tremendous race-spec motorcycle that was only offered in the United States. Produced by Triumph from 1963 through 1967 for competition use, they were delivered with a powerful high-compression unit construction engine, no lights or battery, and utilized Lucas energy transfer coils for ignition?. At the end of the 1967 model year, Johnson Motors Inc., the West Coast importer of Triumphs in the U.S. at the time, ordered 200 specially made TT examples for the 1968 model year. They were to have a few modifications from stock, most importantly was the specification of the headstock, having the competition proven steeper 65-degree rake angle from the 1965 model year. However, the 1968 model year T120 TT was cancelled by Triumph, and these 200 special ordered bikes represent the last iteration of the T120 TT models produced. These very rare bikes are documented in the book "Triumph Motorcycles in America" by Lindsay Brooke, and only recently have some examples come to light.
From the final run of the Johnson Motors specially ordered bikes, this particular TT Special was converted for road use early on. When discovered, it was original and complete, having never endured the hard life of racing in the California desert. The result of a meticulous restoration by marque expert, Jonnie Green, this T120 TT is 100% correct down to its 1-year only head bolt stampings, NOS seat cover, and original NOS tires. Quite possibly the finest example in existence, it has covered only test miles since completion, and still retains an original California "pink slip" Title.
