Default 1959 Triumph 5TA Speed Twin 500cc

Guys, What do you think the right price for Triumph Speed Twin bike ? I'm thinking of picking up a bike from one of the my known resource, hence would like to know the market price range for this bike.

5TA would mean it is a Bath Tub with a unit construction ( monobloc ). I would not like to quote a guiding price simply because I believe, It is between the Buyer & Seller to agree on the right price.

Trammway,
If the condition of the Speedtwin is immaculate you can think of buying it for 2 lacs onwards, most important is it's originiality, engine condition ...as parts for these bikes can cost you a fortune and are extinct in India, you will need to source it from abroad. Chek my thread " My classic bikes" or view my garage.

Anyway I have managed to capture few pics of the bike that is being restored. Actually there are two bike being restored as one, hence all the parts are available.

Due to insufficient funds, the project has been put on hold. As per my last expense estimation the project cost was projected upto 1.2L.
