A last ditch effort from Triumph to boost sales of the Bonneville, the TSX was basically a T140 that had been restyled by Triumph’s American division. Just 371 were built, 200 of which were exported to the United States. About 1/3 of the production run was in Midnight Black, the rest were like this example – Gypsy Red.
The changes were relatively small, but there were plenty of them. The chassis was lowered, made possible thanks to a smaller rear wheel and an off-set engine. The TSX got a stepped seat, black finished engine, shortened painted mudguards, short megaphone exhausts, and stick on graphics, among many other unique features. Upgrades included double Brembo discs, and a kickstarter. The Triumph TSX was supposed to be sold for several more years, but production ended when Triumph went bankrupt in August of 1983.
This example (VIN: 6CMO32147, Engine #: TSX6CMO32147) has under 4,000 miles and it’s titled as a 1988 as that was the year it sold. The seller states that everything works, though the original odometer failed so it’s been replaced (it’s included in the sale so you can total up mileage).
