Stephen Figueriedo’s Triumph Bonneville T120


Hey Cafe Racer,

I bought this Triumph back in 2007 off a friend & turned it into a multi-trophy winning “daily rider.” Its my only cycle, & being a mechanic by trade, I break it down quite often to keep it running tip top… I tend to “get on her” and with that comes some issues occasionally. I enjoy every second riding it here in New England and I enjoy Cafe Racer TV! I’m a man of few words so I’ll let the specifications speak for her.

1972 T120V (modified to 750cc) Morgo big bore kit
CP1000 gear upgrade in the tranny
Full Kibblewhite top end (push-rods, valves, springs,cups, keepers)
Valve & cylinder bore work by (R. Johnson & Sons: Warwick, RI)
crank balancing & con-rod blueprinting by (Britech)

case vented via nose-cone & NUPRO 1/3psi check-valve back into the OIF
Gauge holder by (Triples Rule) modified slightly

Hagon shocks
Progressive fork springs with leak-proof seals & gaiters up front
Hand made stainless steel brake & shifter levers (me)

I’ve never had it dyno’d, so I don’t know the Hp @ the rear wheel nor the torque curve, but clocked the bike @ 120mph alongside a friends vehicle.
