1968 Triumph T120c hillclimber from the 1971 movie On Any Sunday. It was the first motorcycle to make tracks on the top of Widdowmaker hillclimb. You can watch the movie and see this bike make history.
The bike was sold new out of Wally Coburns motorcycle shop in Roseburg Oregon. The engine was built by Fred Ford. It has custom racing cams, High compression custom head, ARD Mag and i’m sure some more tricks that I am unaware of.
It was ridden by Mike Gibbons of Grants Pass, Oregon. The bike was later purchased by Bill Pappas, and raced by his son Tom Pappas. They have since raced and changed the bike up a bit through the years. It was last ridden in 2016.
The mag produces great spark, and the bike kicks through with very high compression. I have it on display in my shop, I’ve thought about putting it back to original color and styling that it appeared in the movie, but I will not be using it for any type of sporting.
Would be great to pass it on to a good home where it will be loved or someone can just enjoy the history. Feel free to ask any question or if you need more pictures, just let me know.
