Amal 389/95 1-3/16" carburetor Johnson Motors Triumph T120C 1963-6 T120TT 1965-6: $275
Sure, I realize you can buy a brand new Amal 389 1-3/16" carb for $300, but I'm not trying to market this carb to the savvy buyer trying to save money. I'm looking for the competition Triumph owner who sweats the details. This is a usedAmal 389 1-3/16" monobloc carburetor stamped 389/95 and 7 65 (July 1965 manufacture date). It is in excellent condition, the slide fits the bore well and the original finish presents beautifully. This carb came strictly on Triumph competition models the Johnson Motors T120TT (west coast) and Triumph Corporation T120C (east coast) in 1965 and 1966. If you look at any new Amal 389 monobloc carb, they don't stamp numbers on the flange, the float bowl cover has AMAL on it, and the finish doesn't look the same. For those very reasons, most restorers have the original Amal carbs sleeved, if they still have them. Many of these competition Triumphs have long since converted to Amal 900 concentric carbs, so now the bikes being restored are going back to the original 389 monobloc carbs. It's a real pity I don't have another one, but hopefully the buyer has one also that needs a mate.
