I have a 1965 T120C, numbers matching. I am located about one hour north of Sacramento Ca. I am posting this to see if there is any interest in it. It has the original tank, needing paint, 2 into 1 pipe, converted to 3 wire alternator with battery replacement capacitor. I'll get pictures up if there is interest.

Those bikes are desirable, with original paint tank, matching numbers, you should do well. Posting pictures and an asking price would bring more interest I believe. Do you have a price in mind?

The tank needs paint, in primer right now. I believe it was used as a flat track bike, had a fiberglass tank and seat pan on it when I bought it, unfortunately the tank de-laminated and was not repairable. I also believe the compression has been increased from what my leg tells me when I kick it over. The primary has been drilled to make timing with a timing light possible.

I'll get some pictures soon, I am racing the weather to finish replacing the deck and carpet in my boat before it starts raining.
I have the title in my name, and it is registered Non-Op.

If this was my bike and I was trying to get the best price I could get, I would wheel it outside and take a lot of of pictures. A good majority of my pictures would show the complete bike from the ground up and side to side. If I wanted to show the frame and engine numbers, those pictures would be taken as if I was looking directly at them like reading a book. I wouldn't have the only pics I posted that caused potential buyers to have to strain to see details and or not see them at all. Just my 2c worth and here to help.

Also, how about posting an asking price? Or is this supposed to be a silent auction?

Looks like a 69/70 front brake, definitely large bore TT style tuck-in headers, that's the only cues I got before photobucket sickened me with its pop-up ads.

I have the stock single leading shoe front wheel/tire also, and another rear wheel, the air cleaner covers, a couple extra carbs of unknown origin, a later model tank with new badges...As I said I was just posting to see if there was interest in her. I figured posting a couple pics would at least get a conversation started. I have no control over photobuckets advertising, if there is a better picture posting site I can use I would be happy to be informed of it. When I am finished with the current work I am doing I will get better pictures, at this moment, as I said, I am trying to prepare for stormy weather.

Agreed, it was kind of a spur of the moment decision to post it at all, and I have never used a picture Hosting site before to share pics.

What is your asking price???? There is interest in buying it, so set a price. Are you trying to make it an auction? If you looking for advice to determine its value, for that we would need pictures, including the frame and engine #'s. Why so cagey about posting a price?

'68 was a one-year-only configuration that had the cable exiting the hub horizontally, and looping back/up to the handlebar. The front fender would snag the cable on heavy braking / fork compression, and lock up the front wheel, typically tossing the bike down the road.

I never had that problem with my '68, it was a very long time ago and I don't remember where the cable came out. I just noticed the air vent looks the same as the 68. Thanks for the info.

Here are the engine/frame numbers. Hopefully I can get her outside and cleaned up tomorrow, sorry for the delays, the weather has been uncooperative. If anyone has more information about which version of T120C this is it would be appreciated.

This website will give you a lot of information. But it won't tell you if this bike is TT or Street Scrambler variant... which it sounds like you're asking about?

If the bike was dispatched to West Coast, it would not have been a Street T120C. If dispatched to the East Coast, it could have been either.

I'd suggest contacting Charles Rising, author of the website's articles, he could give more insight, and has copies of the build and dispatch records that may narrow it down.
