I'll buy your OEM horn for $30...
Where do I send the cash
Send it to Paypal, $28.99, it's 2 years newer but a stock part.
1971 Triumph T120 T 120 T120RV T120V V Bonneville 650 T120R 1005 Horn | eBay

Here's another for $52:

1971 Triumph T120 T 120 T120RV T120V V Bonneville 650 T120R 1005 Horn | eBay

Emgo replacement for the original is only $17.99

I'm still surprised he turned down that bike, which is fairly priced, over the cost of a horn. Let me know what he ends up with, if and when he buys a bike.

A horn's a horn and can be had all day long for $15-$20. The only time it would matter if it was original is on a restored 100 point bike. You won't find a 68 Triumph 650 in that condition for anywhere near $5400.
I may sell you mine for $30 and buy the cheap one above, mine may not even work, don't know.

You should buy it and stick it in your cousins face ever weekend you ride by his house on it. Don't let him ride it.:cool:

The 1969 T120R came with twin windtone horns. They are simply unavailable. And you need 2 of them for a correct bike. They cost considerably more than $30 when you can find them. It isn't out of line to pay $200+ each for them. There's your $400. There is no guarantee that you could even find them though.

I know that. You know that. I wasn't a coincidence his offer was a little over 5k.

But at this point, I am done arguing. And I understand his point. Personally, i would have been happy owning a 95% bike. But it wasn't my call.

Whatever. If I find some extra cash under my couch cushions, I'll beg for a second chance.

I would have bought it for the $5400 and installed a cheap horn and never thought of it again.
Does your cousin know how to ride yet? I personally would be apprehensive about buying a nice antique to learn to ride on.

The horn would probably vibrate off and break eventually anyway, he missed out. I agree about learning on an antique bike, I'd hate to see it get dropped or improperly maintained. What do I know, he could be just fine.
