NJ; My 1999 Triumph Speed Triple...

This is my old stand-by motorcycle. I bought it used and rode it for a couple of years. It dawned on me the other day that I'd not ridden it all Summer so I'll move it on. It's a black Speed Triple (the one with twin bug-eyed headlamps)

Relevant disclosures: It has "around" 15K on the clock. The speedo intermittently does not work. It will need a new front tyre and front brake pads soon.

I replaced the battery the other day and it started up like a Toyota. It runs and turns very well. My price is reflective of the previously mentioned maintenance items; and should leave plenty of money left over for a service.

$1900. I'll take some pictures later on today.

Interested.
Is it a leaky Triumph or a non-leaker?
I know they can be either or?
