Triumph Sprint ST
I am looking into a used 2000 Triumph, mentioned above.
Does anyone know of any shops on the Sunshine Coast that I could have it inspected? Or any other advice on this?

It's a 2000 and no I haven't rode any other Triumph's.

There is a triumph rat website, try it and find out about common problems with that model year if any... that would be a start for things to look for.
Like most modern bikes, if it sounds like it's running fine, it's probably alright. The concern of course would be if it's got higher mileage.. and what the oil burn is like... and the slow parts process if you need to buy any parts to rebuild the bike.
Just my .02c. Those bikes are lovely, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a good example of one at a fair price. I think they are very well reputed.
