1969 Triumph TR6

1969 Triumph, TR6 650cc (upgraded to 750cc)

This is a Kansas barn find early 2000s. I drove it in Arizona for city transportation, maintained it in its original, stock standard condition. In recent years, I had it restored from the frame up because I needed a dependable, high-speed highway machine with modern safety features.

So, while keeping as close as possible to its original, 100% stock standard, vintage Triumph construction, I made the following upgrades during the restoration process (all of which can be reversed for stock purists): 1)paint scheme, 2)turn signals, 3) external Trident oil filter, and 4)a heat reflecting seat cover.

• The original Smith’s instruments (tach & speedo) were rebuilt by Joel Levine. They work.
• Original Amal carb was replaced with a newer model Amal in 2015 (to handle ethanol)
• Newly rebuilt engine was increased by a 750cc kit (larger cylinder head).
• Installed a Triumph Trident style disposable oil filter
• Replaced original oil pump to improve flow.
• Up-graded to a 220 Watt Stator/Alternator kit by SPARKS.
• Replaced points ignition to newer Boyer pointless ignition
• Rebuilt transmission, crank bearings, rod bearings, new valve guides, springs, and valves, etc.
• Installed new clutch
• Rebuilt front shocks, installed new Hagon twin rear shocks (200 miles ago)
• Installed 1973 Triumph front and rear turn signals (removable)
• Other safety, modern improvements include complete rewire with new wiring harness for a new, all LED lighting system (headlight, tail light, instrument lights, and four turn signal light bulbs).
• For luggage on road trips, installed an extra, tubular, 12” x 12” chrome luggage carrier over rear fender. This matches the chrome parcel grid on the tank.
• New Dunlop tires (original look) with extra thick tubes.
• Chrome rims, originals, (see photos) stainless steel spokes
• New seat padding with non-heat absorbing “desert tan” seat cover.
• Matching Frame and Title VIN.
• Horn, kill switch, hi-lo beam switch, turn signal switches all rewired and working.
• For safer driving in Phoenix traffic, I had the tank and fenders repainted in a bright, “Safety Green” color, and added rear view mirrors.
• Front Brake Twin Leading Shoe
• 1350 New Engine Break-in miles.

Aside from the rider-safety and modern upgrades, this bike is near stock standard (still has original Bradley bolts on rear shocks), no permanent alterations. It is a daily rider, has been titled in Arizona since 2009.

Current Arizona (Green, 1979) license plate “P66HMC” (see photos) will be sold with bike.

Upon email request, I will send a iPhone videos that shows bike starting, running day and night on the road, and all turn signals and instrument lights working.

Asking $8000.
