"Ebay Baby"........1970 Triumph TR6 650 "Bobber"

This is my 1970 Triumph TR6 (650cc) built by TT Cycles in New Jersey. I was fortunate enough to find it for sale on Ebay where I purchased it and had it shipped to Texas. It was a complete ground up build including the engine which starts on the first kick.

The bike sports a stock front loop and rake. The rear is a "TT" six inch stretch. The engine is mainly stock with Hepolite pistons and a single Mikuni VM30 carb. Front suspension is stock sliders with a 21" wheel laced on the original vented hub with an Avon Speedmaster Mark II 300 tire. The rear 16" wheel on factory hub spins a Shinko 510 tire. TR6 brake drums are slowed by Ferodo shoes. The original fuel tank along with frame and 5" ribbed rear fender is sprayed crimson red with hand painted pinstriping and twisted copper leaf accents. Chrome Barnett hand controls and oval billet mirrors are mounted on 28" chrome drag bars. The rider is seated on an Aidan Originals solo leather seat with a "one-off" stainless steel back rest and pivot. TT Cycles forward foot controls complete the stance. The bobber trumpets exhaustive thunder from the custom upswept pipes.

The bike is a blast to ride once I got accustomed to the reversed foot controls (from my HD). It's a hit at the local bars and Wal Mart....although don't plan toting many purchases home on it!
