Triumph Tr6C 1971, the 'C' stands for competition (just in case you were wondering) this bike was only made in this frame for one year only by Triumph, it uses the BSA designed oil in the frame modified to suit the Triumph engine, all the following years had a further modified (lowered seat height etc frame). I have just imported this bike back home to England from the USA. These bikes are quite rare over here. It is a low mileage 4,800 (unrestored) more or less as it left the factory still with the original paint. Since acquiring the bike, I have cleaned and polished it, replaced leaking front fork seals, stripped the primary cover as the bike was emitting a strange noise from the primary side where I found the primary chain, the adjuster and rod to be worn, also one of the 6 screws that retain the gear box sprocket cover had fallen out and been chewed up by the chain (I did wonder where the pools of oil were from). Since rectifying the problems listed I find this a very nice bike to ride it has 'loads of bottom end grunt' I have also drilled and tapped the handle bar leavers and fitted mirrors to them as I find mirrors are a must have over here with our levels of traffic
I did not think I would like this bike when it arrived as I thought it would a big, bulky, vibrating bone shaking lump......but boy O boy have I been pleasantly surprised (I am used to the 500cc Daytona models) the extra CC's make a tremendous difference the bike it is more responsive quicker with top speed and acceleration a real joy, cannot wait to put a few more miles on the clock

1971 TR6C NEW
by: DaveRatters

I have one of these - the high frame TR6C 1971 build year (1972 model year)

Mine has been "Bonnevilised" with low level exhausts (BSA Rocket silencers), no bash plate, flip up pegs replaced with fixed, Bonneville head and carbs.

Shame but it would cost a small fortune to return mine back to standard - assuming I could find the parts.

Nice bike.
