Pageclaim!

Ask to see all receipts for the "rebuild".
If it is really a 68, the engine numbers will be between DU66246 to DU85903.
At least it is right shift, so it just might be a 68...
The only reason it will be 750cc and not 650cc is if someone has put a big bore kit on it.

The reason I doubt anything written there is all the Harley crap on the bike, in nearly every case I have talked to someone with a similar Harley crossover build they have been a dickhead and wouldn't know their arse from their elbow.

Oh gawd, it even has tassels.

Example, he didn't even have the sense to prop up the broken kick start for the photos.

Go prepared. I can still see there is a very good base to work off for a decent bobber build though.

Good luck learning to right shift too!

Heres the newer post

I don't think it is a bolt on hardtail with a stock frame but it could be. He is not claiming it is a 68 frame. When people refer to the year of a custom bike with a hardtail they are normally usually referring to the engine only. It is assumed that the hardtail frame is not stock unless indicated. I believe he is saying the engine only is a 68 but ou find out soon enough. The front forks are 72 or later. The disc brakes may be from a 73 or not even Triumph. Everthing else including the pipes are not stock.

Thanks for all the info guys!
I will be calling the guy tomorrow to ask him a few questions before I drive 2 hours to go and look at the bike. Hopefully the bike turns out to be a keeper because theres hardly any old triumphs for sale near where I live.
But if all else fails I will have to settle for buying a HD for a bobber project since HDs are always for sale...better stock up on oil now

Get a spring seat and lose the front fender, cut the fork spacers and you got a bobber.

Here's another "possibility". I have no idea what it looks like though.
$1,500 might be cheap or way too much, but it isn't a lot of money.

That bike is in issue #38 of Dice magazine, not much info other than '70 Trophy 500. From the looks of it, probably a 2" stretch with no more than a 2" drop, forks look stock length, gas tank looks to be an Alien style.
