Restoration project T100R

Hello,

I'm new on this forum but I've been following it for quite a while for the sake of my curiosity.
I'm a french owner of a 2009 T100 and just bought a T100 R from 70's
It's not so easy to have all the paper work done to be able to ride it in France but I'll be patient.

I found on the forum the link to verify the year of build. The frame number is correct and matches the papers of the motorcycle.

However, the engine Number is APR6228 and doesn't match the frame.
"A" means January and "P" 1977. I have no Idea of the meaning of the R letter...
I look to be sure of the year of the engine as I will need to buy new parts.
Who has an idea of the meaning of the R letter please?

Hello khan973, I think you'll find this a useful and friendly forum. A 1977 T100 is a very late year - I didn't know they made them so late as this, must be one of the very last ever made? Has it got a disc brake front end? Any chance of some photos? Sorry I can't help with the mysterious engine number but I'm sure there are others here who'll know the answer.

Well the engine only seems to be a 77.
Do you know wher I can find the data plate on this motorcycle?

it doesnt sound right to me iv got 3 late engines and they are stamped with 2 leters and 5 numbers followed by the model i:e CN12345 T100R,im sure the very last 500 to come out of triumph was 1974.it seems strange there is only 4 numbers iv never seen that, does it have the triumph logo stamped under the number?is the r an 8?

The frame Number on the left side of the frame is ok and make sense, but on the engine, there is no Logo stamped, it surprised me too.
When I searched based on Roy Bacon's infos, the engine number wasn't making any sense.
It's clearly APR and 4 digits...
Is that a bad thing? It doesn't even look it has been milled and changed.

Any chance the "R" is actually an "8"?

Doesn't explain why the Triumph logo is missing.

That's an R, no doubt.
I looked on internet and that's what surprised me then, my engine doesn't have the Triumph logos behind the Serial
I have no Idea of what has been done to it. I don't know what is the regular thickness of the milled part wher the Serial lays.
If mine is thicker, it means it has been milled then stamped with a new number. But it doesn't look like it.
