Is this a Triumph part?

This was on my project when I got it, it had guages from drag specialties in it.
Is it a Triumph part or aftermarket with a Triumph tag?

Triumph wouldn't have put a patent plate on it.

Holycrap!!! That is about the most robust gauge mount I've ever seen! You could probably use it to tow vehicles.

I'd say that this is a homemade part and someone just added the patent plate. Please post pics of the bike. I'm sure we'd love to see what other unique items have been made for this bike. Any large cast iron pieces attached to it. I'm guessing it might have some farm implements bolted to it as well.

regards,
Rob

Cool

Not that bad looking really.

Some kind of alloy or aluminum to fit on a straight drag bar.

Probably would look better with gauges and fitted to a killer build. . .

Who knows?

Is that good?


Does it mean it's "rare" on EBay?

Anyway, wrong forum for Hinckley!

It was cut form 3/4" billet aluminum plate. If it was polised up its actually a pretty nice piece.
Im not going to run any guages on my bike, so I figured if it was a part people were looking for Id offer it up. I guess its just got the tag.

The fact that it is the only one of it's kind in existence, therefore ultimately rare, and the fact that it is interesting, makes it rare & interesting.

I am sure there are more than a few people that would bid on it on e-bay, with no reserve and a reasonably low starting bid...
