Anybody want a rolling pre-unit Triumph project?

I'm having trouble deciphering the frame number, and coordinating it to the engine number. It's a '62 TR6SS engine, but the frame seems to be a '55 (although I could be wrong), and the forks are bitsa Triumph, not correct for either year. Engine has very good compression; it's got distributor ignition. No, it's not a slick-shift equipped tranny. Seat is an aftermarket diamond tuck that I had laying around. Over time, I'll likely scroung up a set of headlight ears and get a headlight on it, maybe one meter core and a set of levers. Other than that, it is what it is...



Make me a reasonable offer...

Hi Paul, could you email me photos of what you have as engine, frame and gearbox numbers go and I will see what I can get on it.

Paul, looks like the gearbox is a much earlier one? Swing arm frame. Try using a piece of white black board chalk rubbed over the frame and then gently wipe the area before you take the photos. I will require the gearbox number as well.
