That's not TRCR, it's TR6R.

It should be a single carb 650.

The serial number indicates 1972 model.

Does anyone have a good sight to look up serial numbers?

Some of the ones that I've found are confusing.

in particular, mine is:

RVEG57074

I think it's a 72 TR6R, but I'm not sure since some of the paperwork that I have is conflicting.

Thanks.

Quag, not the one I sent him. Not seen that TIOC web page before. Good for a general over view but you can't beat having the real thing, that's what I sent him................. Guess he did not pick his mail up yet?

Jiust got back from the village pub, checked THIS page out, and now I'm totally confused -I thought my T140V, registered 10/85 was built in Sept 84, then locked in the factory for a year - my engine/frame no. is NJ59372 - when was it actually built ????????????????????????????????

Hey Quag, ME........................... I just like to share, as do most on this forum. I'm still learning and keep finding out more every week. Yesterday I had hold of TWO DOHC 650 T120 Bonnie engines. One will be on show at the BONNEVILLE CELEBRATION in 2009. Check out the sticky at the top of the front page.
