It has been a few years since I sold my 64 TR6R in which I had invested a lot of mad money and sweat and blood. I decided I needed some oil on the floor and a birthday present for my 72nd, so here you go. 1967T100C numbers matching, electronic ignition, belt drive in the primary (not sure on that, first one I ever had), supposedly a recent rebuild with trap cleaned and punched 40 over. Of course I have already ordered some goodies to make it mine, tires, tank pads, so forth, but the old bike runs decent and it is truly the best shifting vintage Triumph I have ever ridden. Will checking the infor in this section for maintience tips and how to's since it has been awhile. Still got the Whitworth wrenches though....

Slowly starting to make it my own. Trail 400/18 tire went on the back today. The PO was running a non detergent NAPA brand oil. I completely cleaned the tank, lines, oil pump galley, sump, and the neat after market oil filter he installed and went with my personal choice of Valvoline 20/50 racing oil. (For God's sake I never want to be accused of starting an oil thread.) Valve lash checked and they were pretty much spot on. I pulled the exhaust system to get at the barrel studs for tighting and some how the mufflers didn't make it back on, sounds great but I will probably put them back sometime in the future. Installed knee pads also to cover up some of the tank white. Still waiting on some parts, but really enjoying spinning wrenches on something British again. So far the "Little British Girl" is fitting in with her Sisters.....

I really don't know if the bars are OEM, but I agree with you, I find them very comfortable. Thank you for the kind comments....

Hi,
especially like the bars,
don't know if the bars are OEM,
'67 C-range parts book says the T100C 'bars were H1519 (97-1519), which Baxter says are these (with dimensions in one image).

Otoh, '67 650 parts book says TR6C had H1511, which ime appear to be what's in @gbc's images?

Given the two lots of dimensions, @gbc might be able to clarify?

Hth.

Regards,
