That could be right about the road side for the pipes but that would only work for the US market as the UK & Aust. ride on the left.Thanks, Britrich. Yeah, all the old highpipe TR6s had the pipes on the left side. There was a debate about the location of the pipes on the new Scrambler when it came out. Many thought placing the pipes on the right or the "garage side" was so they could be appreciated more while sitting on the kickstand, or from the side of the road when you rode by. There could have been a more complicated engineering reason, the chain is on the opposite side from the classic Triumphs too. While I think my Scram is quite purdy, there's no denying the sparse, athletic good looks of the old bikes.
That is a T100C, not a TR6C. It's a pretty rare bike, as the 500's were much less popular than the 650cc twins. And yes, the kickstarter on the right mandated pipes on the left side.That could be right about the road side for the pipes but that would only work for the US market as the UK & Aust. ride on the left.
Not sure how many know about the Triumph Scrambler forum over at
Nothing but scramblers & lots of photos.
