TipRat,
Welcome to the forum.

The engine is a December 68 (69 Model year). The frame is from April 69 - still the same model year. Not matching numbers, so will decrease the value of the overall bike somewhat, but it's supposedly one of the best models for old Triumphs.

Post some pictures - see the sticky thread at the top of the Classic Vintage and Veteran page for instructions on how to post pictures. Best idea is to get yourself a Photobucket (or similar) account on the web.

Also, take a look at www.britishspares.com. Some good info on their site, and they're good guys to deal with.
