1978 Triumph Trophy 650cc. Registration number BDV 420T. Frame number KA 12756. Engine number TR6R AG 46456 (1972).
ISDT success in the late 1940s prompted Triumph to adopt the Trophy name for their off-road styled twins. But although it retained its sporting character, the model became more of a roadster as time passed, ending up, in effect, as a single-carburettor Bonneville. With the launch of BSA-Triumph’s much revised ‘oil-in-frame’ range in November 1970, the ‘Tiger’ name was revived for the TR6R roadster while the TR6C street scrambler version continued to be known as the ‘Trophy’.
This example uses a later 1978 frame with an earlier TR6R engine from c.1972 and has been built a street scrambler.
The MOT history goes back to 2010 when this speedo was fitted and it has seen gentle use over the years, the current mileage being 429 miles. Running recently, we would always recommend safety checks before road use.
