1968 Tri­umph Tro­phy 650

Performance Bikes (UK) - - The Garage -

‘This is ac­tu­ally a TR6-R, which was the road ver­sion, but I re­built it as a TR6-C, which is the com­pe­ti­tion ver­sion. It has high pipes, off-road tyres, stain­less guards, etc, and has a day­light-only MoT. It was in boxes of bits and took about 18 months to com­plete. On a sunny day it is a de­light to ride on the roads, but I can’t imag­ine racing them in the desert like they used to. In­ter­est­ingly, this is the same model as used in The Great Es­cape jump.’
