We started with a dull frame, boxes full of greasy old engine parts, original Rickman tank and body panels that were the wrong color. Every nut and bolt was carefully restored.
This is how the bike came to the shop. The body work was painted the wrong color, and the engine and chassis were in pieces.

1969 Triumph TR6C
Here is a 1969 Triumph TR6C after a full mechanical and cosmetic restoration. The (C) in TR6C designates it as competition/off road enduro and came from the factory with high pipes and knobby tires. This TR6C is a beautiful example of Classic British motorcycle style.
Triumph made quite a few changes to the TR6 line in 1969. It was also the first year Triumph attached the name "Tiger" to the TR6.
In 1969 Triumph started using American threads throughout the TR6 line. New connecting rods, Hepolite pistons and stronger wrist pin were used. The cams were nitrided coated to improve durability. To improve engine lubrication changes were made to the oil pump to increase oil volume. New o-rings were used in various locations to improve sealing.
1970 Triumph TR6R
This Triumph TR6R was bought at auction by the client. It already had a nice cosmetic restoration so the client asked for the engine and all mechanical and electrical systems to be rebuilt.
Take a look at some photos of the rebuild as this classic Triumph is built to specifications offering improved performance and reliability not possible in 1970 when this TR6R first rolled of the assembly line.
This T120R was treated to a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration. Some special parts were fitted including low bars, custom seat and seat cowl to give it a classic cafe racer look.

1967 Triumph T100SC
This T100SC was brought to the shop for a top-end rebuild, carburetor tuning, and electrical work.
In the 60s Triumph started offering a purpose built enduro based on their popular 500cc engine, designated the SC (street Comp). To make the bike suited for off-road duty Triumph ditched the battery and center stand, added larger wheels, high pipes, and lower gearing. Most of the SCs were sent to the U.S. where enduro riding had started to become popular.
The T100SC sold well in the States and made for an agile, competent enduro. Today a well restored T100SC is a great choice for a classic that can be enjoyed on and off the road.
