You need TWO parts books, one for the engine, one for the chassis, running gear & cycle parts.

You may have a re-stamped frame as that serial number would indicate they should be removeable triangles.
NORTSTER1974 wrote:Hi All,
I was looking for a little help in identifying a Triumph frame I have so that I can order the correct fork tubes, bushings, bearings, seals, etc. as the set on the bike are extended and pitted. I found the " Bike " in my neighbors basement where it had been sitting since 1978. $200...Just a roller. Nowhere near complete, pretty much a starting point for a hard tail, bar hopping, rat bike. He knew nothing about it, except that it belonged to his brother who passed 38 years ago. It has a title which matches the #'s on the motor. They don't cross match with any data found on the internet, as far as engines go. I was told it may have been a replacement set of cases from the factory. I'm not concerned about the motor, which has since been rebuilt from the cases up. As I understand the numbers on the frame say it was built in November 1969, so it would be a 1970 model bike. So do I order parts for a 1970 front end or a 1969 front end, or are they the same? Sorry I have no pics of the front end at this time, just the frame #'s. Pics of engine, oil tank, frame #'s, front wheel enclosed. The rear wheel is the spool type hub. 19" rims front and rear. Thank you in advance for any info on the frame and what year I should order parts for.
