Need help identifying Triumph

Need help identifying Triumph

Postby msh5337 » Fri May 26, 2017 7:07 pm

I came across this ad today and am curious if anyone can tell me what this bike is.

https://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/mcy/6147142380.html

I texted the guy and he says that the engine is a T110. But I don't think any T110s had that rear frame loop. I'm guessing it's a basket case, but what? What other Triumph frame would fit that engine?

YOUR TO LATE . Ive Bought It . !

Just Kidding . But Be Quick .

Its a 60 - 62 Dual down toob , so you can pretend your steve Mc queen .

The 69- 70 , & Trident seat fit straight on .So deadshit would restore it to STOCK . But as its a CUASTOM DESERT SLED , its heritage & Value ( other than monetary )
is some sod has set it up for RACING . So DONT FUDGE IT UP . Also check valve clearance BEFORE dismantling , to get a idea of cam specs .

( Note the Hippies spiffing newly laundered Jacket . and the Chain Guard . Of to see Bob Dylan . hence the securing aparatus )
A 68 Pear Flank Crankshaft ( Thruxton & likely T120TT fitment ) & ported head , itll run past 8.000 with a tooned Ex Haust system . :)

Thats one has a fancy front end . Id go for a 66 - 70 Slim Line Tank , Tho a 71 on & T150 tank is the same . nearly ( badges )
the TTs ran the slimline . The front guards shit , but'd keep the dirt out of your teeth .

Front Tyre looks like a Perrelli Licquerish . V good dirt track , not so hot on tarmac.

Also that Front Brake is a good sensitive dirt set up . DONT toss It . :(

GETTA TO KNOW IT , before you go putting your personal influance on it .

Itll have the Dual tubes under the tank . ( 61 - 62 ) Not ONE . only the single tube ones crack up .
Frame Geometry is modern Road Race . :idea: about 24.5 Deg Rake , 90 ish + Trail .

Decent Dual Damed rear shocks'd do wonders .

Note the Rear Sub Frame ! .ImageImage

Id Say youve got a bout FIVE MINUTES , before somebody beats you to it .

Blooddy near a replica .Image

And use 1 3/4 pipes , or therell be TROUBLE . Big Troble if I get hold of you . :D

Oh man, you've got me excited about this! Thanks for the help! I couldn't for the life of me figure out what it was. I'm going to go take a look at it first thing in the morning. I'll let you know how it goes!!
