’68 Triumph TR6R – Part III

We’ve made some progress in the last couple of weeks. First, we’ve sourced and sandblasted just about all parts which are to be powder coated black. In the photo below, you can see 47 parts ready to go. Seems to us there should be something on the order of 56 black parts, so next steps will be to compare these parts against our checklist and see what, if anything, is missing.

We’ve also found a fuel tank in our back stock that will work nicely. As you can see below, it’s in rough shape. It’s dented, dirty, rusty, and a nice shade of glittery bluish purple. We’re going to fix all that, as it’s the correct tank for this bike, and should be a nice transformation to document here.
