Our 1968 Triumph TR6R Tiger 650 is finished!

Back in early February, we began by sharing photos of the bike in its then-current state, and outlining our plan of attack.

By late February, we’d sandblasted our frame. In early March, we’d sandblasted all other parts to be powdercoated, and had sourced an original fuel tank.

As we moved towards April, the powdercoating was completed, our tank was prepped for paint, and we’d begun the enjoyable task of filling our parts table with new and NOS components.

In April and May, we continued sourcing rare parts, and painted the tank to exactly match the original.

Since that time, we’ve been busily assembling the engine, and in turn, the completed machine featured here. It is an outstanding motorbike in every way. The engine growls, the suspension and controls are precisely calibrated, and the bike is every bit as beautiful as we’d originally envisioned.

As the build of this bike progressed, we were pleased to arrange to deliver it to its new owner immediately on completion, so it is not available for sale. However, we’ve already begun restoration on a 1970 Bonneville, which is available to build to customer specification.
