1965 Triumph TR6 Trophy

Frame no. TR6 DU17240
Engine no. TR6 DU17240

The Triumph TR6 was the prime, and perhaps last, example of the all-around motorcycle. It was fully capable of being raced successfully on America's mud or desert tracks, or ridden daily on errands with minimal maintenance. With a single carburetor to maintain, many consider the Trophy a more desirable machine for actual road use than its more famous sister the Bonneville, as their performance is nearly equal in real-world terms, although the Bonnie certainly pulls away at over 80mph. But not everyone cared about performance over 80mph, and simply enjoyed the thrilling torque and great all-around handling and utility of the 650cc Triumph twin, without the regular hassle of synchronizing two carbs.

This 1965 Triumph TR6 is that rarest of breeds; a documented one-owner machine from new, sold by the original owner, and still in its original paint. It was purchased by Bernie McGarrah at Ray's Cycle Center in Greenfield, Massachusets, and the mileage shown is correct.
