1965 Triumph 649cc TR6 SS Trophy Motorcycle Combination
Registration no. DPR 333C
Frame no. TR6 SS DU 23675
Engine no. TR6 SS DU 23675
Success in the International Six Days' Trial (ISDT) in the late 1940s prompted Triumph to adopt the 'Trophy' name for their off-road-styled twins: at first for the 500cc TR5 and then for the 650cc TR6. For 1962, the final year of the traditional 'pre-unit' Triumph twins, the Trophy was designated 'TR6 SS', and that designation was carried over to the new Trophy when Triumph's 650cc models were upgraded to unitary construction for 1963. Registered to the vendor since 1991 and last used in 1995, this TR6 SS has been converted by him for use in off-road competitions, complete with vestigial sidecar (note the Norton Roadholder fork and 'pie crust' front hub/brake). Dry stored for the last 25 years, the machine will need re-commissioning before returning to the dirt. Accompanying paperwork consists of an old-style V5 document and an expired MoT (1994).
