1963 Triumph 650cc TR6SS Trophy

1963 Triumph 650cc TR6SS Trophy

1963 saw the introduction of the unit-construction engine at Triumph. Now, the crankshaft, transmission and primary-drive components were all combined in the same cases with a redesigned alloy cylinder head with increased fin area, and an extra stud was between the cylinder bores to provide better gasket sealing. This new engine was mounted in a completely redesigned frame with strengthened swingarm pivots and a single front downtube for better high-speed handling.

With major sales targets in the US, the appearance was sporty and improved paint standards with silver base coats, gave the livery some punch.

The motorbike offered

On offer here is a 1963 TR6SS, the SS model features a 2-1 exhaust. A matching-numbers example in its correct Flamboyant Regal Purple top color, just one aspect of an exacting nut-and-bolt restoration. Maintained in show-worthy condition as part of a private collection for the past decade, the bike was subject to a full re-commissioning and runs well. A rare sight as an SS model in a rare color, the bike is sure to be a fine addition to any collection.
