Default 1970 Trophy tr6p "Saint"

Just wrestled this off an old bloke who squeezed every last cent from me, but I won in the end, needs some work. Ha!

The frame number tells me its an Australian 1970 tr6p "Saint" which were the police bikes in Australia at the time.

The engine cases are empty. I have 80% of the gearbox, the head is complete, but no crank, pistons, clutch. Its basically a collection of parts - most of which need replacing. I noticed it has the triangle front engine mounts for easy engine removal, and slimline tank (that looks pretty buggered).

I need bottom end parts so if anyone has some T120 parts available and willing to send to Australia...

Glad i finally have a non-jap project to contribute.

Good start. What's the plans for the build? What style are you going to build it?
I'm in Australia so I'll have a look in my boxes of left overs a let you know what I've got.

Looks like alot more than a collection of parts.
Congrats!
Which direction are you going with it?

You forgot to ask for my opinion, but that's all right. Keep the swingarm.

Nice bike. I believe SAINT stands for Stop Anything In No Time, or something, right?

Thanks all -

@RidingHood - a few mates have suggested Dunsters to me so ill def do that. The PO suggested they may even have a built engine that I could buy which would speed things up in terms of getting the bike moving. At the very least they may be able to help me source some bottom end parts. Postage from the states is a killer.

In terms of look and direction - Ill get the engine 100% and the frame powdercoated then see where im at. The Saint bikes were black - but they also had a weird flat/notepad tank design that I am not particularly interest in recreating.

I'd prefer full dag. Definitely no hardtail. No desire for cafe racer or the like. but the shape of the current hangers are pretty neat. Dual carb, low pipes. black fenders maybe rather than chrome.

Received the Aerco 750cc kit to replace the standard 650 barrels, very well made and keeps the same shape and external appearance as the stock barrels. Came with Hepolite pistons, rings, pins, gaskets.

Also bought a brand new set of Amal premier carbs to make my life easy (i hope). Just about to hit the button on a big order from the UK that includes seat, harness, gauges (in kph), handlebars, rear shocks, gaskets, brackets etc

@RidingHood The engine is down at Dunsters now - they are gathering bits for the bottom end, they have sorted me for crank, conrods and gearbox. Im stoked.

So im heading "bonneville with go fast-bits" rather than tr6p police replica.

Not to hijack your thread but this is my 70 TR6P I built. It's matching numbers and I probably should have restored it but I cut everything off it I didn't need so it's gonna be a hard one to restore if someone wants to.
I actually drove to Canberra to get mine.
Nice build by the way. That's my plan for another build is to jam it full of go fast bits and build a cafe racer.

While I like the idea of a restored 1970 Bonneville the idea of a restored police bike with fairing and small seat intrigues me much more.

Nice score!
I've got a complete primary (brand new, UK made) clutch basket, new Reynolds primary chain, new clutch plates, both metal and fibre, new pressure plate, springs, etc. I just switched over to a Bob Newby belt drive. All the parts have less than 600 miles on them.

feels like forever but some progress. Balanced crank installed and bottom end pinned together. Now to install the Aerco 750 cylinders pistons and cam gears.

I have also bought some new stainless steel rims and spokes from the UK, so i will get to work on blasting and painting the hubs.
