Default Help! unusual triumph R rigid frame

I can't peg this frame. the post is different than most and so are the motor/ tranny mount positions. It is stamped with an R after the serial number. I believe it was a 1956 number. Oh yes, I am a new member, long time lurker.

You're most likely not going to get much response in this section as it's for intros. The intros are to tell about yourself, what you do, what you ride, projects, etc.

Tell us more about yourself and then post up your questions about the frame on the main board.

Welcome to the JJ.

I'm working on a 1959 tr6 that I'm trying to do a period custom/streetracer build on. I currently ride a 1952 Allstate Vespa, a1965 Honda CB160 and a 1972 Honda Cb750 with a CR750 build. I picked up this rigid frame because it was a rigid triumph frame. Now I'm trying to figure out why it is built this way. I'll post to the main board.

It's a swingarm frame with an earlier rigid section modified to fit.
