My son and I just bought a 1961 triumph. The owner said it was a 550 which I've never heard of. It is missing some parts like the gas tank, seat lights etc... How can I tell exactly what model we have? Are there any great manuals that I should get to help us rebuild the bike? Thanks!

Engine number on the left side case. What's it say? Is it unit construction? Then it could be a 500.

You'll want to get a Haynes manual, but it doesn't cover everything. So also download the repair manual as well as parts manual from the Tech section here.
