Found me not one but two Pre Unit Triumphs I've always wanted one. Buddy of mine has had these collecting dust since the 70'S.... Wife named the Thunderbird "Phoenix" after I sent her the cell pics good name as it will rise once again the Tr6 will be on the lift right after.
Finally my 1969 t120r has some brit buds to hang in the garage with!

Nice score on the pair. Now you get to enter the realm of non-existent pre-unit bits and pieces.:eek: Period customs would be very cool with those two.

Not sure if I like the idea of having springs inside the rear wheel may have to swap that out for a good old solid rear wheel for the 6T we'll see once I get it tore down.

Let me know. Ive got a couple of rigid solid hubbed wheels around here.

'51 6T I picked up a few years ago, waiting for its turn to come up in the project list!

The front brake on mine is a later 8" style with scoops. It also has a 1 gallon oil tank in it and a competition tank. I was planning on setting it up as an AHRMA class C racer.
I have several pre-unit projects with a severe lack of time and money right now!!:(
