Featured this month is Robin’s 1970, 650cc TR6C Triumph.
The Triumph TR6C Trophy Special was produced between 1968 and 1972. In 1970, a total of 1880 were made. The 1970 model originally would have had high pipes – a low pipe version called the TR6R Sport was also offered. Displacement was 649cc in a parallel twin producing about 46 HP at 6500 rpm. It had a 4 speed gear box and drum brakes front and rear and in the USA was marketed as the ‘Desert Sled”. 1970 was the last year before the ‘oil in frame’ models came into production. The original tank colours were Spring Gold (really a green) with a black centre stripe.
