1967 Triumph Trophy Bobber

Ben of Montreal, PQ, Canada, made available these pictures of his gorgeous 1967 Triumph Trophy Bobber which was fully restored. There's no escaping from the fact that this is a British Bobber: Ben Mills airbrushed the Union Jack all over the bike!

Ben: "Bobber TR6R 1967, 650cc with matching numbers. This motorcycle is a full and fresh restoration. All has been redone by Lemoyne Moto, PQ.

The engine was completely rebuilt from A to Z: crank, bearings, cam, piston, clutch and lots more. Electronic "Boyer" ignition and high output alternator.

Frame is powdercoated with bolt-on plunger section. Wheels powdercoated with stainless spokes. Forward controls all stainless."
