1968 TR6C matching numbers, purchased this summer, it was a project that started in 2007 and was slowly built. Engine internals all rebuilt, frame painted, original dunlop rims retained as were the mufflers, headpipes are new, front end rebuilt, brand new 930 carb. New wiring harness. Recently purchased paint from Don Hutchinson and other parts for the tank like badges and trim from Skinners as well as another headlight bucket. Starts first kick, fresh and crisp running. New tires. It does leak oil, no news there......$7900 not much to make this a real sharp looking bike.

Very informative spec sheet, and great photos.

You asking price might have been better received at the START of the riding season, rather than right near the END!

Already had some interest, being told they're in need of a quick and easy Winter project. This would be like a one week project for the right person. Thanks for the reply.

Thank you. Going to begin selling off maybe 8-10 bikes this year. My father loved the old british bikes as he raced back in the 60's. He had a particular love for the Goldstar. He passed last month, but we really spent alot of time together and one of the reasons were these bikes. I did go crazy but it was worth it in the end. I'll try to post them here first.

Sorry for the loss of your Dad, by the looks of the shop and the love of bikes I'm sure there's a lot of great memories
