Hello all, I want to post some pics of my latest bike but the page tells me to enter the URL of the picture I want to post.
The picture is on my laptop, I don't think it has a URL. Can anyone help me?
Thanks,
John

Okay, here's my first try. [img]https://postimg.cc/jDbLyDGM[/img]
This is my latest Triumph, it is the culmination of a 20 year desire for a straight, unmodified 1967 TR6C. A bit of background:
My first Triumph was a 1967 TR6C that some Easy Rider wannabe had chopped up and welded up a hard tail to the frame, tossed the front forks and wheel, fuel and oil tanks, seat, light, etc. aTt. After dragging it all over the country with my many moves I started researching Triumph motorcycles and happened upon a picture of a stock TR6C. I immediately decided that I wanted to restore my bike to its original condition. This decision was back burnered due to life and career demands but it was always on my bucket list. More Triumphs were acquired, a 1973 T140V, 2 1973 Tridents and then a couple of Harleys. The Bonneville and Tridents are gone, the Harleys are collecting dust in my shop (1982 Low Rider and 1977 iron-head Sportster). I found a nicely restored 1967 TR6R and a slightly modified 1967 T120R that I bought and ride but I have always lusted for a stock TR6C.
I am now retired and have the time and means to restore my Trophy. I began stripping the frame and realized that the PO had also sawn off the front fuel tank mount tabs and the backbone brace that once held the coils and upper engine mounts. The cutting and welding of the rear of the frame to incorporate the swing arm as part of the hard tail have pretty much precluded bringing the frame back to stock. I have a couple of spare frames that would work but I want a matching numbers bike. This dilemma has put the restoration on the back burner, I am trying to figure out how to splice the original steering head with the original VIN onto the spare frame. That is beyond my welding skills and a pro welder that I know has told me that the brazing original to the frame could contaminate any welds that we may try to apply to splice the frame together.
I had started looking for a clean, stock ’67 Trophy about 15 years before I retired. I looked at a lot of them but I could never find one that didn’t have rounded-off bolts and nuts or chain damaged cases or any number of other detractors that deterred me from buying them. Until last week, that is.
I was looking at eBay auctions searching TR6Cs and this bike was listed. I was very interested and I put it on my watch list with the intention to bid at the very end of the auction. Life intervened and I missed the deadline. I brought up the auction because I was curious as to what was the winning bid. To my complete surprise there were no bids! Over 40 people had put it on their watch list but no one had placed a bid. I messaged the seller and asked if he would re-list the bike. He told me that he had received a lot of inquiries about the bike after the auction ended and he was accepting offers. He was a very personable individual on the phone and I immediately formed the impression that he was an honest man. I made him an offer based exclusively on the pictures from the auction and my conversation with him, contingent with an inspection of the bike. He countered with an amount a bit higher than my offer and I accepted. This occurred last Wednesday. The next day I started out on the 740 mile drive to see the bike. It turns out that the seller had bought the bike from an older gentleman who had owned it for years and garaged it in a climate controlled area. He had not done any wrenching on it other than regular tuneups and oil changes and it was in stunningly fine mechanical shape. The years had faded the paint and put a patina overall, but the bike is 99% original and correct! The only parts missing are the exhaust shields, the horn and the horn button. Everything else is present and correct. Very sadly, the previous owner had only sold it when he could no longer kickstart it. I can’t wait to get it home and in my shop.
The seller turned out to be as honest as I had surmised, during the intervening time between accepting my offer and my arrival he had received a few offers that were higher than mine. He told me that he was a man of his word and he stuck by our deal. He is a first-rate individual and I am proud to know him.

Open your post and paste the url from postimage.

Some messageboards you have to delete the "s" in both https in the address, but I believe you dont have to for this board

Wow! That’s a beauty! Thanks for sharing.
I am leaving the girlfriend’s house in FL this AM so after I get home I will get a pic of the inside of the headlight. I am hoping it will be as per original, I am optimistic, the area under the seat still has the plastic tool tray.
That repair is amazing, my 1968 T120 has damage there. Any advice about how you did the repair would be much appreciated, ie: what particular alloy did you use for the patch, how you replicated the casting finish, etc.
Thanks again!

I took it to guy who welds aluminum for custom boats tuna tower etc. I cleaned the crap out of it first. Then he had a piece of aluminum about a 1/4 inch thick. He beveled it , then tig welded it in. Then I took it home and filed it , and dremeled it. After that I got a little center punch and tapped it to make casting dimples. The engine was apart at the time.

That break is a common Triumph problem, especially with guys who want to do "wheelies".

The chain breaks, wads up, and pops the case. My cousin "wheelie king Mike" had that result.

MORAL: Either use better chain and replace it often, or don't do "wheelies."

I had to go with aftermarket coils. They were rotted. I also bought a nos 6ca points plate. The 4ca is a bitch to adjust , plus the new condensers don’t fit.i put the new condensers on the coil mounts Made it a lot easier to get the timing right. It always starts 1st or 2nd kick.
