Hi Folks,

Yesterday I went to look at a Sportster for sale and the owner showed me his assortment of bikes, including what appears to be a '72 TR6R built into an original TT racer. He's looking to sell it, so I offered to post it here.

The provenance is a little unclear, but he told me it has never been registered as it was built as a race bike from new. I did confirm the numbers match and the serial number starts with NG, which I think indicates a bike assembled in late '71 and sold as a '72.

I didn't spend enough time looking at the bike, but what I can see from this picture he sent me today, it was the real deal...new front end (Cerriani forks?), pretty serious front brake, left-hand brake lever, custom swing arm and rear brake, shouldered rims...

He hasn't listed it for sale yet. If interested, feel free to call him directly. He's thinking in the range of $5K for the bike. His name is John (928) 230-9999 in Phoenix. Good guy.

See the image of the bike later in this thread....



Cheers,

Dale

Hi Dale,

file:///Users/Dale/Desktop/IMG_0548-preview%20copy.jpg
This is a file located on your computer (file:///)
Only hackers should be able to see that ;-)

The file needs to be uploaded to a web server, so the address begins with https://
You can upload to Britbike, (e.g. use their web server) if you have upgraded your membership from basic member.
Or there are photo sharing websites like Postimage or Imgur that can be used.

Many thanks Hugh.

I uploaded the image to Google Photos and edited my original post by placing the link into the body of the post using the "add photo" feature of the forum. Looks like the link works when I open it...hope it works for others.

One more question: Is there a way to place an image directly into the post rather than a link to the image?

Cheers,

Dale

Photo links don't work for me.

Use a third party Hosting site like Post Images.

Google might not be the best host.
You have to have an account to view photos.
Also, that url has no file type specified at the end of the url. (i.e. .jpg or .png)

Easiest is to upgrade membership so you can use the Attachment Manager to drag and drop files directly from your desktop and embed them in the post.

Thanks again Hugh. Wasn't aware Google pix were not accessible unless you have a Google account. You referred to "Full Editor > Post Options > Attachment Manager" I assume this is the path to add an image directly to the post? How do I get to "Full Editor"? Is there a simple tutorial on the forum I can go to so I don't use valuable space in this thread? Apologies for this diversion.

You have to have an upgraded membership to access the full editing capabilities.
A "Use Full Editor" button will be one of the choices in the "Reply" area.
Upgrade your membership is just above the Register / Log in bar at the top of the forum.

Hugh, I just upgraded my membership. I now see the "Use Full Editor" button, and "Post Options" window on the Full Editor page, but do not see "Attachment Manager"...just "HTML is disabled" and "UBBCode is enabled". Ugh.

Nope. It has everything shown there with the exception of the "Attachment" bit.

(I'd show you a screen shot if I could upload an image!) (sorry, couldn't resist!)

Hmm. Reached the end of my knowledge base.
Any moderators handy?

Here's the image of the '72 TT race bike I've been referring to.

Looks like my image upload is working now. Thanks to everyone for their help sorting this out.

Nifty looking race bike. It would be GREAT to know the bike's racing provenance/heritage. It would possibly reveal the value of the internals...

It would indeed be interesting to know about this bike's history. John didn't really know much about it (he's not particularly a "Triumph Guy" --- he thought it was a '69 model bike). But I'm sure he could point interested parties toward someone who could fill in the blanks. (He may even offer a package deal with his '00 Sportster 1200S which is in pretty good shape!)
