My first post on this thread, but have enjoyed cruising this page for many years. I found this item some might like to see. Too rich for me, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't love to have it!

Only question I have is the grab rail...I wasn't aware the lifting handle had a chrome grab rail in '67. My "correct" '67 Bonneville never had a grab rail. I thought they were introduced in '68 and fastened to the underside of the seat. Then at some point in '69 the grab rail was added to the lifting handle?

Yes and yes. This bike sat in an enclosed trailer from '71 til 2016. It was then bought by a local icon dirt racer and he didn't get a chance to do much with it until he passed away in the fall of 2020. It was what we call out here in Oregon a "Burn" bike. The Tllimook burn area of the Oregon coast range was/is a popular dirt riding area and bikes were set up like this for that riding. I got the original MOT from the Triumph dealership and the original '67 Oregon title with the bike.
My first motorcycle that I bought in 1969 was a '67 TR6C "Burn" bike. Paid $600 for it.
