1960 Triumph TR6

I restored this 1960 Triumph TR6 back in 2004, it was sold at auction and is now in a collection in Florida, the TR6 was very successful for Triumph, introduced in 1956 it went on to sweep up at racing events in the Deserts of Southern California as well as other Scrambles events, it was the bike of choice for Bud Ekins who notched up many victories at these events, Ekins was a master of the Desert. The single Carburetor was preferred over the Bonneville as the additional Carb on the T120 held no advantage in the Dirt. Triumph introduced the Duplex Frame in 1960 although it only lasted two years before the introduction if the Unit Construction engine in 1963.
