The 1970 Triumph TR6 Trophy underwent significant modifications, including a new frame and bodywork made from steel. The swingarm was also custom-built from the same material.

The rear suspension features an ingeniously hidden aftermarket monoshock behind the oil tank. The handmade tail section serves as a rear fender and support for a solo black leather seat with gold stitching.

The front suspension is managed by a set of robust 50 mm Kayaba forks connected to a ventilated twin-leading shoe drum brake for a classic look. Custom triple clamps and a fork brace, doubling as a small front fender, connect the forks to the frame. Vintage Firestone tires fit the rims, complementing the retro aesthetic.

Crafted for optimal functionality and aesthetics, the lighting arrangement incorporates a headlamp ingeniously positioned between the forks and a taillight elegantly affixed to a license plate bracket mounted on the swingarm.

Taking center stage within the cockpit is a seamlessly integrated one-piece handlebar reminiscent of clip-ons, complemented by a compact analog speedometer nestled beneath the top clamp on the left fork tube.

Undergoing a comprehensive revamp, the powertrain, sourced from the TR6 vertical twin lineage, has been meticulously refurbished. Revealing its inner workings, a custom open lower cover showcases the primary drive mechanism. Fueling the engine’s performance is a Mikuni VM32 carburetor, harmonizing with a bespoke stainless-steel exhaust system mounted at a commanding height.
