Gorgeous Tiger....

Is the other 650 a C model with low pipes...? Going by the headlight and pegs... Just curious. Appears to be a Bonnie head too.

Nice pair...

Yes it is a 70 tr6c and unfortunately the high pipes are gone. Single carb , no bonnie head. I was going to make it my winter project but stumbled on the 70 tr6r and decided to put the others up for sale.

Its a long ways from its original splendor. But, she could get there again. It does run and ride , so its mostly cosmetics.

I would love to have a matched pair of 1970 tr6's. I really hate to sell the c as you dont see them very often. Its a matching numbers bike as well.

So sell the Cub and bring the C back to match the R. What an opportunity to keep both.
I am not trying to spend your money but the '70 is (in my humble opinion) the last of the best as you are well aware.


Either way, good luck with the sale and the outcome, you have a cool stable there.


Best,
Rob

Yep. That's pretty sweet. Probably a good thing it's on the other coast from me- I might be thinking about it!

Say Hi to Isaac for me... I am just a casual visitor at the shop but I drop in there whenever I'm in town. They have regular Vintage Motorcycle nights at places like the Tower bar, great time, great folks...

I'll be back out in a week and I cannot wait.
Gettin' friggin' cold here in Maine...

The shop is doing some very good work.


Best,
Rob

Whassup?

Wow, no BritBike action any time recently? Cold as a witch's titty here in Pennsyltuckey. Many of my friends in Merry Ol England were out for a jaunt or two around the holidays- year end rides, New Year's Run, etc. Here's a couple links to some nice Winter reading, from my fave forum, BritBike.com:

Cheers, y'all. Happy 2013, here's to a safe year of Brit Biking.

So does modern BritBike action count???? Rode the Tiger 800 about every weekend up till Christmas....the vintage stuff....not so much....

Now it is cold and snow covered around here....not conducive to any type of bike at least not for me....

But I am making progress on the M33! It could be a runner this spring

A few from the Vincent rally this past fall.





















And a side trip to the Norton shop.









And a few more from shows and rides near Seattle.
