The TR6 Trophy is a motorcycle that was made by Triumph, in Meriden, from 1956 to 1973, when it was replaced by the five-speed 750-cc Triumph Tiger TR7V. During this time, it was a successful model, particularly in the US. The competition variant, popularly known as the ‘desert sled’, won numerous competitions throughout the late 1950s and 1960s. The bike’s appearance in The Great Escape and Steve McQueen’s fondness for the model are well known.
This is a very nice example of this now much sought after model. The TR6 was rebuilt by its last owner and runs very nicely, and is said to be a pleasure to ride. This wonderful bike has only become available to the passing of the previous owner. We are sure if you are seeking a TR6 then this lovely example is not to be missed.
