This fully restored technically “One Owner” Triumph has been lovingly restored and it is now time to find a new home for it.   I have attached notes from its owner on what was done and by whom, it is stunning in person.

Here is what the owner told us about it: .

Triumph 1971 Tr6r
Fully restored as near to factory (or better) original as possible. Numbers perfect. 11,587 original miles. Has been in boxes for the last 32 years. All components that were painted black are powder coated black. All components that were painted grey are powder coated grey with a slight hint of metallic but not flashy. Wheel hubs/brake backing plated are powder coated outside and inside. Powder coating process is a primer and then top coat. All fasteners have been replaced with either polished stainless or chrome plated. Original seat has been reconditioned.  Gas tank, front and rear fenders have been refinished by Don Hutchinson Cycle using a polyurethane base coat/top coat. Don is well known for having created a database of colors for every model and year of Triumph since 1946 and for knowing exactly how the stripes and scallops were originally. The Pacific Blue and White are accented with a Gold stripe. New: stainless steel rims, stainless steel spokes, chrome spoke nipples, wheel bearings, steering head bearings, swing arm bushings, fork stantions, wiring harness (cloth), exhaust headers/crossover/mufflers, coils, condensers, points, handle bars, front brake cable, speedo cable, throttle body/throttle cable, clutch cable, handle bar grips, carburetor air choke cable/lever, taillight bracket/light, fuel petcocks, fuel hoses, indicator lights, instrument lights. Engine complete refreshed with 40 over pistons/rings, big end bearings, sludge tube, primary chain, clutch pack, valves lapped, seals and gaskets. Oil filter in-frame conversion installed. Carburetor is original 30mm Amal. Body of carb was trued and slide is sleeved to prevent galling.

History of
1971 Triumph TR6R Tiger GE27096
(as known to Mel)
G = June
E = 1971
Original owner licensed GE27096 in Montana. Date of purchase is not known and city of licensing is not known.  Second owner, Carl, obtained GE27096 in the mid 1980’s. Actual date not known. Carl owned Harley Davidson motorcycles and always wanted a Triumph. Carl disassembled GE27096 in approximately 1984, with the intent of painting it. Knowing Carl as a casual friend I offered to help re-assemble the bike should he need assistance. In 1987, Carl was relocating due to employment and sold GE27096 to me. GE27096 was completely disassembled. Boxes of parts, nuts, bolts, washers, tubing, wiring, etc. The motor was not in the frame and in a varied state of disassembly, the frame and wheels were disassembled, the gas tank was primer painted with minor denting, the carburetor was disassembled, the wiring was “highly modified”, and a considerable number of parts were missing or “customized”.   Carl had the signed title from the original owner in Montana, but had not changed the title to his name. Therefore, he did not legally own GE27096. I was successful in transferring the title to my name in 1988. The reassembly project began by having the frame, swing arm, air box assembly, and rear fender powder coated by a shop in Coeur d’Alene Idaho. Due to having other projects and commitments, that is far as the reassembly went for years. GE27096 was moved and stored in heated garages until I sold it in 2003 to a friend, Ryan, who intended to reassemble it. Ryan did nothing to the bike, but store it in boxes in a heated garage until he sold it to another friend of mine, Bil, in approximately 2006. Bil stored the bike in heated garages and moved it several times to different locations, but no reassembly ever took place. I offered to assist Bil in the reassembly project. However, Bil decided to sell GE27096 back to me on March 31, 2016, in boxes. Along with the boxes of parts, Bil provided the three-ring binder copy of the shop manual that I had given to Ryan.  In the binder front cover was the title that I had signed over to Ryan in 2003. Since neither Ryan nor Bil transferred the title to either of their names, I was legally still the owner. Upon purchasing GE27096 from Bil, I successfully obtained a new title as the second legal owner.  Since GE27096 had been in boxes for approximately 32 years, it did not seem fitting to just reassemble her. So, with 11,587 original miles on the original odometer, on April 5, 2016, I began a  complete restoration, using as many of the original parts as possible and in some cases with the original patina. With noted exceptions, every part is either powder coated, chrome, or polished stainless. Naturally, the gas tank and fenders are painted blue/white with gold pin striping using the best polyurethane base coat/clear coat products available. A Triumph restoration shop, Don Hutchinson Cycle in Wakefield, Massachusetts, provided the painting to factory color codes and details. The factory color scheme of black and silver/grey frame, suspension, wheel hubs, and other body work was adhered to as closely as my research provided.
