Description

1964 Triumph 6T, ex-police matching numbers with V5C

Here is a real “time-capsule” of a classic motorcycle. An ex-police Thunderbird 6T from 1964 in excellent running order and remarkably good cosmetic condition being very original and unrestored.

It is a very good, easy starter. The engine sounds really good with no smoke. It ticks over nicely. It rides really well, crisp, lively free revving engine and with very good brakes. Gearbox and clutch are all good. Charging system is working well. Full charging is brought in manually with a toggle switch which I think was an idea to do with running the police radio. (you can have full charging even with lights off)

Speedometer is working well, chronometric showing a mileage of 46000.

The bike comes with V5C registration document, original registration 309 KOU. Date of registration is 10th March 1964.

Frame number DU9022, engine number 6T DU 9022. Registered as Historic Vehicle, therefore road tax is free and bike is MOT exempt.

Cosmetically the bike is generally very nice original unrestored condition. Obviously the paint is quite old and a bit dull in places but that is the unmistakable and quite pleasing patina of a genuine unrestored bike.

Both wheel rims have excellent chrome and are both the original Dunlop items.

Spokes are original dull, “rustless” type in very sound condition. The tyres are both OK, front is Avon ribbed Speedmaster 50% worn and rear is Avon SM MKII about 33% worn.

There are no broken fins on the barrel but there is one very small chip on the lower fin of head on right side.

Side stand and centre stand are both fitted and in good order.

Exhaust system is practically as new. Seat is old original, quite sound but does have a split in cover.

All in all this is a wonderful opportunity to own a really classic piece of British motorcycle history in good running useable condition.

Don't miss this lovely old Thunderbird.
