This bike has been owned for about 10 years by a friend who sadly died recently and is now being sold by the family along with his other bikes. At purchase the bike had been beautifully restored cosmetically and mechanically between 2007 and 2010 by the previous owner. Mike was the 9th owner.
It has been used extensively since then and is perhaps not quite so pristine but still a very handsome machine. I have witnessed it in use on many VMCC runs including an End-End in 2013 and a trip to Montlerey in France in May 2019. Never missed a beat.
The bike had about 12k on the odometer when restored and is now showing 24258. Engine and frame number match – DU23686 which confirm it as a 1965 model towards the end of that production year. However, the bike was not registered until August 1966 as JBU642D and is finished in 1966 colours. The front brake plate is the much improved later TLS type but the original single cam brake plate will come with it.
It has Boyer electronic ignition running a 12v system with recent AGM battery which was found fully charged even though the bike has been standing since October 2019. The bike is now classed as historic so is tax free and MoT exempt but the MoT history up to 22k miles can be viewed on the DVLA website.
We only gave it gave it a quick dust off before we took the pictures, It will clean up much better given more time. The bike started easily (once we found the fuse had been removed) with no smoke sounding good and ready to ride away.
There were two things noted: The rear tyre is an Avon SM and is legal but is probably close to replacement time (front is fine) and some chrome is peeling from the back of the offside silencer. There are no holes and it’s perfectly sound but obviously detracts from the overall appearance though it is really only visible when standing above the bike. This silencer was fitted at restoration. The near side silencer was replaced in 2014 and is fine. Pictures of both are available.
There is a considerable volume of paperwork which will come with the bike. There are manuals, parts list and an owners handbook plus MoT’s going back to 1997. Plus a wadge of receipts totalling well over £1000 for parts purchased for its subsequent restoration. These do not include many of the items now fitted to the bike such as the later tls brake plate, nor the paintwork. A record of service shows it was last done in Feb 2019 at 23719 presumably for the Montlerey trip– mileage now 24258 so little used since.
Overall a well sorted example of a popular and sought after machine. UK versions of these bikes are relatively rare as most were exported to the USA as Bonnevilles, this is one of only 224 1965 UK TR6 models according to the VMCC marque specialist.
The bike is located in Neston, Wiltshire and viewing can be arranged.
