    Wow don’t know what to make of this thread. First thoughts either a lucky punt with your stash of spare parts or someone who is more akin to a warehouse.
    Anyway looking forward to seeing your progress

    Have a search on the forum for previous projects @darkman has done and it will give you a bit more of an understanding ;)

    Would I be correct in saying that this will be a basket case, to concourse condition over time. This is going to be a great thread to watch. Let the fun begin. :)

    I found a 67 TR6C that had been converted into a chopper years ago in the US and then forgotten about and stripped down when the engine expired, so i'm going to restore it to original as when it left the factory, luckily i have found most of the original parts i will req other than a few that i'm on the hunt for.

    The end result will be the same as always, better than when it left the factory.
    This thread is like an early Christmas present, thanks once again Darkman for sharing and showing your extraordinary skills at work, quite remarkable!

    Spent a few hours cleaning the filler off the frame and cutting off the rear frame and bodged side stand lug, next job is to fit a new front tank mount and new side stand lug.
