    my research engin rebuild $ 3000
    paint $ 1000
    bits and peces $ 1000


    but then again what do i know, im sure there are a lot of experienced ppl here
    Not quite up to condition of that one shown Benny

    Do you know what year it is davros? looks 68 or 69 ( If has 3 bolt engine mount triangle, which from pics is hard to see, then is 1970) and do need to get numbers as its a better investment if there matching..

    I think number will show on engine and have a series of triumph stamps over it
    I would say 5K is a fair price considering you have no idea of engine compression. 4k or below would be a bargain!

    Remove 1k if not matching numbers 4K fair 3K or below bargain

    Some great info here re Trophys Davros >> http://forums.ratscafe.org/showthrea...Meriden+TROPHY

    I now have it on good advice of a WUZZY friend of mine that it is a 1970 due to the crankcase breather & correct balanced header pipes .

    But, the bike has a front hubcap from 1968 so it may have had a front end change

    gotta get the VIN Davros

    I have also just found out that the TR6P has another 4 number stamp on them from factory. Not sure why this is or if that is with every single one. But will try to find out

    Any luck re VIN Davros?

    No Dave, the additional numbers were stamped on by the NSW police garage before delivery to the local divisions. So many TR6P's don't have the additional numbers, only on NSW bikes.
    As stated in PM, my comments on this subject are a combination of my and a mates memory from the time but he was a NSW police M/C officer.

    Well, I may have a 'Barny' come my way - looking into this one.
    My approach is to ask around and see what are the pros n cons plus
    what would be a bargain/reasonable/OK price to pay for it?
    Then I guess, I need to add up the cost to resore and think of the end result
    and it's worth? ( yes, not just value)
    Feel free to comment. - More pics ......................
    So is anything more happening re this Davros?

    My offer of a T/bird still stands :-)

    Triumph Motorcycle Dating service

    We are accredited by the DVLA to issue Certificates of Age on Triumph motorcycles.

    If you have an old Triumph motorcycle that has never been registered, or one that the DVLA do not have any records for, and you wish to retain the original (or obtain an age-related) registration number plate then you need this service.

    Back in 1974, the DVLA started computerising vehicle registrations. Before then registrations were carried out by County Councils or Borough Councils, but Centralised Registration pulled all these records together onto a computerised system. Of course, many registrations were lost or not transfered by the various councils, and when all the old records had finally been entered (by about 1980) there were still many vehicles that were not on the new register.

    In order to retain an original (or obtain an age-related) registration number, you first need to apply for a Dating Certificate from the appropriate vehicle enthusiasts club - these are listed in the DVLA leaflet V765/1. For Triumph motorcycles, the TOMCC is the authorised vehicle enthusiasts club.

    To apply for a Date Certificate for your Triumph motor cycle you need to get together as much documentation about your machine as possible, and as many photos as you can get your hands on. As a minimum you should have photos of both sides of the bike, the Engine Number, and the Frame Number. If you have any original Bills of Sale or Service documents then this will make the job much easier. In fact, any dated information you can supply on your machine will make your case that much stronger.

    Once you have got all your evidence you need to send it to the Club's Machine Registrar along with your payment. The service costs 5.00 for members of the Club and 22.50 for non-members (cheques payable to Triumph Owners MCC please). If you are a non-member requesting a Date Certificate, then why not also join the Club for a year (17.5) and get the dating service at members' rates (5) - it costs the same!

    After obtaining your Dating Certificate, you can send it along with the appropriate forms to the DVLA to obtain your authorisation to use the original registration number. More information about registering your motorcycle can be obtained from the DirectGov web site.

    The TOMCC Machine Registrar is the person responsible for issuing Dating Certificates. The current Machine Registrar is: Richard Wheadon (Kirkby House, Smannell, ANDOVER, SP11 6JW, UK). If you have any queries about this service, please use the contact form. Please send a C4 envelope with a large-letter stamp with your Dating Certificate requests.

    Tardiness

    All,
    Forgive my inaction on this.
    The bike is "still in the Barn" but my mate has not contacted his brother
    in Dubai who owns said Trophy.

    Good prompt to get back in touch with him.
    Cheersh,
    Davros (Dave)
