Description This classic British competition motorcycle is a Triumph Trophy TR6C from 1967. The Triumph TR6C Trophy was introduced in 1956 and was named to commemorate the British firms success in ISDT racing. As the years passed, the TR6C evolved more into a road bike, but it still had the pedigree of an off-roader enjoyed by legends like Steve McQueen.The Trophy was considered to be the desert racer of the group, and was actually built because Johnson Motors (Triumphs sole US distributor at the time) requested such a bike to target the increasing number of Southern California based off-road enthusiasts. Theses bikes became known as Desert Sleds.
