    Just the engine is worth the auction price, not to mention the gas tank and meters.

    It's got a bid now; with no reserve, it's as good as gone. Turns out the primary cases are worth $250 as is the gas tank. The rest is free.

    It's a neat project - how hard do you think it would be to put a norton engine back in it?

    Take a norton domi and plop the motor into the matchbox frame and then put that Triumph motor into the Norton featherbed frame. Then sell off the P11 replica and keep the Triton. I like that idea.

    The cases appear to be big bearing alternator cases which are to my eyes the best looking and it has a slickshift box too. The 8 stud top end can be replaced with a ten stud top end and a short rod crank down below and it could be a fun bike.

    Looks a little bit nicer with the tail light housing and front fender. I also rigged a spring for the sidestand.

    you fucked up on the auction because many searchers will never see your listing
    having key search words like tr6ss down in the description makes them invisible to searchers
    you have absolutely useless search words in the title and put bthe good shit in the description epic fail bro
    end the auction do it over
    reason is a mistake in the listing
    it is a totally appropriate thing to do at this time do it now

    It has a bid, I'm not re-listing it. I would NEVER burn an honest bidder like that.

    Somebody will be very happy with their purchase, I think.

    Back when I was in buying mode, I would have taken out a credit union loan and driven across the country (basically, leaving Texas is already half way), to buy TEN of these at this price. The lowest I've ever gotten for a rolling project bike was $1175, and I've sold nearly 30 of them.

    I'm tired, and I'm done with project bikes.

    the action happens in the final moments. Something tells me this isn't selling for $500.

    yes it does but you only have one bid 35 watchers
    i was not suggesting that you ratfuck a bidder
    just dealing with the facts you had a perfectly legitament reason to ernd and relist because you dont know what you are doing thats all
    you mistakedly left out key search words
    if any of you doubt me go ahead and search -Triumph TR6SS-
    SADLY YOUR AUCTION DOES NOT SHOW
    for future listings be sure and put the most applicable search of model descrip possible in the title
    otherwise you are ratfucking yourself out of watchers and potential bidders thats all
    i use snipe but always place a starting bid as well
