1956 Triumph TR5R

Awesome Street or Track bike! Full race motor and quickly detatchable headlight. A very rare and beautiful machine only made for one year.


  1. Check out those megas ! Classy machine.

  2. Yes it is, only 112 were built and there are probably very few survivors. Jaye Strait from Massachusetts restored one that was pictured in the book "Triumph Racing Motorcycles in America" that has the splayed port, dual carb cylinder head made available in 1957 as well as alloy wheel rims. Definitely another of the best Triumph's ever made.

  3. Saw one in the back of a van yesterday, sweet, too DUMBstruck to ask if I could take pics :(

    Never heard of it!
