Hey guys......looking for inspiration. Wondering if anyone has any pictures of any Triumph bobber builds (pre unit engine) using an original 1960 -1962 duplex frame?

Did a cc search but didn't see any build threads with your specific request.

Here are a few inspirational photos of '60-'62 pre-units from Angry Monkey Motorcycles:

This is Matt's 1960 Bonneville, and he gave us free reign to build it like it needed to be built. Gonzo features chopped, flat-bottomed, and narrowed Fat Bob tanks, one-off finned primary covers, finned timing cover, and new thousand-piece twisty exhaust pipes:

This '62 Triumph Bonneville... was featured in "The Horse Backstreet Choppers" August/September 2014, issue #142.

This 1961 Triumph T110. It got a top-shelf European-made HD replica springer and some custom-made, split, gas tanks, that were made made in-house, among other things.

"Frau Blucher" is a 1960 Triumph T6R, and was completed for a client on the East Coast. Rich killed on the paint! This bike was featured in a four-page article in "The Horse Backstreet Choppers" magazine, Issue #122 September 2012.

"Low Tide Larry" is a 1960 Triumph TR6 pre-unit 650cc, and is now in Japan with its new owner. LTL was also featured in the Feb 2010 issue #95 "The Horse, Backstreet Choppers" magazine.
