triumph hardtail?

So on ebay there is someone that has a 1970 triumph factory hardtail frame for sale. Says it was the only year made. How much validity is in their statement. It is a few hundred bucks making it cheaper than a bolt on kit. Thanks

I seriously doubt that Triumph ever offered a hardtail frame since they went to sprung rear suspensions. For that matter, I can't think of any manufacturer that offered rigid frames in 1970, with the exception of speedway bikes (Jawa), and no one in their right mind would run one of those on the street.

the last hardtail triumph ever made was in 1950 and was a 500cc TRW (trophy) and was originaly designed for military use. The ony hardtails in 1970 were the ones you bought and bolted on. If you can get it cheap they are great bikes to ride and have fun with aside with the constant tuning and the getting used to right side shifting and left side breaking... oh and positive ground. No seriously though, great bikes.

Took a look at that frame. It is a 1970 650 frame with a bolt on hardtail.

checked old archives, no record of even special purpose hardtails in 70. It's probable a $50 bolt on, buy the bike with that value in mind. No collectablity value. What you see is what it's worth. Make sure it's a 650, not a 500.

Thanks for the posts everyone. I will pass on the frame. If he is misleading on the frame, what else could be wrong. Thanks to all once again!!
