Never having had a trophy before I couldn't resist this early basket case. It's a rolling chassis, engine bottom end and bizarrely three cylinder heads. The best of the heads is a later model head with three small bolt holes on the leading (exhaust)edge. The earlier bottom end doesn't have the corresponding threaded sockets for the bolts to go into. Any reason I can't use the later head on the earlier crankcase?
Secondly, my box of bits came with only 8 cylinder head bolts. I need 10. I have a box of Daytona 900 bits including some spare Daytona cylinder head bolts. These look perfect but are slightly shorter than the original trophy bolts. Any issues with using these?

Dave, try the model specific forums or problem solving page - you won't get much sense out of the Arms today or any other for that matter!:tongueout:

I bought a 1200 Trophy about 5 years ago, £500 running with MOT.
I bought it to turn into a 1200 Thunderbird.
I put the tank, seat, fairing, lights, exhaust etc up on eBay and didn't manage to sell any of it.
They are not sought after or worth much so don't spend too much on it.
Head gasket for the 1200 is £130, won't take long to exceed its vale.

Agreed. I actually bought it for its very good wheels and tyres that will go straight on my 900 Daytona but then I noticed frame number and Reg. Must be one of the first out of Hinckley. I reckon a bit of effort and I can get it back on the road but good point - not worth much

wire wheels off the Tiger will fit but they seem to be like rocking horse s!$%. but i agree - no point in doing this without the wire wheels

Funny innit... when I first had bikes, AP50, GT380's et'c we all dreamt of getting rid of the crappy wire wheels and finding alloys to make em all spanky and whizzy...




I put it in the same pot of bad taste that contains Rat Bikes and Patina (I.E. rust they are too lazy to put right)

Yup funny how easy it is to reminisce:tongueout:

I still remember a mate turning up on his gp125 with alloys and front disc, while my earlier gp100 had wires and hubs.3103
