Yowza! Ii really appreciate you letting us see that collection. I saw a green (that a T120?) Bonny like that for sale recently on ebay with the tank rack. Is that Norton a Colorado Norton Works? Its sweet. Its going to be hard to concentrate at work now.
Green one is a 67 TR6 The purple one next to it is a 67 T120 Bonnie

And, yes the Red Norton is build 99 from CNW

Did you happen to get that TR6 on ebay within the past few weeks. Identical to one a recently saw for sale. Saw a CNW for sale a few months ago. Sold for 20k. I think it was #54 or thereabouts. Red, standard seat.
I saw the recent 67 TR6 on EBay (at least I think it was the same one you saw) It was a bike pieced together from several years of Triumphs, from 67 to 70 models. there was a 67 TR6 "C" model (up/side pipes) on about 3 months ago, that belonged to a friend in West Virginia. It was very nice and I was tempted to buy it

I purchased mine as a barn find in rough shape, but matching numbers and complete. Just finished the restore after 2 years

Also remember seeing the CNW bike on eBay, with the Longhorn cow in the background LOL

That's the one. It is a combo bike with parts from several different years. Don't get me wrong, it is a very nice bike and great looking, but the fact it is pieced together reduces the value of the bike. I think he has relisted it several times because it is not hitting reserve
I just looked at the bidding, and there are no bids placed on it. It is a shame, because it is a nice job, but the multi-year piece together makes it "not as desirable" in the Triumph antique market

Yea. I was going by memory, which is bad ...lol...but on reinspection, I see that its a piece meal bike. It would be worth twice that for a high quality resto. Nice ride either way. I think its worth at least his starting bid.

If you are attempting to justify the purchase of a 961 from a rational perspective, by comparing prices and features with other bikes, then don’t bother. Seriously, you either love it, or you don’t. That is a very subject opinion, and I think good advice too.
The 961 is a unique experience, but certainly not right for everyone.
Clap, Clap, Here Here! There is nothing else like the Norton 961 on the road. No Ducati, Triumph, or old Norton is going to be the Norton 961 (although I love a ton of those other bikes). Like BritTwit said, you love the 961 or you don't. For me it was a must-have the moment I saw it, and although it took me three years to get mine (and I'm still paying for it), it was well worth it.

Im in total agreement, its not the sensible thing, but If I was sensible Id be on a Honda. But I also had to have one, which, Im also still paying for....

And I don't regret it one bit, if the weather was better I would have been out on it today....
