triumph 675 endurance kinda spec

So here's my logic..

Got a road r6 and track r6 that both don't get enough use and take up space..

I'd like to replace it with something that can do the occasional sunny day blast and be road legal, but is pretty much race spec..

I'd want a slipper clutch, quick shifter and the suspension sorted but otherwise standard spec, endurance style headlight with a brake / rear light.. then i can just stick the numberplate hanger on when I want to ride on the road..

So dunno whether it'd be better to convert a road bike, or try and find a trackbike with v5 that still has the original loom intact..

so what is kicking around people?
any bright ideas?
Why are you crying? It's a fair offer...

If I were you I'd get an ex TTC bike.  Decent spec but they don't run any kit parts so will have a road loom.  You can easily stick an endurance style headlight on it and run a brake light on the plate hanger.

interesting i'd just assumed that the tts bikes wouldn't have a v5..

They don't but you can register them with the dvla, same as mine. Think it's 150

I heard that bikes with a full loom can tend to weave in a crosswind if you don't keep an eye on them.
