    The TR5T used the same frame as the Trail Blazer/B25 oil in frame singles, which is different than the 650/750 twins. I'm not saying that it won't fit, but it will not be an easy bolt-on.

    A friend of mine here just brought this X-75 home after much hand wringing and consternation over whether to make the purchase or not... Good choice in my estimation.

    Cheers,

    Painting my dining room, so I decided to move the BSA out while doing IMG_20200922_113716898_HDR.jpg so, & give it a bath. Pretty good looking bike, for being a 53 year old original. Yup, it's just the way Birmingham made it. It's not been restored. My Dad bought it new, & it's never left the family.
