CB550 Project Scruffy Racer

Is that a TR6 hiding next door? I'd like to see more of it.
Your 550 looks great. You will have to change its name from Scruffy to something more fitting.

Yes, you are correct it’s a 1974 TR6

Being a UK car it has Lucas mechanical fuel injection, the US got a depowered car with twin SU carbs.
Car looks standard and is in nice condition, lots of rebuilding of bodywork, mechanicals and interior, and better braking to go with the 2.7ltr 175bhp engine.

Nice motor mate, love the TR6. And yeah, you're definitely going to need a new name for the bike - Scruffy isn't working anymore

I’ve decided to call and end to Project 550 - The Scruffy Racer.

not happy with the tank, i’m worried there’s more rust hidden beneath the old filler and the whole lot needs to go back to metal and be redone.

so i’m going to ride Scruffy about for a bit then plan Phase 2

thanks for all the help and comments, look out for the next phase in the Autumn :)

Sorry to hear that - what makes you think there’s rust under the filler? Is the inside of the tank rusty too? Or is the paint not laying flat?
