Surplus Triumph TRWs!

An advert from Northwest Cycle, Winnipeg circa 1966. Thanks, Fred!

In my search for info and parts for the TRW project, a friend sent me this from his collection. 
As he says,"Northwest had bought a truck load back in the day. They would " Recondition" them, as in repaint them whatever colour you want, getting rid of the army green etc., put a Chrome Mirror, Saddlebags etc, you know? Update them for modern civilian use, Ha! Ha! But the price sure was good for the day. My 1966 750 Matchless was $1100 new back then at Chariot Cycle : ). Think I was making a dollar an hour as a parts guy at AVO Sales Marina.
