Looking for info on Red Line Frame # 008 for a 650 -- 750 unit construction Triumph.

My dad has owned it for over 30 years, NEW, never used, no rust inside or out. He bought it from the guy who ordered it new from Mike & Lynn at Red Line Frames.
Has motor mounts, foot pegs, rear brake lever, set up for rear disc brake. He would like to know if it was built for dirt track, T T, desert, play bike or what.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you. Not wanting to sell, trade or give it away.

Well that’s the best news I’ve heard so far. ?

Been searching on line all day. I even found Linn Kastan’s Son on FB and sent him a message to see if he might be able to point me in the right direction.

Going to need a picture. Try posting an ad here asking if anyone knows. Lots of old timers on that site.

A guy by the name of Bill Millburn has a ton of historical knowledge over there, maybe he will see it.
