Land vehicle Vehicle Motorcycle Motor vehicle Mode of transport

As the headline says.
If a kind soul could tell me what type of motorcycle it is in the picture?

I saw it in the movie "The Space Between Us".

Thankful for any kind of answers!

Yes definitely a mid to late 60's triumph. Could be a T120, can't tell from that angle if there is another wrapped exhaust on the other side.
I just can't make out the cylinders.

Definitely a Triumph 'fence gate' tank emblem.
Owned a new '69 500cc high pipe scrambler myself.... wanted to be Steve McQueen(aka: Harvey Mushman), the king of cool.
Ahhhh, the good old days:

Odd, another OP with her first post. No other posts. No responses either. Not even an Indian. Odd.

Right around 1970 or 1971 maybe. I remember the flick.
Yes, released in '71, in '72 it was nominated for an Academy Award. It's my all time favorite motorcycle motive, probably because I grew up riding in that era. Number two on my movie list of favorite motorcycle movies isThe Worlds Fastest Indian.

Hi !

It's a Triumph TR6 C Trophy (emblem, exhaust, front fender) from 1961 or 1962.
650cc
But it's not the original handlebar... This one have a Clubman handlebar for a Cafe Racer look ;)

Regards !

It’s a 1964 triumph tr6c trophy. With shortened and flipped handlebars and a custom wrapped straight piped exhaust on both sides. And I believe the one in the movie was converted to an electric start and they kept the kick starter lever for looks.
