Well, maybe I am off base here. Don't have my flat rate manual handy, but
I'm guessing 10 hours would be about right, for a shop equipped with all the
right tools. I've not done a TR6, but I have done a TR3 in a single day and
I think the TR6 only involves a few more bolts (to remove the center
console). $750 labor plus $350 parts pretty well nails $1100.
Puts a different light on doing it yourself; when you can work at half the
speed of a professional, and still pay yourself $37.50 per hour, tax-free.
> Granted, you or I might do it for 1/2 that
You might, but I don't take money for working on Triumphs. It is strictly a
hobby for me, and taking money crosses the line, IMO. YMMV
The corollary of course is that I don't work on other's Triumphs, much <G>
