Hi, I think you will struggle with an original TR5T engine especially if you are in UK, but you could consider using any 500 unit Triumph engine, although a later one 68 onward would be better as they are stronger engines. Perhaps you could find a Daytona or T100c etc and use that, and you would then have the bonus of exhaust stubs which mean you can fit a different system if desired. All of the very last Triumph 500's including TR5T were push in exhausts, so you are limited to what systems are available.

Not sure where your based, but just saw this on Ebay in the UK. £825, but clutch and primary are missing.

Listing isn't anything to do with me.
