triumph parts sources

Had a good experience with a company/ebay seller? Found a handy website? Post a link, with a description here. Need to know where to mend wax cotton jackets? (ahem...) Spares for your Bantam? If you can't find it here, post a request.

triumph parts sources

Who is your favorite source for Triumph spares. I have 74 T100R and some of the Triumph parts places don't seem to have much compared to the amount of Norton spares available. And why is that ? I didn't think that Norton was more popular than Triumph and BSA.

I use grintriumph.com, always have what I'm looking for, but then I'm on a t140. Wont use Shropshire, they never reply to e-mails and sold me some unusable air filters.

I used to use Grin & still do on occasions Wilemans don't have the bits. The reason I swopped to Wilemans is I work 10mins away, I prefer to drop in & discuss problems in person to get the advice as well as the parts.
Agree on Shropshire, I got my 'Spitfire' E3134 exhaust cam off them & it took forever to arrive after they took the money.

Not so far from where I work at the RTC either.

Yip, Wilemans Motors.
Have used them almost exclusively since 1983.
I have used GrinTriumph occasionally without any hassles

Well, now that you mention it, I see that there is. Not that there's much on Triumph parts sources. Maybe this post will make it's way over there to help fill in the gap.

I've just started to use Rockerbox in Surrey (wrecklesham).

They're not on the web but I think that they do mail order stuff.

I've also used Grin and have bought a fair bit from LP williams.

I've given upon Shropshire MCs due to the delays
