I'm really enjoying the scrambler pics, especially the low-pipe bikes.
To get to a low-pipe street-scrambler, would you start with a Scrambler or with a Bonneville?

Not a Scrambler

Ahhhhhhhhh. Although not a Scrambler, I hope to have one of the new Nortons parked next to my Scrambler by spring.
And yes it gives me wood as well!

Prospective new owner !!

Hi Guys,


Trawled through the 1st 12 pages. Interesting.
Just sold my DR 750 and time to move to a newer era.
Love the look of the scrambler, looks capable off road.
There is one just down the road from me so will have a looks see tomorrow.

2 concerns. Clutch is it cable ? and fuel range. Comming from a 30lt super tanker, but I suppose these are minor.
Anyway watch this space.

It's Bill Gately, he is about 20 miles away from me. I have run into several times. He is a really nice guy.

Low-pipe Zard, anyone?

Whoops! I accidentally started a new thread - mea culpa - but this is where I want to be . . .

Hello there,

More than forty years later I have finally returned to the fold of Triumph!

Having had to abandon my old Bonnie back in the Sixties in the South of France due to a blown big-end bearing, I am finally ready to re-ignite the love affair. She was a rorty snarling beast back then and despite good experiences with Beezers and Panthers she in her fecklessness was the reason why I turned to Beemers and Guzzis to find what the British seemed incapable of doing, building a reliable bike.

Guzzis filled the bill - (Beemers were a bit too boring) - and I now have a beautiful green V11S which I'll never sell. But I've been watching Triumph go from strength to strength and much as the new Tiger 800XC calls me - it's the Scrambler that I think will directly heal the pain and right the wrongs of yesteryear. And my heart is old-school - I also have an XR1200, and had to sell an older Guzzi Mille to get me this Scrambler - so you probably get where I'm coming from.

At any rate I got me a barely broken in carburated red and white '08 and here's the thing . . .

She comes close to stock, but the owner fitted a low-pipe Zard which he then removed planning to sell separately. I got the Zard as part of the deal, but truth to tell, I like the high-pipe look. But the stock pipes are a bit too much chrome for my taste and so I would like to go to a high pipe Zard or Arrow system.

Anyone out there want to go low and swap out there high pipes for low?

I'm in Ontario, Canada so it would probably have to be someone in North America for it to make sense. The Zard is in great shape - barely used - and in its original box.

If I figure out how to post a picture the pipe and bike are as seen:
