    I get BMW bits from Motobins as priced well, easy website and reasonable post to NZ.
    Is there a Triumph supplier similar?
    Doing an engine rebuild so looking, gasket sets, bearings, rings etc.
    Scope creep has set in with my shed find....

    www.britbike.com is a great info/referral source. I got my T140 oil filter kit from an Aussie supplier.

    Looking through Whites cateloge today and they do some British stuff - gaskets, rings, pistons and clutches for Triumphs.

    Brit spares in nelson will have everything you need and more.
    You will need their parts catalogue though, they have a lot of stuff.:clap

    They have most of what I need, but lots are " awaiting delivery" :1drink

    I get my Norton bits there as its hardly worth bothering with international

    high cost post.

    You don't need the catalogue the website takes the E part numbers :deal

    Hey Motu...is that Whites of Broadway that closed in the early 80's?


    Motor can go back together with the original mains and just a new set of

    rings and big ends, 34 years of sitting in a shed don't seem to have done

    too much harm.

    Yeah, old Bill Whites on Broadway, the only place we got our Triumph parts in the '70's. Like Forbes and Davies and Laurie Summers (Darbi), a bike shop turned fully wholesale. You won't find the British parts on the website, but are listed in the cateloge. Oh, just had a look and there is a cateloge with British spares, but looks too hard for my computer skills.
