Vintage Exhaust Vendor?

I was curious if anyone could recommend vendors that sell vintage scrambler style exhausts & other parts (NOS) for vintage Triumphs? I am exploring options for restoration projects and want to determine parts availability before purchasing my vintage Triumph (probably a 63-70 Tiger, Daytona or Bonneville). Thanks!

Thanks. It does help. I hadn't found them yet. So far I'd found the following sites:

walridge.com
britishonly.com
britbike.com
baxtercycle.com
britcycle.com
davequinnmotorcycles.com
bornagainbikes.net

I am just trying to get an idea of what parts will run for doing a restoration of an older bike. I've got my daily rider ('02 Bonnie), but am looking for a project bike to tinker on in my spare time.

I've found a few so far that look like good candidates, but depending on the bike parts were missing, the exhaust was in bad shape and/or the tank & mudguards needed attention. I'm not too worried about the re-painting, but I really didn't know about the availability and cost of the exhaust (headers & silencers).

Anyway, the hunt continues...

Thanks!

I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how available parts are for older Triumphs. Also very reasonably priced in most cases. Not like buying vintage Ducati parts. Most old Triumph stuff is considerably less expensive, and easily as available as bits for your newer Triumph.

Good to know thanks. I think I have a '71 Trophy lined up. Need to work out a few details yet, but it looks promising. She's currently a basket case. Current owner says everything is there but the seat and headers. Guess I'll find out as I start the rebuild.

Ha, famous last words!! It's always the little bits that are missing that are the hardest to find!

But as others have said, there is still plenty of stuff around.

You can get just about anything for these bikes, at a reasonable cost to boot. Now, try to find engine parts for an '03 Buell. It's like trying to diamonds in a charcoal bag!

Best of luck with your project (whatever you decide on) - GrandPaulZ of the vintage forum here is a first-class resource for parts. If he doesn't have what you're looking for, he may point you to it.

And here on the west coast, Rabers (dot com) has had everything I've asked them for (and I've had to ask them for a lot ; -)

Keep us posted on your decisions and progress !

Yeah good luck, you're going to need it if you buy exhaust pipes from Armours.
They don't fit.
Armours don't refund your money for returnig the faulty goods.
I had bad dealings with Armours, and since then I've heard from quite a few other people who had bad dealings with them.
Including this guy:
