[QUOTE=torquenm;2444894]I have already bookmarked most existing sites that sell stuff for the tbird. Having a hard time though finding one that sells the thick classic triangular tank pad. Any idea?

I got my pads from a local Triumph dealer, but they are the from British Customs, and are intended for the Bonneville line. They fit pretty good, and feel good too!

Agreed, I have them on my '04 and I get compliments on the sound of them all the time. Someone on another thread asked about pipes for the TBS and I just got done tell them about Staintunes on that thread.

Welcome to the classic tripples torquenm am sure you love the t/bird i have a 96 with just under 20000mls nvr misses a beat things to watch out for are the dreaded sprag clutch failure this can be avoided by keeping a strong battery another issue is the coils most ppl swap out when they go with nology coils not really somthing ive had bother with but others in here have, with such a low mls bike might be an idea to make sure the carbs are clean as its prob sat for a while with little use and the stale fuel can gum the jets up but you will know in riding her ,theres lots of stuff can be done with these bikes with a lot of mods cafed ect those knee pads your lookin for may still be availble from triumph otherwise keep an eye on our trusted freind flea bay good luck with the bike and safe riding

Thanks you all! I guess I am bound to keep looking for my next Triumph Classic ( TBird, TBS or Bonnie). The one I thought would be a good deal was a total rip off . I went to see it this morning: never garaged, rusted, faded colors and chrome, yellow windshield, engine sounded pathetic, cracked seat...etc, etc!! I mean a real shame. Owner pretended the bike was flawless! A living dead Tbird that's what it looked like. Sad:-(

Well, I finally settled for a 2001 Bonnie in showroom condition. Just couldn't pass this one beautiful modern classic. Silver and red. 2k miles on the clock, just fresh out of a time capsule found in Bakersfield, CA. Cost me 4.2K. Brand spanking new, runs strong with ceramic coated TOR, lots of chrome, Q&K seat + stock.
I had the very same one from 2002 to 2007...back to the future:-)
See pictures. The last one with the Windshield is my "old" one.
Thanks Bonniemojo for posting for Danny.
I have already started to order accessories...what a kick!!
