NZ New One

Hi All,

I live down under in a sunny little country called New Zealand, well OK not so sunny at the moment as it is the 1st day of our winter..

I have four british bikes that include 2 Triumphs, an early 75 T160 and a 1951 Tiger 100.. I am thinking of adding one of the Hinkley made Triumphs to my small stable and would like to possibly do some sort of a custom job on a T100..

I have heard some discussion on whether or not these new bikes are actually still being made in the UK.. Can someone tell me what the story is with assembly plants etc?

Greetings from a not so sunny Coromandel Peninsula. Nice collection of bikes you have! I rode a '55 Tiger 100 in all weathers in my student days a lifetime ago. Still have a couple of Triumph maintenance manuals covering '45-60 twins!

Enjoy the great site
