Finally an owner of a Thunderbird Sport!

After months of searching, I finally found a bike that was close enough to buy. I was torn between purchasing a Thruxton or a TBS but after reading through quite a few posts, I couldn't be happier with my decision.

I found the bike in Wisconsin just north of Milwaukee. The seller bought the bike from a friend of his who was also the original owner. The bike has been well taken care of.

It is a red 1999 Thunderbird Sport with a little over 9300 miles. The only modifications done to the bike are a different seat and the Triumph offroad pipes. The original parts were included in the sale.

I have a lot of other modifications in mind but would keep them reversible so I could change it back to stock at a later date if I wanted.

Looking forward to getting tips for maintenance and mondifications.

Welcome to the forum!

What a find! The TBS is absolutely awesome and it seems like you got your hands on a good one. There will be much envy. Photos, please!
