Has anyone tried to fit the earlier leather panniers & rails to a later bike?

I can get some new panniers for a 95 Tbird but not a 2002?

Alternativel anyone know where I can get some leather or fabric Triumph panniers for the 2002 Tbird? The accessories seem to be drying up.

Hi,

I am not sure the rails will fit okay?

The early ('95 Thunderbird>) is slightly taller and with a shorter wheelbase - you can recognise these as they have the eccentric chain adjusters. Triumph introduced a different rear sub-frame when making the (later) Thunderbird lower, and with a longer wheelbase.

If you look through the photo albums, I think you will notice each model has a different shaped Rail, and I suspect the fixing points are located different.

I am not able to answer your question, but hopefully the above gives you something to checkout?

By the way, Jack Lilley's online store is still showing many of the parts as still available - they do mail order to the US, but the cost may be too high?

Ciao,
Geoff
