I have just bought a Basket case :)



The guy bought the bike 20 years ago with the intention of building a special.
He had the crankshaft modifed to a 76° Offset
Only problem is that it needs modified camshafts and Ignition Timing.
I was quoted a rough estimate of £400 for the Camshafts alone :eek:
So I will be returning it back to standard.
He removed the passenger Footrest Brackets, and also the centre stand bracket
Luckily he kept the frame parts so I will be able to replace then with my TIG Welder



The bike is listed as Black in the Registration Document.
Does anyone know if they made a Black Tiger?
If not what are the correct colours for a 1978 UK Tiger

Thanks

Andy

Yeah, you no risen put ear in pocket and listen. PUT ENGINE NUMBER, CONFIRN BIKE TYPE ETC. For this bike there are 12 different colors listed if it’s 1981 T140 and 3 others if special. Go buy books and study what you got. That’s where you must start. Sorry to say that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Exhaust from T140D Special. more info required.

Thanks for your help............
The bike is definitely a 1978 Tiger
Frame and engine number are Prefix KX which according to sources is September 1978
I need to check what the actual number is
The exhaust is a 2 -1 aftermarket item and is missing its silencer
It will be replaced with a standard system.

Thanks

Andy
