I'm new at this site. is this the only Tiger site?

I just bought a TR-7/T140/'78 750 and have a few questions . I'm looking for part sites that have rubber covers for shift lever & kickstand(center). gaskets for rocker covers & oil sump base/cover & related drain/bolt gaskets(copper?). more importantly Is there a better carb available than the stock Amal? there is alot of electronic ignitions out there which ones do you recomend?

There are a few sites in the UK that deal with vintage Triumphs. Buy a Classic Bike mag and I'm sure there will be loads of advertisers there

It's easy, just use a photo program (I use Irfanview) and then you drag the picture to the bottom of your post in that Drag and Drop File Upload box.
I always wanted a Combat Wombat but who didn't?
