I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the support, encouragement and knowledge you have given me throughout the restoration of my ‘basket case’ 1954 T100.  I am delighted to say the bike is now finished and runs sweetly.  Hopefully I will soon receive an age related number and the bike can then have a road-test…

You have provided me with numerous parts over the last year or so and the quality of the goods together with the fast and efficient service has never faltered.  One item in particular is however worthy of special praise and that is the Oil Pressure Tell Tale unit.  I find the engineering quality and materials used to make the unit simply sublime.

So thanks again for your help and patience.

With kind regards

To all Triumph Owners

Being classically trained in the art of restoring Series Land Rovers – the only side effect being alopecia – I threw my hat into the ring to restore the last remaining 1958 Triumph T6 650cc Thunderbird, owned by the late King, at close to 5000ft above sea level in Kathmandu.

Here the it’ll do attitude, 12 hours of load shedding and their penchant for swapping out original parts for, in no preferable order, Yamaha, Royal Enfield and Suzuki (car) made for a grit-your-teeth and swear-at-will rebuild.

Oliver Barnes at Tri-Supply supplied endless, it felt, audible cups of tea from an era of the honest AA man. A God’s send.

The job I felt was in no way difficult, as apart from Land Rovers I have rebuilt classic Vespas and Lambrettas here in Nepal. But, the main issue was my customer, as in so many other rebuilds. Oliver was very patient, knowledageable and we had a laugh along the way. Heck, when I’m back in Cornwall even I may now rebuild a Triumph. At least we’ll both know who the customer will be.

So as a testimonial I’ll leave it at this: If you’re up a mountain and your workshop manual has been sacrificed for heat Oliver will heli-vac you out of there into the warmth, knowledge and the correct parts bin(!) of Tri-Supply.

Thank you Tri-Supply.
Best regards,
M. Chadwick
