  1. Growing up on a farm I had numerous field and trials bikes. Then I bought a BMW R90S in the early 80s. I believe it was the first 120mph production road bike. It had been given a blue full fairing and screen, so didn’t look at all like the R90S should. I stripped it all down to parts, new clutch, acquired the proper bikini fairing/screen and had it resprayed in proper black with “Daytona Orange” trim. I attach a photo - sadly no digital ones then. I also had a BMW boxer 850 roadster from new shortly after that, but no photos now. Both bikes had to go after a few years to make way for children.
  2. Hello all, This TR3 is for sale on eBay. The dealer’s website mentions that the two previous owners are long term members of the “TR club” - but not specific about which club. I wondered if those previous owners are TR Register members and if they would like to fill me in on some of the car’s history, perhaps they could PM me? Best regards Paul C

  4. Those cut-off marks very poor. It looks to me like in an attempt to save material, the maker has cut off so short that he hasn’t had enough material left to machine the piece cleanly to length across its whole width.
  5. I reckon hybrid petrol/electric until green hydrogen comes along and solves the issue.
  6. Thanks Roger and Bob.
  7. Hi I have two questions about forum posts in general When you click on a particular forum topic, is there a way of seeing it with the latest posts first, rather than the original post first? It’s a lot of scrolling for some long running topics. Secondly, what are “reputation points”? many thanks Paul
  8. That’s a beauty Billy! And thanks for the documentation. Regards paul
  9. Thanks Stuart - Well that’s a real eye opener! I’ll keep looking. Paul
  10. Thanks Stuart. The car is on eBay, it’s the red and white one. It just appears significantly cheaper than a similar UK car would be, and I wondered why. Regards Paul
  11. Hi I am looking at TR3A for sale that started its life as a complete knocked down kit in Durban South Africa in 1958. It is now UK registered. Apart from slightly different trim and a SA-specific paint job, it looks very sound. Are there any mechanical downsides to buying a car which started life as a Kit? Anything to look out for? thanks Paul C
  12. Thanks Ian - I am in touch with Mike Ellis.
  13. Hi all, I am new to the TR Register, and am looking for a car from my youth (I have posted a similar post in Cars Reunited). When I was a lad (in the 60s) my uncle had a red TR which I used to ride in - I always thought it was a TR3A, but may have been a TR3 with 3A parts. His name was Conrad Clark and he lived in Marple in Cheshire. I guess he sold it in the 70s or 80s. He died some years ago and the only identification we have left is a cousin who remembers its registration letters were "ERA". No photos unfortunately. I am just reaching retirement age myself and I am
