    TR7 Advice

    Hello All I know this is a daft question but I have to start somewhere? I am 73 years young and own Triumph 1500 Spitfire, Mk2 Vitesse , TR2 and a Morris Minor Traveller plus a few motorcycles! The Spitfire is modified and runs ITB,s and fuel injection on a modified engine The Vitesse needs a bit of work to get it road worthy not Konkers The TR2 is in pieces and I do not think I will ever get it back together. The Morris Traveller needs a bit of work as well! 2 motorcycles are road worthy and one needs work! Plus numerous spares etc So the question is I am thinking of buying a TR7 now while the prices are reasonable Having a quick look I think I could get a very good soft top for about £6000 (2 litre) We love Spitty and have done 35000 miles in the last 6 years Spain, Italy, Ireland(north and south) Classic le Mans (4) Classic Spa(3) we love touring But as we get older she is getting lower to the floor(well feels like it!) so my thoughts turned to a TR7 is Still a Triumph but modernish?(I fancy a Triumph Stag but expensive for a good one and thirsty) I have never driven one and all the reports I have read say they are not as bad as the non believers make out! (I remember the out cry when windy window TR4,s were allowed in!) We have owned TR4, Reliant Scimitar, and I have repaired and driven a few TR6,s I just thought a TR7 may suit better into my dotage Now Am I completely mad or does that seem like a good plan?(remember I have to sell it to the Memsahib!) To be honest I could sell one Motor cycle to buy one? (but its time I tried!!!!! to down size the collection) Roger ps be kind to me and break it gently that I am stark raving bonkers!

    Headlight Bulbs

    Hello All If they get that hot they need a fan for cooling how does the heat get out of the headlamp shell? and would it not be worse if the shells were plastic? Roger

    Tip o' the day - use vaseline

    Hello All I thought washing up liquids have lots of salt in them and why they are not the best stuff to wash your car with? Roger

    Indicator buzzer

    Hello Tony I fitted one of these and it works a treat and adjustable! there is one without the brake function which I also have but removed to fit this one as you can leave the winkers on at lights with your foot on the brake and it stops the noise but starts again when released https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MOTORBIKE-INDICATOR-WARNING-BUZZER-ADJUSTABLE-DELAY-WITH-BRAKE-MOD/251337237605?hash=item3a84dde465:g:LFUAAOxyuUZSL5t- Roger
