Where would one find Triumph 3HW parts....?

Recommended Posts

I am about to buy one and it is a slight worry that engine parts etc might be slightly tricky to come by...?

 

Any good sources of spares would be great :)

Triumph 'single' main engine parts are hard to find, but items such as pistons, valves, guides, crank bearings etc shouldn't be a problem. Lots of other parts were carried over to post war bikes and can be obtained from dealers such as Trisupply in your home county or Ace Classics in London. John Brewster makes fork spindles/bushes and head stock bearings. I'm also in Dorset (Poole) and have a 3SW and 3HW in my collection. I'm also currently restoring a 5SW for a friend. Give me shout if you want to pop in. Ron

Hi Ron.

 

That is really good of you, I would love to pop in sometime, I have a feeling I might need the odd spot of advice every now and again! I will look into the parts suppliers you mentioned but thank you again for your reply. I have been on this site for just over a day and I already have had a whole bunch of people saying hello! I'm so glad I came here!

Always nice to have another 3HW owner join us, I've had mine just over a year now and this site has been a great help. Welcome to the club!

Hey Agmerlin :)

 

Thanks very much! I haven't got her yet, I am trying to do my research first so I don't get bitten but I am certain I want to buy her :D

 

She will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine.... (Wayne's World in case you didn't guess :S ......)
