1973 Triumph t140v
Hello everyone; I'm the new guy for today and I just wanted to say that I' m restoring a 73' t140v that was a garage find. 10k original miles, but after 15 years of sitting. It definitely needs some work. This is my second 73' t140v restoration and I guess I'm pretty blown away re. the price for old Triumph parts-today compared to my first restoration 30 years ago. Any help in locating a reputable seller of used Triumph parts would really help. I'm 71 years old and the fixed income thing is really going to slow this project down unless I can source some reasonably priced used parts. Thanks guys ahead of time for future help and recommendations regarding this project. I have to say that I LOVE old Triumphs!

Hello and welcome to the forum. I would suggest that you start a restoration thread in our classic section. We have Grandpaul that runs that area and he is our classic man with all sorts of great info and he does have loads of parts as well.
