Re: Correct Period Radio for a Tiger

One of my other Jobs completed in 2019 on my Tiger, a period Radio.

Not the Correct LAT72 Surround and speaker I know, but it looks period and my Mate's converted it so I can connect my MP3 Player :D

No grease nipples on the Tiger rack. It's filled with a heavy oil instead...
Does that mean it's supposed to be Maintenance free or can you top up the Oil?

My previous T...
