No rear disc brakes but a larger servo (located under the rear seat) pulls my Tiger up with plenty of smoking rubber if brake pedal is pressed too hard! Love to have a 5 speeder but overspend on house renovations put paid to that. Will be having a big clear out soon via eBay so hopefully may get a f...

My Tiger has some re-worked front suspension/steering mods. I understand it was fitted with an MGB rack well before my ownership but I cannot any more on this mod. The tie-rods were replaced with a cranked version supposedly to provide an anti Ackerman effect, not sure about this as I hear tyre scru...

HELP. After the French delights, I find myself faced with an embarrassing dilemma. My Tiger soft top was past its sell by date and the frame had more rust than the Forth bridge. Lacking the experienced personnel to trawl over the said soft top frame I opted to remove it and send it to be powder coat...

French? yes the general ambience would indicate a Gaelic influence. In particular notice bridge construction and stonework indicative of western European influence. The ladies shoes also are typically French. This was a very difficult photo to take. The subtle contrast between dark bridge arches and...

Soft top frame

Soft top frame away being powder coated. Trying to clean up other bits and pieces but unfortunately the some small steel screws have welded themselves into an aluminium bracket. The bracket holds the nylon U clip and mounts into the windscreen frame. In-spite of Plus Gas, etc the screws snapped. Can...

I found a set of originals on the web some time ago. In good condition apart from colour fade.
They are out there but you need to keep looking.

Xmas Apology Over the past year I forwarded some inappropriate pictures and jokes to friends who I thought shared my sense of humour. Unfortunately this wasn't always the case and I seem to have upset quite a number and have been accused of being a drunken, shallow sexist. If you were one of these p...

Thanks, that's a neat solution.

Hadn't thought about galvanic action; could be exacerbated by using the Tiger on roads that have salt grit contamination.

I think I will stay indoors until spring - should give me time to sort out the rad mounts.

Best regards. :D
