Getting this thread back 'on topic' otherwise this whole forum becomes rather repetitive and thus boring, any further views from our worldwide community on current market values, are they still cheap or inflated compared to other classics.

I had the result the other day when I was out 'driving and using' my Tiger and filling up at the petrol station I had a lad come up to me........."Oi mate, is that a real one?" .....never had that before :?

Hi Peter, If you have the gear, I would then aim for the lowest attainable C02 reading that you can get while still being road useable.

The only way to overcome that issue that I can think of would be to either live with the two differing stud patterns or knock out the wheel studs, weld them up and have them re drilled to suit the Alpine/Tiger stud pattern. Good luck with it.
