Stupid money for parts

before and after pics of the right side rear mudguard support bracket on my Triumph, cost new from Triumph parts finder UK ?

115 euros !!!

I got one from ebay off a 98 thunderbird for £28 plus postage from the USA. I can't see more than £20 worth of alloy poorly cast pot metal in it bloody rip off merchants :mad:

LH footpeg and mounting plate

£117 from Triumph parts finder UK  got it for £15 plus postage from ebay via my lad. Truly scandalous these 'genuine parts' prices.

vulcanrider....

I would suggest you get yourself a 'ratbike' (an old 80's yamaha/kawasaki custom) ...but you'd probably spend thousands of Euro's getting it back to showroom condition.:smile
