TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE THRUXTON SCRAMBLER PLUG & PLAY FENDER MOUNT LAMP KIT

So you now own a gorgeous Triumph with a hideous tail light. Don't want to be seen on Main Street with that on board. Whatcha gonna do?

Well there are some kits available constructed from a piece of bent up plate that show all the wires hanging out the back of the lamp.  But ....No flexibility in tail lamp choice....No style..... No upgrade.
If you have the tools, time and skill you can always make something fit and drill some holes in the fender, fiddle around with the wires, blow a fuse or three and waste a weekend.

Here is a little trick way to slick your license plate with a stock fender set up. Might not be the best                            idea if you live in a state that's main revenue is writing traffic tickets.
With hacksaw or cutoff disc slice 7/8" either side of bracket. Can be bent fairly easy or gently formed with a hammer. I found a 2 1/2" radius worked.

Desert racer style (Thruxton/Scramber fender). Reduced to width of fender and easily read.

Triumph Thruxton Cafe Racer Aluminum Seat Cowl





Now available! Aluminum Thruxton seat cowl. Fits stock oem seat and are a replica shape of stock cowl fastening in the same manner. Much better form and accuracy than formed sheet metal.
If you have no plan on selling your Thruxton it might be a good investment. Not sure how long plastic cowls will last. Mine already has a crack. Also if you don't like the checks or stripe this is a good option as painting is expensive and a lot to invest on a plastic base.
 Also fits direct on a Scrambler seat giving some extra storage space. It has no more than 1/2" gap at top front and looks acceptable. See pictures with white piping.
 Converting Bonneville/Scrambler to a cafe style this is a good option. Polished to perfection.
I can also supply as just shell to which could be adapted for any any seat.

Finned Exhaust Clamps Triumph Thruxton Bonneville


Ever thought there is something missing on your Triumph?

 Well ponder no more. 

That big empty space can be filled with some sleek Radial finned exhaust clamps.
 Made to the same unique design characteristic's Triumph produced from 1938 and kept remaining unaltered there on.

52 SQUARE INCHES OF COOLING SURFACE PER FINNED CLAMP.

That's 334.5 square cm of cooling surface for the rest of the world.
 Wow! all those squared things dissipating heat keeping your engine, oil and you cool also preventing pipes blueing. That's a lot of surface packed in a compact little ring loaded with 22 fins.
 Too late for my pipes have already blued!
     So with no expense spared the Exhaust Clamps are put through a rigorous test and notes made on discoloration.

 Clamps were installed on Bonneville with 531 miles.

Lucas Tail Lamp Adapter Triumph Thruxton Bonneville Scrambler




Fitting a Lucas Tail Lamp on a Triumph Twin is not as easy as you would think. Installing it in the most desirable position offers challenges as the large hole the wires feed through is in exactly the same position as the screw holes that mount the housing.
 So you have to rethink and raise or lower the housing also avoiding the large depression in the fender that was made for the stock bubble lamp.
  Now you have found the perfect compromised make do location  three holes will need to be drilled. Then you will find the lamp sits at, err well.....  not quite the angle you had in mind.
 The hideous muffin top gasket you are expected to use hiding the poor fit will also be needed unfortunately.
                                 A lot of time and effort for a disappointing result.
  That is why I decided to make a handsome bolt on no drilling adapter plate that fits stock fender holes and keeps the lamp rubber mounted as Triumph originally designed.
 The lamp, housing, adapter plate, neoprene gasket is sold as a kit with all necessary stainless hardware.


 Lucas Tail Lamp History Lesson
    Housing in picture on left has a Lucas 525 lamp mounted. These were produced from 1953-55.
 The kit is supplied with the Lucas 564 lamp which was introduced in 1955. This lamp has the Reflex reflector molded into the lens. Both lamps fit the same housing and have clear lens underside to illuminate license plate.
FITTING.
 Once the stock lamp is removed the 3 steel ferrules that fit in the rubber grommets will need to be inserted with the flange on top side of fender.
 Lamp and adapter can be fitted with supplied neoprene gasket directly on fender and tightened with the 3 stainless screws, washers on the underside and original nuts.
  Fits perfect!



Kit is supplied with vibration/water proof sheathed wire connections. The ground wire of the harness will need to be spliced to connect to L/H and R/H blinkers,  and rear lamp.
To ground tail lamp use the ring terminal to connect to one of  the three screws securing adapter plate.
