    Had this great little T100 in today for a Boyer EI install, another happy chappy off to enjoy his bike.

    You are super cool @darkman
    Just watch out for me travelling towards you in the opposite direction doing exactly the same thing or it could be disastrous....Be a cool looking accident/disaster though:p:joy::joy::joy:

    I thought only I did that. I remember doing it when I was 17 and went into the back of a bus. I looked really cool.

    The most stupid (similar) thing I ever did was looking at a girl at a bus stop. Drifted over the white line and hit a council refuse truck head on. Shortened the wheelbase on my T140 by about eighteen inches and was in a toe-to-hip plaster cast for six months. :weary_face:

    That's a nice looking T100, by the way.

    Cheers, it's a T120, no window shopping on this one. Luckily I only folded the front mudguard on to the front wheel so was stuck until I bent it back, only damage to me was my pride.

    Lovely little Tiger 100. I bought a new one in 1970 and did 20,000 miles on it in a year! That's a 16/17 year old's enthusiasm for you!

    Bought a new T100 this year and love it just as much. :)

    i have a 2001 tt600 ,and a buddy just got a 2017 street twin which i have ridden and liked the old school feel of.
    i started looking at 60s 650 tigers .
    my question is how reliable would it be.?
    thanks mark

    As with any of these older bikes its down to servicing/maintenance. Your safest bet is buying a project you can rebuild and look after.

    That is my plan ..looking at relatively complete examples
    Seem to be quite a few around in south Texas ..at least they are relatively straight forward..
    No sensors or injection..
    Thanks mark

    also do you have a pic from the other side showing the exhaust.
    i assume its a high pipe arrangement.
    but am curious.
    thanks mark
