Triumph logoOliver Barnes owns and runs Tri-Supply. Currently based in Budleigh Salterton, Devon he's been selling Triumph motorcycle parts since 1981. The years covered by his stock begin in 1946 and end in 1970. He retails all the usual stuff from bearings to chains to electrical components to mudguards to all kinds of odds and ends and essentials. There isn't much new old stock going around anymore, so Tri-Supply will sell remanufactured items. However, Barnes is conscious of the fact that many re-made parts are not fit for purpose, and he claims to scrutinise whatever he offers for sale and retail only those items that are worthy of the Triumph name.


We haven't done any business with Tri-Supply, but neither have we heard anything negative about this firm. And we note that among his trading testimonials is a letter/email from Shirley Harris, widow of Les Harris and current Managing Director of L F Harris Ltd.


We also note this statement on Barnes's website: "Pre Unit & Unit-Twin Triumphs 98% stock holding." And that may sound unlikely, but we'll take him at his word if you willand we don't mean that in any snide or disrespectful way. However, batting 98% is a very high average. Either way, he's been around the block a few times, and we've got no doubt that he knows his stuff.


Oliver has since advised us that Tri-Supply, is a "proper shop with a counter greeting customers in person from all over the world." And we've got no reason to doubt that either.


Put him on your list somewhere. You never know what one trader will have in stock than another doesn't, and this business clearly takes pride in fulfilling its trading promises.
