you did!!

   I was looking at a fair trade purchase here in the states..... I got several quotes and they were all the same to the penny.  roughly $3,400.00 for both wheels.  I just finalized the transaction with Triumph world.... shipped to my door step (both front and rear wheel) for just under $1,300.00.

Geesss.... I'm so relieved!!!

Thanks, Larry Martin

The nightmare continues!!!    World of Triumph just contacted me and said that they are sold out of the item and according to them.... "Triumph has now discontinued this item".  Which seems crazy to discontinue an item for a 1 year old motorcycle.

Well I had ordered the spoke wheels to fit my 17 tex, but was contacted by World of Triumph saying it was a no go.... they closed the order due to parts unavailability. right now.... I'm dead in the water.

IMOHO, a decent dealer should be able to sort this out!

Yep.... I'm sure they would (mine did), but at a locked in price (I've checked several OEM parts houses in the USA) of $3,400.00 for 2 wheels.... I'm doing my best to find another avenue on my own....

Looks like World of Triumph is going to line me up with wheels (cast) for $1,620.00.

Thanks all,  Larry
