    Maybe he was in the running of the Bulls, or the Oz equivalent, and got caught riding down a very narrow alley.

    Unfortunately I got my assumptions wrong about 'him' dying last year his executor has obviously had a lot to do since 2016. I suppose it takes a long time to dispose of 700+ vehicles something that @Mittzy , I and few others here may need to consider! ;):p:D

    Bit of Google foo and voila!

    How the hell he achieved all that in just 62 years is amazing, it seems he was an absolute legend!

    First purchase - fairly non-committing.

    The front brake reservoir and master cylinder alloy housing was almost ground down to fluid and toast but I found they are a shared part with a few Thunderbirds and found one cheap from the UK for £30, Au$79 delivered to Oz
    1 AUD = 0.5317 GBP
    GBP 29.99
    Postage GBP 12.00
    GST* GBP 4.20
    Total GBP 46.19

    Triumph Thunderbird 1600 2011

    1 MASTER CYLINDER ASSY FRONT T2028025 Replaces T2028000
    1-3 IN STOCK Au$411.96 inc. VAT (£230.00)

    Note the 7" headlight insert (#1 Headlamp Assy, Sym T2701009 Replaces T2700135 ) itself is the same for many Triumphs models going back 20+ years to the Adventurer and 865/900 Thunderbirds even. T100 Bonnevilles, Thruxtons, you name it they all use the same internal light.
    Triumph, ADVENTURER (from VIN 71699), Headlight/Mountings

    Luckily I still have it taped in place.

    Only a few share the front ring too but none I think are a direct replacement for the light bucket itself.
