Hello good people,
Just got my hands on a 1973 Triumph T150V to bring back to life. I'm looking to buy an original equipment left hand side panel.

Parts book has the part number as 83-4857.

So if someone has one gathering dust on a shelf I'd be very grateful if you could let me know?
Many thanks in advance and stay safe.

Nick

the reason you don't have one is because that securing knob backs out and lets the sidecover fly off when you aren't looking. you will lose the knob as well.

when you get the panel, drill a hole in the knob and wire it in place so it can't unscrew.


every day you do not take a chance is a day of your life that you will never get back.

I lost my first left hand panel in 1976 at a road race meeting at Mallory Park in England.
It was stolen when my bike was parked.
I know it was stolen as the knob was left on the ground by the side of the bike.
Ever since I have put a rubber washer between the top of the cover and the underside of the frame tab.
I have then replaced the knob with an Allen screw with a washer under it. The washer needs filing down on one side so I use a stainless washer and so no rusty washer.
I always carry the correct Allen key with me.

There out there. Try British cycle supply. I lost one on my 74T150. I really think it got stolen. I don’t think lt fell off going down the road.

Just a quick refresh of my thread. Still on the hunt, thanks to the guys who have suggested why the LH side panel was missing when I bought the bike. Makes perfect sense to me, but is a touch disheartening as it looks like I'm looking for the proverbial hens teeth.
That said, I'm a glass half full person, so hopefully this refresh of the thread will bring some good news?
All the best and stay safe.

Nick
