Looking for Triumph accessories in Taipei

Postby cfortnum » Wed Jul 30, 2014 22:59

Hello,

I am in Taipei until Aug 18th and am looking for some souvenirs for my family. My husband rides a Triumph Bonneville and mentioned that all of the Triumph accessories and parts he orders are shipped from New Taipei City, so maybe I could find him something we would like.
Since I have been here, I have seen a gazillion scooters, but no Triumphs - does anyone here know where I might be able to buy anything with the beautiful Triumph logo on it?
Thanks very much!

However, I bet you have to pay more for those accessories here than you do in your home country.

No doubt, but you may be led to some gems; collectors' items that are impossible to find elsewhere. No harm in having a look. :twocents:

That's not quite the type of accessories I'm looking for, but thanks anyway!

Thanks, Jim. I contacted Triumph Taiwan. They don't carry anything that specifically names Taiwan or Taipei, so it is pretty much the same stock as in North America, without the shipping costs though :)
Thanks for your help!
