Would you be willing to ship the Tigress? Also, what is your asking price?

Thanks.

Where would it be shipped to? UK?
Not too sure on the price as of yet - didn't really think of it to be honest.
Would be open to offers though?

I'm in the US. Shipping would need to be to Seattle Washington. The current exchange rate doesn't do me any favors, but I've been shopping for a Tigress project and hoping to spend about $500 US.

Hi! Is the Tigress an E-Start-Version (2 Battery-Boxes in the legshield)? Possible to have some other images on vespatrick at scooterist.ch
Thank you very much!

you'd be lucky to get a Tigress for that kind of money, you'd ony get a wreck needing complete restoration for that much. Keep an eye on ebay.co.uk they come up every now and then there. There was a mint one which went for very little a while back along with one needing restoration. Search under triumph tigress and bsa sunbeam, theyre the exact same bike just different badges

Its a 1962 6 volt model. I would ship it no problem at extra cost anywhere. Its a kick start. I drove it into the garage when i bought my heinkel 10 years ago and its been there since. It just needs someone to give it a bit of tlc. Im starting to get out of bikes. I have my Yamaha 1982 TR1 for sale also. The engine is completely rebuilt with new hagon rear shock. Runs like a dream. It can be seen on www.grangemotorcycles.com alsoim selling my Honda 1980 cmt400 automatic. 43bhp. Mint condition. Like driving a honda 50 american import. I have both these bikes 15 years. Its also on the above website.
