This set of petrol tank knee grips were fitted to various Triumph models from the late 1950s through 1965, including the T20 Cubs and export TR5, TR6, and T120 models with the 3 gallon petrol tanks. This set is a matching left and right-hand pair.
The reproduction thick rubber knee grips feature the original Triumph logo against the correct grid pattern. Sourced in the UK.
Essential for a proper restoration, the thick rubber knee grips are contoured to correct dimensions and add to the iconic look of the late pre-unit and early unit export model Triumph twin petrol tanks.
The knee grips are stretched over metal mounting plates, which are screwed into threaded bosses on each side of the petrol tank. Some prep work is required to clean off any residual mold-release from the rubber surface of the exterior of the knee grips. The use of a rubber lubricant is recommended to aid in fitting the grips to the mounting plates.
