Replacement keys.

Post by Robbo87 » Mar 30th, '19, 13:13

Just received excellent service from these people: https://keysinthepost.com

I only got one key with my recently aquired bike, three local key suppliers/key cutters were unable to help, couldn't match the original. Found the above company on Ebay; 'Replacement keys, guaranteed to fit, £9.98 inc' shipping'. All I needed to do was 'Buy it now' and send them a photo' of the original; I sent them three. Did that late on Wednesday p.m. - Saturday morning it arrived, and fits a treat.

Here's their Ebay ad' - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Triumph-Mast ... 2749.l2649

So, recommended.

Clever stuff - had no idea that could be done.
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

The positive side of me says "Superb!"

The cynical side says your name, address, and bike key details are now on a database over which you have no control ....

Always good practise to have keys sent to a different address if you’re ordering online

Completely agree. Send to friends place/work Or even collect from Argos.
That way it's not stating where the vehicle may be.

It is clever especially when (like at the moment) a polo has the key on the parcel shelf but locked car.
Take photo through rear window and key is ordered. Awaiting new key to unlock car to get actual key =))

So at least it's confirmed the new steed is a Trumpet - not a tuk-tuk after all.
tuned & modified 08 B-King - stockish 14 Busa - modified 01 FZS1000 - a nutter on all three :twisted:

At the moment I wish I had a tuk-tuk, it'd be easier to push.

I knew where a tuk tuk was if you want me to ask,
Also why you pushing it not riding it yet??

There was a T-T swanning around here up to 18 months ago, it probably repatriated itself after Brexit was mentioned.

Pushing it - I would have to push it 'cos still got a few issues to sort including, but not limited to, a seized rear brake calliper . . . . . . Then there's the brake light that doesn't due to an, as yet untraceable, poor earth; and corroded & seized fairing bolts, and drive chain and sprockets . . . . . Other than that, it's perfect!

Come back Fut all is forgiven . . . . . . er' no, I won't go that far :mrgreen: .
