·   Lightweight instruction manuals are apparently available from http://www.instruction-manuals.co.uk/category/motorcyc/panther.htm

The inclusion of these dealers does not imply my endorsement of them nor do I have any involvement (financial or otherwise) with them (except for being a member of the POC which offers spares and regalia).

I am happy to include details of any dealer offering services or parts for Panthers. I require written instruction to give complete address and/or telephone numbers. Where I have not given these the dealer should be easy to locate in the classic bike press.

Panther related proper advertisements could be arranged at very modest rates - ask . This could allow me to fund more disk space at OzEmail (near my 5Mb limit).
