Yes this is a bit of advertisement/product announcment but long time readers know that when I get high quality pics of a custom bike I’m happy to be “persuaded” into an announcment for some shots. On this one I’d do a few things differently based entirely on my personal tastes but it’s an sweet build. Oh and as an enthusiastic amateur photographer my compliments on the images. Very well lit. Thank you Jose and Tito for the shots!
Here we go again!!
here you have the brief and specs of our Triumph Bonneville T100, named “The Lizard King”. I send you a wetransfer with pics.Photos by Sergio Ibarra from Semimate (www.semimate.com) Please, mention him.Thanks for sharing. Appreciate your work.Because of the succes of our first Triumph Bonneville build, Dusty Pearl, most customers contacted us to build a Dusty Pearl for them. But as bikes builders, we believe that every bike must be unique and exclusive. So, we´re commisioned by Christian from London to build him a Dusty, but we made an agreement to make “The Lizard King”. And this is why we call these Bonnies, the “Dusty Serie´s” Bonnies.
We started to work in the previous photoshop design. The idea was to create a comfortable, stylish Triumph, but rude at the same time. We try to mix performance and style in our work, focusing in harmony of shapes and respect teh essence of the bike.
We got a new paint fuel tank scheme, alloy and black matt, enhancing the muscle shape of the fuel tank.
We mounted 1″ Biltwell tracker handlebars, wider and lower than standard, Thruster Biltwell grips, single centered speedo and short polished racing style clutch and brake levers, plus a Bates headlight with grille accommodated from a Triumph TR6 car, in the front of the bike.
In order to improve the performance of the suspension, we replace the rear forks with a Hagon Nitro pair and put progressive Hagon new springs front.
Chopped subframe and new Maccomotors seat for two, just as Christian wanted.
New K&N air filter and Metzeler Tourance 110 front and 140 rear, plus BC Predators exhausts painted black, and these others improvements complete the custom list:– New front fiber mudguard
– Rear chopped Thruxton mudguard– New turn signals and rear light– Custom side panels– New paint– Alloy footrests– Anticaloric wrap
– Predators BC exhausts
