Latest Bonneville Build from macco Motors

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.

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

Reader Ride. A slightly unscrambled scrambler?

Wow I like this bike. I’ve always preferred the higher stance of the scrambler and thought it would work well on a standard Bonnie. And I think this bike proves the point.

Hi Steve,
Glad the site is still going strong!
I sent you a pic of my Scrambler last year, in it’s second guise…..
Today, I attach pics of the latest incarnation, and for interest include a photo of the bike when I bought it new in 2006, plus one of the bike in 08.
I hope you approve of the changes!
Best regards,

Indeed I do Ian! I really need to just buy one of these. I sure stare at them enough..

Reader Ride. I never get tired of those custom Bonnevilles. Expecially the scramblers.

Hi, I customized my Triumph Scrambler with lot’s of help of my neighbor and a lot of inspiration of your site. On my tour today I passed my new Garage and took some footage with my GoPro. The pic are stills from that footage and a little pimped in Photoshop. Hope you like it anyway.

Mit sonnigem Gruß, best regards,
