Triumph Bonneville is a quintessence of a daily ride. A definition of a Universal Motorcycle. With the looks reaching to the 60’s, and the same old concept of the engine. That is famous for its durability, thanks to the around 800cc producing only about 50 bhp.
But it was done in a fashion that stands out a lot. Since the original Bonneville’s line is all about elegance, chrome and classic stance – this custom is about pure metal and leather. North East Custom was all about the details with this one and it looks really cool.
All those clean metal elements, it’s imperfections – scratched tank, brushed speedo bracket, rear fender with engraved logo, front fender. Scrambler inspired exhaust with awesome mufflers with a diameter that doesn’t extend over the pipes. Nice leather grips with bar-end Motogadget turn signals.
What the photographer also focused on were the Keihin FCR flat-slide carburettors with velocity stacks. They increase even more the metal/machine looks.
I don’t actually know if this Bonneville stands higher than the stock one (like the factory Scrambler does), but I’m sure that the suspension was improved. Stock rear shocks are famous for being poor quality – so here we have a Bitubo piggyback versions.
Enjoy the low key photoshoot of this machine.
Long time, no text. I'm in a process of rethinking what this blog should be…
