LOS ANGELES, CA

Let’s be honest: motorcycle customization can get messy. And when it gets messy, it gets frustrating. One of the most annoying — yet common — situations a rider runs into when installing the part they’re so excited to put on their bike is when they’re halfway through a project and they find out that they need one more part in order to complete the installation. Every rider who isn’t a seasoned custom builder guru has run into this situation, and they know that it’s the worst.
The new Triumph Street Twin doesn’t make things easier either with its numerous cables and mounting brackets that come with a liquid-cooled platform. It’s like a sweater: you pull on one thread, and it pulls another somewhere else.
To eliminate the hassle and frustration from motorcycle customization, long-time Triumph veterans British Customsreleased their much-anticipated complete Weekend Projects Packages for the Triumph Street Twin. The Triumph Street Twin Weekend Project Packages contain everything needed to customize any given section of the motorcycle, guaranteed. British Customs is offering complete Street Twin Weekend Project Packages for
These comprehensive packages allow riders to customize their seats, ergonomics, exhaust, sprockets, turn signals, and more with only common tools and basic technical knowledge. While any project on its own will transform a Triumph Street Twin, these packages have the biggest impact when combined with other Weekend Projects Packages. Together, an Appearance Package, Controls Package, and Performance Package will allow a rider to completely stylize their motorcycle by transforming its looks, ergonomics, sound, and engine performance.
For riders looking to improve custom tailor their ergonomics, the Bates Footpegs Project includes footpegs for the rider and passenger made using the original Bates footpeg molds from the 70s, and adjustable mounting clevises that allow for the rider and passenger to get the perfect ergonomic setup for them.
The Street Twin’s engine is a beast waiting to be unleashed. The Performance Tips Project includes stainless steel exhaust tips available in drag pipe or slash cut styles that reduce overall weight and increase horsepower, and engine covers designed to accentuate the Performance Tips’ aesthetic.
The Complete Retro Turn Signal Kits includes smoked-out turn signals pre-mounted to brackets, and plug ‘n play wire harnesses that plug directly into the stock wiring and eliminate the need for splicing the wires.
Just because the new line of motorcycles from Triumph is new doesn’t mean that they can’t have vintage looks. With British Customs’ parts, the new Street Twin can be personalized into a variety of retro styles. The most striking Street Twin build that British Customs has released is a BC Scrambler Edition Street Twin with wrap-around high header tracker exhaust, a Slammer Seat, Mule Tracker Handlebars, Retro Turn Signals, and a number of other bolt-on upgrades that make it look like a full custom build.
Every part included in British Customs’ Weekend Project Packages is proudly made in America with American-sourced materials. For many of the parts, new materials had to be developed to meet British Customs’ high standards of quality.
To support their customers, British Customs developed a Resource Center on their website where they have comprehensive installation instructions, how to guides, buyer’s guides, and even a “Triumph 101” section. The British Customs Resource Center is designed to help riders of any level of experience install their new parts and develop their technical skills. The Triumph 101 section covers basic topics like removing the seat, removing the rear fender, swapping handlebars, and more to help new riders begin their wrenching careers.
New packages are added by the day as new products are released, and are currently available to the public on the British Customs online store.
