British Customs at the Barber Vintage Festival

British Customs has spent nearly a decade designing and engineering bolt on products for Triumph Motorcycles.   In the last 10 years BC has developed a large network of Triumph Dealers who have supported the product and the idea that Triumph Motorcycles are a great platform for customization.  Due to British Customs’ involvement with dealers and our experience with customizing Triumphs, we were given the opportunity to send the British Customs Café Racer TV Project on tour.

Prior to the Barber Vintage Festival, the Triumph Thruxton we built for season two of Café Racer TV was on display at a handful of AMA events and after Barber the British Customs Café Racer is set to kick off it’s nationwide dealer tour at Freedom Powersports of Georgia along with the British Customs “Back To Basics” Triumph Bonneville.

Here’s our cafe racer build in action!

With the schedule set, British Customs packed up two sets of race body work, a load of extra parts for the Thruxton Cup racers and the “Back To Basics” British Customs Bonneville and headed out to Birmingham, AL.
We arrived Friday evening meet up with our friends at Triumph Motorcycles to grab our event credentials.  In the lobby we ran into Paul Runion, Nadine DeFreitas, Jason DiSalvo and Bethany DiSalvo, who greeted us with a smile and beer.  After sharing stories and getting to know the team we decided it was time to head to the race paddocks.   What a start to the weekend!
In the upcoming weeks we will be sharing our stories, interviews and images from our five day tour of Barber Vintage Festival and Triumph Dealer Expo.  Stay tuned later this week for a behind the scenes look at Thruxton Cup and its sponsors.  Some features to look forward to are:
