“Back to Basics” Bonneville Build

December 2nd, 2010 4 comments

A British Customs masterpiece, this Bonneville has been featured in motorcycle shows and is known worldwide.  This Bonneville build established our presence in the Triumph community and shows off what really can be done to modern day Triumphs.  No mirrors or gauges, we wanted a simple, aggressive, functional bike build that would turn heads.  There is just something sexy about a “black bike”.

Chuck’s Red Hot Thruxton

Check out Chuck’s Thruxton!  This bike can be found carving up the canyons above Los Angeles, CA.  Chuck’s aggressive riding style has made him mount a radar detector on his handlebars to hunt down those pesky ticket happy cops before they find him.

“Beach Boy” Triumph

December 1st, 2010 No comments

Influenced by the Original Schwinn Beach Cruiser, British Customs has built something special out of a Triumph Speedmaster.  This bike has turned heads up and down Hwy 1, otherwise known as the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California.  The “Beach Boy” build was our way of appreciating the old fashion surf style of the 60′s.

Changes to Triumph’s Modern Classic Line-Up

December 1st, 2010 No comments

There have been many changes to Triumph’s Modern Classic Line Up.  From 2009 to Triumph’s current production Thruxton, these bikes are no longer equipped with clip-ons.  Triumph has adopted a 1″ handle bar and riser setup with an integrated Brake Master Cylinder Reservoir (standard on the Bonneville).  We feel that Triumph has been forced to make this change, due to our great success and popularity of our “Clip-On Removal Kit” aka CRK Kit for the 2008 and older Thruxton’s.  Currently Bonneville’s are now being built with handlebar’s and risers from 1″ to 7/8, this opens up options to new handlebar/riser setups i.e. Ace Bar on 7/8″ Risers.  Below is a first generation Thruxton equipped with a Renthal Fat Bar, Fat Bar Risers, Billet Master Cylinder Reservoir, Control Clamps and Pazzo Racing Levers._MG_1934
