British Customs was able to provide a few key parts to help make the build a success! In the Aug/Sept issue of Cafe Racer, the team matched their Wreck to Winner Bonneville up against a Moto Guzzi V7. Read the full article below to see how the Bonneville did against the competition.

Bike of the Month Contest Starts in September

August 22nd, 2011 No comments

We hope you’ve been taking a lot of good pictures on your rides, vacations and trips because we warned you that our next Bike of the Month Contest would be travel themed. Starting Sept. 1st, you’ll be able to submit your bike photos for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate from British Customs.

Although it would be great to seeĀ  bikes at the Great Wall of China, Statue of Liberty or the Colosseum, photos just need to have your Triumph with any kind of famous landmark or tourist spot. If you don’t have any good recent pictures, please feel free to submit older pictures from previous trips.

We know our customers can get creative with their custom bikes, let’s see how creative you guys can get with these photos and this contest. Check out the photo idea above.

For more details on the contest, please visit this page.
