Customer Profile: 2011 Thruxton – Daniel N.

December 21st, 2011 No comments
British Customs Triumph

We just got these great pictures from Daniel N. in Philly of his 2011 Triumph Thruxton 900. We see that Daniel couldn’t resist the best selling British Customs Predator Exhaust system, which improves both sound and performance on his bike. Using our Lucas Fender Eliminator Kit, he was able to clean up the tail end of his Thruxton. And for a few final touches, Daniel installed these simple bolt-on solutions: the Sixty8 Series Sprocket Cover and Lifter Arm Cover, plus he upgraded his handlebars and relocated his ignition. Great work, Daniel! Thanks for sharing your photos. Read the rest of this entry »

Customer Profile: 2006 Thruxton – Nick C.

Nick C. from Chicago, IL sent us these pictures of his 2006 Triumph Thruxton. As with many of our customers, Nick installed our best-selling Predator Exhaust.  This exhaust is designed to increase performance and sound while upgrading the overall look of your Triumph. Nick also installed the SuperBar Handlebars but put his own twist on the installation, installing them flipped upside down to give his Thruxton a much more aggressive look.

Check out these photos of this custom 2005 Triumph Thruxton from Todd K. in Antigo, WI. We love your new paint job and the aluminum rims! We’re also digging the cut-out clover Ace Cafe logo and the Triumph Speedmaster tank emblem. Todd cleaned up the tail end of his bike with the British Custom Lucas Fender Eliminator Kit and coupled it with Square Brushed Turn Signals. Using our Direct Mount Reservoir Kit, Todd was also able to clean up the handlebar section. Read the rest of this entry »

Customer Profile: 2010 Bonneville T100 – Joel B.

November 11th, 2011 No comments

Not too long ago, Joel B. from Aurora, CO visited our shop to get some help with his bike. We were glad to have him come by, and he sent us these pictures of his 2010 Triumph Bonneville T100.

He wasted no time in improving his performance and sound by replacing the stock exhausts with the best selling British Customs Predator Exhausts. We can only assume he was looking for the classic look of  a Triumph of yesteryear but wanted all the power and technology of today. Some other customizations include a fly screen single seat/cowl and slicer plate/cowl lettering.

Joel isn’t finished yet! He has the British Customs Pedestrian Slicer Kit next to install to further help him give his motorcycle the classic Triumph look.

New! Curved Risers for your Triumph Speedmaster

November 8th, 2011 No comments

Check out the latest from British Customs for your Triumph Speedmaster! The new Speedmaster Curved Risers provide a more comfortable and secure riding position.

Stock risers on the Triumph Speedmaster can be uncomfortable, forcing you to constantly lean forward as you ride. The swept back design of the British Customs Curved Risers pushes the stock drag bar by approximately 1” back and ¼” lower. (See stock vs. British Customs Curved Risers image below.)

The new British Customs Curved Risers feature ball milled decorative lines and a smooth radius all around. Designed specifically for your Speedmaster, the Curved Risers come in a show quality chrome finish and will match the lines of your Triumph.

As with all British Customs products, these Curved Risers for your Speedmaster are made from high quality material, a simple bolt on solution, and a direct replacement for your stock risers.

Customer Profile: Wayne J. – 2003 Bonneville T100

November 6th, 2011 No comments

Thanks to Wayne J. from Santa Maria, CA for sending us these pictures of his great Triumph Bonneville T100.

Wayne installed a true set of racing carburetors with the British Customs FCR 39mm Carburetor. These carbs are easy to work on and have plenty of adjustments to make sure your bike is dialed in and running at its best. The BC Air Box Removal Kit is one of the most cost effective ways to increase the performance of your Triumph Bonneville. High-flowing air filters have been installed, opening up the bike’s intake system and allowing increased air flow to the motor. Wayne further improved the performance of his Triumph by upgrading to Performance Spark Plug Wires allowing for quicker acceleration, increased horsepower and torque and higher top speed.

Upgrading the performance of his Bonneville T100 wasn’t the only important thing to Wayne. Wayne put in a lot of work to get his motorcycle to look just the way he wanted it. He installed an updated version of the classic Lucas taillight and turn signals, headlight visor, Napoleon Bar End Mirrors, Tracker 1″ Handlebars and Solo Seat. He finished his bike off with Shorty Front and Rear Fenders and a nice flat black paint job.

Customer Profile: Shawn F. – 2012 Bonneville Mag Wheel

November 3rd, 2011 No comments

“British Customs truly accomplished their mission, and helped me make an Amazing Modern Cafe!” – Shawn F.

We were recently sent these beautiful photos of a custom 2012 Triumph Bonneville Mag Wheel from Georgetown, TX. Shawn F. was looking to create a modern cafe, and we are proud to be a part of this process. Shawn took advantage of the British Customs Bonneville Mag Wheel Predator Performance Package to get the best selling performance package designed and tested to work together to give you the best performance gain for your dollar.

Shawn upgraded his turn signals and relocated them. This was made simple with the British Customs Turn Signal Relocation Bracket and Turn Signal Block Offs. He picked up some LSL Crash Pads as a preventive manager to prevent the bike from spinning in the event of a crash. And after upgrading his handlebars, he installed the BC Brake Line which is shorter than stock and prevent bunching.

Shocks, spark plugs, map and so much more were upgraded on this Bonneville. There are so many upgrades and customizations on Shawn’s bike that we simply can not mention them all!

Shawn, we love what you did with your Triumph. It is truly a great modern cafe racer!

Customer Profile: Jarred B. – 2009 Speedmaster

British Customs Speedmaster

Jarred B. from Long Beach, Calif. recently sent us this photo of his gorgeous 2009 Triumph Speedmaster. We can see that he has taken the time to upgrade both the look and performance of his Triumph. Jarred installed our Bomber Silencers, improving the performance of his bike while providing a retro look and sound. He cleaned up the tail end by using our Side Mount License Plate Holder to relocate his license plate to the side of the swing arm.

Replacing his stock wheel with a custom 21 inch spoke wheel gave his Speedmaster a much more aggressive look and improved riding stability. And amongst several other customization, Jarred has bobbed his rear fender, removed his front fender, and powder coated the front forks/front hub.
