The Hell On Wheels Hot August Nights, Dirt Track Classic

August 14th, 2013 1 comment

 

British Customs was a proud sponsor of Meatball’s 1st Hell On Wheels Dirt Track Event. Meatball’s events are motorcycling at its purest. There are limited restrictions and endless possibilities for a good time. It sounded like a great platform for British Customs to do some testing and have some fun, so we entered three bikes into the event.

Bike #1:  Our first bike to enter the Hell On Wheels Challenge was the British Customs Desert Sled. The Desert Sled is a stripped dirt bike inspired Bonneville. Complete with dirt bike style fenders, stripped down controls, a new BC prototype drag pipe system, and knobby dirt bike tires this Triumph Bonneville was ready to dominate the track. The Desert Sled was ridden and tested by Sean D. who took three 1st place finishes and one 2nd place. Congratulations!

 

Bike #2:  Our second bike to enter the Hell On Wheels event was British Customs’ own team members daily rider “June”. Heath C.’s Triumph Bonneville was brought to the shop already rocking 95,000 cross country touring miles. Inspired by the infamous daredevil, Evel Knievel, “June” was overhauled for the track. Heath’s goal was to create a bike that he could dirt track but still ride comfortably on the street. The project began by reviewing the stock Triumph Bonneville’s driveline and controls. We started with the wheels and replaced the stock rims with 19” Excel rims and DOT flat track tires. Next we swapped out the risers and replaced the stock controls with upgraded 7/8” controls. Lastly, we installed a set of British Customs prototype Flat Track Triple Trees.  Only his second time racing at a dirt track event, Heath took home a 2nd and 4th place finish and slid out two times pushing his Bonneville as hard as he could.

Bike #3:  Our last bike to enter the challenge was a Triumph Scrambler acquired after the filming of the re-make “The Great Escape”. We recently built the Scrambler into an adventure bike, but quickly realized we needed a street tracker in the shop. Brian Catterson, former Editor of Motorcyclist Magazine, rode the project tracker and took home a 3rd place finish.

We arrived to the Perris ¼ mile dirt track with the goal of testing a few new designs and came out winners. It was great to see the Modern Triumphs go head to head with lighter more nimble bikes and come out on top. We proved that, with little to no modification, the Triumph can easily go from the street to the track! We will be posting video of the action and details of each build in the upcoming weeks.

To all British Customs Customers,

British Customs over the last year has received a great deal of recognition in the press for our design and development work on Triumph Motorcycles.   With all this recognition and our loyal customer base, we have grown rapidly.   With the growth, come growing pains, which unfortunately our loyal customers have felt the effects of.  We would like to extend our apologies and let you know we are in the process of upgrading to a state of the art Order Management System that will display stock levels and back order notifications in real time on our website.  Also, we have recently added staff and are setting up new procedures to make sure we continue to offer the best parts we can with the best customer service possible.

While we are in the process of upgrading our system and facilities, we would like to assure you that we are taking the necessary steps to handle the new demand to continue to improve as a company.   Please understand these changes will not happen overnight and we appreciate your patience.

To back-up our systems, we have added staff to assure more personalized service and customer feedback.  Leading this function, Matt Caldwell joins us with six years of Triumph experience.  He heads up our Customer Care and Product Specialist Department.  Also new to the British Custom’s team is Joe Erickson who will be working with suppliers to assure stock levels are maintained, to meet our increasing demand.  You should receive an email within 24 business hours of placing your order.  Please check your spam filter if you have not received an email within 24 business hours of placing your order. Or you can check your status on-line via our order status system.   Sean remains our National Sales Director and he, along with other members of the British Customs Team may be reached for questions at (877) 999-BRIT or Chat Live with one of our product specialist.

We like to think “Service is our most important product” If for any reason we are not measuring up please let us know firsthand.  We are here to serve.
