August 18th, 2011 2 comments

Brin Morris of Venice, CA recently sent us details on his customized 2002 Triumph Bonneville America.With the help of British Customs, Ade Packett Motorcycle Repairs and the Bonneville America forums, Brin was able to achieve the look and performance he always wanted for his Triumph. His goal was to strip it down and keep that classic/retro look without sacrificing performance and comfort. Some modifications include air box removal, low profile rear turn signals, battery relocation, removal of passenger foot peg plates, and powder coated wheels.

“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.

The Black & Blue Speedmaster

November 26th, 2010 1 comment

From the very beginning the idea was to make a bobber that had character and personality throughout. The bobber concept stayed in tact but we added our own quality styling with British Customs products and ingenuity. The result was a modern bobber with the attitude of a bar hopping rigid. The list is endless from a 21″ powder coated front end to British Customs performance parts featuring a fat tire covered by a custom bobbed fender. This is a overall motorcycle that is a new favorite among us at British Customs that we are proud to call our own.

Hot Rod Your Triumph Cruiser!

November 26th, 2010 4 comments

We at British Customs have used the combination of this 1 1/4″ radius drag bar with the use of custom length control cables on multiple build projects. This handlebar offers the option of hiding your electrical wiring internally while increasing the diameter 1/4″ compared to stock. The results produced a more comfortable riding position, hot rod styling, and overall custom look.

A Piece of Racing History.

November 24th, 2010 No comments

The “Monza” designed gas cap has a long racing history.  This popular design was introduced on many European sport- cars and was adapted to British Motorbikes in the 1950′s.  British-Customs wanted to continue the racing heritage by developing this “Mock Monza” Gas Cap.  This cap is a jewel compared to the boring stock cap.  The “Mock Monza” will install in minutes and maintains stock spin-on/spin-off operation.
