Customer Profile: James Gyldenvand’s 2008 Triumph Bonneville

October 30th, 2011 No comments

This 2008 Triumph Bonneville has become an obsession for James Gyldenvand from Johnstown, NY. Nearly every stock part on this bike has been upgraded to an aftermarket one. For taller riders like James (who is 6’ 2”), upgrading the rear sets and tracker bar has made a huge difference to the fitment and comfort of his ride.

James has engine upgrades planned next, and while he asks for someone to cure him of his “obsessive affliction,” here at British Customs, we only encourage this sort of behavior.

Featured British Customs upgrades:

Ceramic Coated Black Header Pipes

Air Box Removal Kit

Air Injection Removal Kit


Other featured upgrades:

Ignition Relocation Kit

Billet Clutch Cable Bracket

CRG Folding Billet Bar-End Mirrors

Clamp-On Style Bar End Mirrors Are Possible

British Customs Clamp-Ons

Don’t feel stuck with your stock rear view mirrors. British Customs has engineered the Triumph Motorcycle Bar End Mirror Adapter for your Bonneville, Thruxton, Scrambler, America or Speedmaster. Our clamp-on mirror adapter will work with Triumph clamp-on mirrors or any aftermarket mirrors that fit onto a 21.85mm surface. The British Customs Bar End Mirror Adapter replaces the factory bar end and opens you up to a wider selection of mirrors for your bike.

Cover Up Your Mirror Mounting Holes

October 25th, 2011 No comments

If you’ve relocated your mirrors, you’ll see a very noticeable hole where the stock mirrors were mounted. A simple solution to keeping your bike looking clean and sleek is to use the British Customs Screw In Mirror Hole Caps. Each cap has a domed design to match the contours of the stock mounting location. Unlike other caps, our Screw In Mirror Hole Caps are manufactured from 6061 aluminum and anodized black for superior weather resistance.

Get a Richer Sound and Increase Power to Your Scrambler

British Customs has engineered a 3″ reverse cone exhaust designed to slip over any 1/5″ pipe, easily slipping onto the end of headers without additional hanging brackets. This small package will produce a deep rich exhaust note that you’d expect from our much larger pipes. The Mini Reverse Cone Exhaust‘s sound and back pressure are created through a 1.5″ mechanical baffle that will never require repacking. Click her for more info on the Mini Reverse Cone Exhaust and see how you can unleash the full power of your Triumph Scrambler.

We are very impressed with Frank Falco from Lindenhurst, NY. Frank transformed the look of his 2007 Triumph Bonneville T100 in just five hours!

We can see that style and look are very important to him. Frank cleaned up the back end of his T100 with the British Customs Fender Eliminator Kit and cleaned up the front end with the BC Front Turn Signal Relocation Bracket.

It’s a really nice looking bike. Thanks for sharing the photo with us, Frank.

Get easy access to whatever you store under your seat without the use of tools! These Low Profile Seat Screws are machined with an extension shaft that features a broached end finished with a knurl.
