Snow Tiger: Hookie’s Triumph flat tracker is just purrfect

Flat track racing is still going strong in the USA and Europe, and we’re starting to see customizers building personal track bikes between client projects. This chunky Triumph T100R belongs to Hookie Co. founder Nico Mueller—and despite its age, it carries the same sharp aesthetic that the German shop has become known for. Nico originally found the 1967 T100R Tiger (also known as the Daytona) on eBay in the UK, after seeing a post on Sideburn Magazine’s website. Some digging revealed that...

Sleeper: A stealthily upgraded Triumph Street Twin

We’re all for extreme machines that draw a crowd when parked up, but we also love ‘sleeper’ customs—those that keep their performance potential under wraps. At first glance, this Triumph from Amsterdam looks like a regular Street Twin with a mild retro makeover. But it’ll probably get its rider from A to B faster than any other Street Twin in Europe, thanks to a heavily reworked engine and big suspension upgrades. It belongs to sculptor Ram Katzir, whose work is shown all over the world—fr...

Krugger adds street smarts to the Triumph Scrambler

We love show bikes for their cutting edge design concepts, wild engineering and straight-line performance—but they’re not much use in the real world. On the opposite side of the spectrum, there are customs that aim for maximum usability, by cleverly blending form and function. Most builders stick to just one of those camps, but Fred ‘Krugger’ Bertrand plays at both ends of the field. The Belgian maestro has won multiple AMD World Championships, but he’s just as happy to build ‘practical’ bike...

French Bob: A dose of vintage flair for the Triumph Bobber

The success of the Triumph Bobber has not gone unnoticed by the more savvy custom shops. It’s the fastest-selling motorcycle in the history of the British brand, but unfortunately it’s tricky to customize—because Triumph largely ‘got it right’ at the design stage. The French outfit BAAK has just finished this 2020-spec Bonneville Bobber 1200, and it looks superb. But there’s a bigger story than just the bike. Rémi Reguin, boss of the Lyon-based workshop, will open new premises in the USA next...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 31 May, 2020

A sleek and sophisticated Thruxton from Massachusetts, a tiny BMW balance bike from the Netherlands, a rare Royal Enfield Interceptor up for auction, and a bizarre folding WW2 ‘parascooter’ from Excelsior—Britain’s first motorcycle company. BMW K75 balance bike by Roel van Heur A while ago, Roel helped a friend to build a custom K75. Then Roel heard that his mate was expecting a baby—so he decided to build the kid a balance bike, inspired by his dad’s custom. The Dutch designer started by ...

Nothing is Too Hard: A Triumph Trophy bobber from Spain

There’s a whole category of touring bikes that are short on sex appeal but long on character. One such machine is the Triumph Trophy 1200, which is like a two-wheeled version of the Mercedes W123 ‘Beirut Taxi’: it’s simple, reliable and well engineered, and can clock up an improbable mileage if looked after. This heavily modified Trophy comes from TooHard Motor Co., a Spanish garage based just outside Madrid. For the past five years, shop owners Jose and Bea have been restoring and customizi...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 23 February, 2020

A classic Triumph flat tracker from the race director of the Wheels & Waves festival, a Virago influenced by 90s Japanese import culture, and the latest oddity from Lazareth. Ducati Monster S4 by Barn Built Bikes Whether you leave them stock, sprinkle them with aftermarket parts or really got to town on them, old Ducati Monsters are cool. This 2002 Monster S4 used to fall into the second category; loaded up with bolt-ons, but without any serious fabrication work done. So the crew at Barn B...

Out of the blue: A Triumph Trackmaster hiding in Germany

In a world where everyone is screaming for attention, Heinz Lange is an enigma. He has no catchy workshop name, no website and absolutely zero social media presence. He’s simply a retired aficionado with a proclivity for collecting and working on classics—like the Norton Manx that’s parked in his living room. That’s why we only found out about Heinz via a friend of a friend. And he only popped up on their radar because he’d just finished this stunning Triumph Trackmaster. Heinz built the T...

50 not out: A Thruxton to celebrate Tamarit’s 50th build

Building a custom motorcycle isn’t exactly a walk in the park. But turning customization into a viable full-time business is even harder. So it’s uplifting to see custom shops enjoying big measures of success. Spain’s Tamarit Motorcycles are in a good space right now. They opened four years ago as a two-man operation, and built just five custom motorcycles and created five bolt-on Triumph parts in their first year. Now the team is 14-strong, there are 179 parts in their catalog, and over 50 b...

Textbook Refresh: Untitled upgrades the Thruxton 900

We’re usually all about high-end customs here, but not everyone has the budget to put an extreme machine in their garage. And we know that many readers have lightly-customized daily riders—often older bikes that are subtly fettled without compromising practicality too much. Untitled Motorcycles have built customs at both ends of the spectrum, mixing commissions from manufacturer marketing departments with low-key but classy BMW airheads. This latest Thruxton build is a textbook example of...

BAAK builds a modern day ‘Bathtub’ Triumph

Triumph are great at recalling the past via the design of their modern day classics. But there’s one element Hinckley hasn’t brought back: the infamous ‘bathtub’ fairing. Edward Turner’s idea to enclose the rear wheel first appeared on the 1957 Triumph 3TA ‘Twenty One,’ and later the 1959 5TA ‘Speed Twin.’ It was a move to offer superior weatherproofing for British riders—but it was a total flop in the States. American customers at the time wanted bikes that were more stripped down. In Ca...

A Rennsport-inspired Street Triple 675

For riders of a sporting persuasion, the first-generation Street Triple is close to the ideal motorcycle. It’s light and handles beautifully, and the 106 hp engine is an absolute peach. We love the iconic twin headlights that came with that model, but some folks don’t. If you’re not a fan, there’s inspiration right here for a custom job—courtesy of Jett Design and Motorelic of Virginia, USA. Andrew Jett describes this Street Triple as a “lightweight race-inspired build, paying homage to t...

A Triumph sidecar built to deliver cold brew coffee

We love sidecars, but they’re usually sedate rather than sporty. And a classic café racer with a chair? That’s even more rare. So we love the look of this most unusual combination from sunny Queensland in Australia. The ‘Cold Brew Cafe Racer’ comes from Tom Gilroy of Purpose Built Moto, and it’s built around a Triumph Scrambler. The project started like many others: A couple of blokes meeting up for a beer at their local haunt. Tom’s favorite spot is the iconic Sandbar restaurant in Surfer...

Pure and simple: A Bonneville T120 from Central Java

The 21st century motorcycle is a complex beast, crammed with electronics and trick engineering in the name of one-upmanship and regulatory approval. But there’s something strangely compelling in the simplicity of an older bike from less complicated times. And they don’t come more stripped down than this 1972 T120 from Pitstop Motor Werk. Pitstop is a team of three led by an Indonesian builder called Agung. They’re based in the hot and humid province of Central Java, and like most Indonesi...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 10 March, 2019

There’s something for everyone this week. We’ve got a Bonneville beach cruiser, a pair of high-performance Triumph Speed Triples, and a Ducati Panigale covered in occult symbols.

Old Gold: A classic Triumph Trident T150V restomod

The torque of a twin, the top end power of an inline four, and the sound of angry bees. What’s not to like? Rob Glenton of Fremantle, Western Australia has a penchant for old British bikes. So when a solid condition 1973 T150V Trident presented itself, he jumped at the chance to relive his younger years on a classic Triumph triple restomod. “I’ve always liked the triple: they are so different to the twins, and custom examples are very rare. The sound of a bike is as important to me as the...

Tastemaker: A Scrambler built by the Editor of Meta

Ben Giese is a man of exceptional taste. As the creative director and editor-in-chief of the aesthetically superior motorcycle magazine, Meta, he has to be. But he’s also a rider, who grew up racing motocross. So when his 2017-model Triumph Scrambler went under the knife, both form and function vied for top spot. “I wanted to transform it into a true ‘scrambler‘ that could take me well beyond the paved city streets of Denver, and deep into the mountains and deserts of the Southwest,” Ben t...

Review: The 2019 Triumph Speed Twin

Most manufacturers have at least a couple of retro-styled motorcycles on sale. But Triumph has more skin in that game than anyone else: Hinckley’s modern classics outnumber their other models by a significant margin. The new Speed Twin adds yet another name to the roster. So is the range too crowded now, or is the Speed Twin different enough to be significant? I headed to the usually sunny Mediterranean island of Mallorca to find out. The Speed Twin gets its name from the groundbreaking pa...

Sleeper: A subtle Triumph Bonneville from 2LOUD

We’ve profiled 2LOUD’s work for almost two years now. From day one, builder ‘Max’ Yicheng has consistently delivered elegant and harmonious machines from his one-man-shop in Taipei, Taiwan. In fact, his work is so tasteful and restrained, the ‘2LOUD’ moniker borders on ironic. Those are rare traits in today’s custom world, and they’re why we keep a close eye on Max’s output. And this custom Triumph Bonneville exemplifies the 2LOUD ethos. It’s so subtle that you’d be tempted to pass it over—bu...

The 2019 Triumph Speed Twin revealed: specs and images

One of the most famous names in the history of British motorcycling has returned: the Triumph Speed Twin. It first caused a stir in 1938, when Edward Turner’s parallel twin offered unprecedented levels of power for a 500 cc bike. The original Speed Twin created a template for many other manufacturers to follow, and the lineage is still visible in Triumph’s ‘Modern Classics’ range today. But the new Speed Twin is a very different beast. With 1200 cc and almost four times the horsepower of...

Street Sleeper: Bunker customizes the new Street Twin

The pre-2016 Triumph Bonneville is one of the shining stars of the custom scene: a bike that only gets better as you tweak it. And you don’t need a grinder, even for a fairly heavy custom job—there’s a huge network of aftermarket parts suppliers. The bestselling model in the Modern Classics range is now the ‘new’ liquid-cooled Street Twin. But will it respond to subtle mods as well as its illustrious predecessor? This new low-key build from Bunker Custom Cycles suggests the answer is a resoun...
