Seems weird to say it, but there are actually riders out there who spend their whole life on non-customized bikes. Riders who are perfectly happy using a factory-prepared bike in exactly the same state that it left the maker’s premises. Stock pipes. Stock rubber. Hell, even the air in the tires probably has the whiff of aftershave from the factory worker who inflated them. Yes – such people do exist. Maybe the owner of this bike, was actually one of them. But through luck or through fate, He stumbled across the rather bitchin’ custom work of us from Studio Motor and the rest, as they say, is Historia.
When our customer bought his new Triumph Bonneville T100 with standard looking he was impressed with our first built with Triumph Bonneville, so then he contacted us to completely change the look of his bike. He wanted us to build an industrial-looking bike, but with some retro touches at the same time. The first step was to change the original rims with TK Japan Spoke rims 18X3.50 inch and 17X5.00 inch and wrapped with Metzeler Karoo 3 150/70-18 and 170/60-17 for front and rear, and after that it was all up to us. After that we converted the original rear shock to a 360 mm Showa Progressive rear shock. Up front we have mounted a set of 53-42 Upside Down forks to really improve handling. To update the bikes braking performance we then mounted Brembo twin calipers at the front and a single Nissin caliper at the rear. Here comes the bodywork, we made a front and rear fender with a minimalist style made from 1.2 mm galvanized material. After the bodywork was done, Komet Studio made his move! We choose candy orange from Sikkens and decorated with a dark grey simply line at the top. Completing the last project, RSD handlebar and handgrip was selected to provide ‘the enjoyment of riding’. Changed an original indicator with Motogadget Motoclassic. The DRL headlight was attached at the front and custom 2 in 2 exhaust system was selected to drag up the classic theme with a strong sound.
Do you know of a rider who has yet to appreciate the sublime beauty of riding a bike that is the only one of it’s kind in the world? You do? Then save them. Save them now. Do it for all of you. Do it for Studio Motor. But most of all, do it for us. And please welcome DEMITE “NOT DAM’N IT”.
