A custom bike is more than just the sum of its parts; it tells a story about the life and times of the machine and human, woven together by the dreams and desires of the one who will call the keys their own. When it comes to building bikes, it’s no different. People will tell you their approach is best and that any other way is wrong, but the reality is you just do what feels right and hope for the best. Like with this our new latest build, our customer came to our workshop with his brand new 2015 Triumph Bonneville T100 and want to changed with a Cafe Racer style. He suggested us to build his dream and we certainly knows the best options when he comes to bringing a bike to life. So…Ladies and Gentleman, we’d like to introduce you THE FLUTTER that we built from Triumph Bonneville T100 as a donor bike.
Helping to give the bike it’s sporting stance, the front end is fitted with a set of 53 mm Upside Down front end, donated by a Ducati Monster, set with black clubman handlebar were the next addition paired with an original retro style headlight. At the rear sits we still trusted an original Triumph shocks. Rim choice for both front and rear is TK Japan 18X3.50 inch and 18X5.00 inch, shod in Metzeler Roadtec tread rubber. Tire specifications on this build are 120/70-18 on the front and 160/60-18 on the rear, giving that awesome balloon profile that café racers desire. To ensure the custom machine pulls up in a hurry, brakes all round are Nissin cylinder equipped and Brembo caliper for front. We fabricated a hornet tail and front fender used a galvanized plate 1.2 mm. Finally, the whole package was painted by Komet Studio in the colours of white and gold stripe, sing Sikkens paint products.
With the build finished, there is only one thing left to do, and it is best summed up by ourselves: “Let’s do the ton, brother!” and please welcome THE FLUTTER!
