Triumph Bonneville | By Down & Out

The Triumph Bonneville is one of our all time favorite motorbikes, we have featured several custom Bonneville´s over the years, our latest crush is this masterpiece by British custom specialists Down & Out, based on a standard T100 SE. The bike was commissioned by the founder of Bike Shed (a custom motorbike culture website), and this build is all about chassis parts, weight loss, the right design & paint, and throwing away the bits that look ugly – ending up with a bike he can put on a pedestal in the living room, or ride to work on every day. To us, the guys at Down & Out Cafe Racers have nailed it. watch the video of the build
