Triumph T120 Bobber

Our Friday custom motorbike crush comes from France. French BMX rider Christophe Tonton wanted a hardtail Triumph bobber, he contacted French custom builders Southsiders MC to start working on his dream. This impressive build started off as a Triumph T120, it was stripped down of all extraneous parts and fitted with Dunlop tyres, a custom frame, a custom exhaust, and finished overall with a raw, utilitarian aesthetic. Check out some more photos of this spectacular machine after the jump.
