At It again...

Well i thought i could get rid of my triumph and replace it with something else but the truth is there is no replacement for a triumph. I originally built and 04 bonnie that some of you might remember.



Ever since selling it i wanted another triumph, about a month ago i got the chance to pick up a totally stock 05 thruxton with 3,800 miles. It is fun to ride but i really hated the blue color and wanted something a bit more custom. With the help of Sean at British Customs i have made a lot of progress on the bike. They have provided:

BC fender eliminator
BC rear turn siginal mounts
BC front and rear turn siginals
BC predator mufflers
BC license plate mount
Hagon rear shocks

I have quite a few more items on order with them that will be going on in the near future. Here are some images of the bike in progress, it isnt finished yet but i thought you fellow triumph heads might like to see some pics.

stock bike with BC predators

Ya hated the blue? sic em Nick. lol.
I think the blue and the yellow ones look a whole lot better with black sidecovers and even your bronze one wouldn't look so good with the sidecovers in bronze. have to agree that she's looking pretty sweet as it is now.

I'm not going to do the side covers bronze, I kinda want to do the bc number plates, or paint the covers black. I'm going with a scrambler style exhaust so I wont need one side
