Take a standard 900cc Triumph Scrambler, add a hint of bespoke tailoring from Barbour – all styled by custom bike builders, Spirit of the 70s – and you’ve got one cool looking bike.
This one-off creation oozes Shoreditch street cred, with realigned front forks, stylish sawn-off ‘Enduro’ exhaust and the imaginative use of authentic Barbour wax cotton on the seat. Polished chrome decal on the tank and retro-fitted, high performance shocks finish the look.
Other notable enhancements to the bike include mini LED indicators front and rear; Spirit carbon mudguards; motocross-style handlebars; Bates-style headlight and LED brakelight; Oury grips and a shortened rear frame. Paintwork was designed by Spirit of the 70s and created by D-Lucks of Brighton.
The bike will be unveiled at the Triumph-sponsored BSMC III event (www.TheBikeShed.cc), teaser video here:http://vimeo.com/92252471, which takes place at Tobacco Dock, London, on 24/25 May. Tickets for the BSMC III can be purchased here: http://thebikeshed.cc/product/bsmc-iii-2014-event-ticket/
Following its unveiling at the BSMC III, the bike will be available for viewing at Triumph Live which takes place on 12 July 2014 at Gaydon Heritage Motor Centre (www.triumph-live.co.uk).
