2012 Triumph Bonneville T100

This T100 is just about ready to go. It came in for a few changes, mostly bolt on stuff. We did a set of black Sun aluminum rims with black spokes, 17x3.5 up front and a 17x5.5 out back. To make room for the 1800mm tire, we had to get rid of the rear fender. Opened up the exhaust and intake with British Customs slip-ons and air box kit. Swapped out the stock headlight brackets for a set off the Thuxton. We also changed the mirrors and levers, ASV on the levers and CRG on the mirrors. The engine got a set of The Speed Merchant covers, stater and sprocket. They were both powder coated to match the gray in the paint along with the bars, chain guard and primary cover. We did that because we were trying get rid as much chrome and shiny stuff as possible. The rest of the motor was finished in black and the header was ceramic coated. The covered shocks are from Hagon. We tore them apart and had the covers powder coated too.   Last but not least was the seat, the popsicle stick had to go. This one was done by  Mauricio Aguilar, he always does a great job. He talked me into letting him do the rectangle pattern, and he was right, it looks looks great. Just a few things to do before it hits the street but we're getting there.
It's been a bit of a change, working on these Triumphs but, sometimes change is good. Check it out...
