A Triumph Scrambler In Dirt Bike Clothing

bc1bc2bc3bc4bc10bc6This feature for all those among you loving modern classic bikes dressed for track spins, canyon carving and even road day trips. A bike for a great evasion, reminiscent of the Steve McQueen’s iconic Triumph TR6 Trophy in the 1963 film The Great Escape. British Customs decided to buy a stock 2012 Triumph Scrambler and see where it took them. As a matter of facts, in several directions, the bike having been customized at least 3 times for some paved and unpaved adventures, then for pure dirt track racing (yes, it was raced during the last Hell On Wheels “Hot August Nights”) and now the version seen here combining several influences, both dirt and street tracking, for hard competition on tough terrain or recreational fun on the road.

bc12bc13The modern factory Scrambler reflects the look of the 1960’s Triumph twins and keeps the classic, rebellious style that so many riders love. An excellent donor bike to prepare this machine in the spirit of carefree times when all you needed was a bike and somewhere to ride. The British Customs Dirt Bike was ridden 100 miles to the recent Sixth Annual Quail Motorcycle Gathering in Carmel, CA where it received 2 industry awards. It’s remarkable when you know that all the British Customs parts are bolt-on and can be installed with basic tools and minimal experience, helping riders achieve their vision for what their bike should be. For those tempted by such modern classic Triumph style, below is the parts list. British Customs.

    One bike for no purpose. Take a reasonable road bike and turn it into a useless dirt bike.

    Just the tool for when your local road crew seals the road surface with a fine layer of rock-chips.
    (they give ya a day or two to “play” on it before it gets sweep off…… plus ya get to watching brake-in-bikers tiptoe over that stuff like it was ice)

    I like the modern Bonnies allot.
    But triumph need to replace the tank with one that does not have outside seams. It cheapens the package.
    So do the plastic guards.
    They should at least offer options on the guards.
    And really the tank needs to be tidied up ! !
    Anybody out there ? just nod if you can hear me………………………………………………………………………….
