Triumph is delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural Triumph Bobber Build-Off custom competition, to showcase the success and beauty of our Bonneville Bobber, and the vast array of personalisation options available.
The launch of the competition has provided an exclusive opportunity for our UK dealers to take on the challenge and produce a one-off custom Bobber within their dealerships using an extensive range of our official Bonneville Bobber accessories and their imaginations.
Triumph customers and fans will be given the chance to vote through our Triumph UK Facebook page for the best custom Bobber, with the winner of the competition being announced at the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride event in September.
Our entries have been revealed and voting is now open. Check out our build off entries from Ashford & East London below. Voting closes 29th August.
Ashford | Calavera
Jack Lilley Ashford (JL Customs) has built several different styles of Bobber customs over the years, such as their HighGloss, HotRod and Rusty. They wanted to do something daring and never done before, and the team is always looking for an excuse to get creative with new custom designs. What better design to show off their creativity than an East LA Mexican Lowrider inspired Bobber!
The Jack Lilley team went to Surrey Customs to produce the all-important tank body design for their low rider paintwork, resulting in their Gold 7 Red Candy with Gold Leaf design.
JL Customs has added custom-made tank brackets, raising the front of the tank by an inch, as well as 120 spoke gold wheels by Canyon Wheels to target that true Mexican vibe for its Bobber.
East London | HED Turner
With the historic Speed Twin name hitting the showrooms again, and known as a legendary motorcycle that gave us travel, the inspiration for this build came from a collaborative team meeting at Triumph East London which arrived at a point where they looked back at iconic bikes of the past. Edward Turner was in mind.
Technician Wayne Skilton has worked on custom builds and pulled in a contact he had in Chris Sutcliffe of MetalMorphic. They decided they wanted to replace the forks with a girder style system that will be a great ride and a nod to the 1930's designer too.
This custom Bobber has been shaped in aluminium and polished to a high gloss finish, with hand painted decals to complete the full look inspired by Ed Turner's vision.
Triumph East London has added bespoke handcrafted metal work with additional Speedmaster headlight and handlebars from the official Triumph parts range.
