Though Frateschi Garage has been in operation for several years now, the São Paulo shop has been on a hot streak over the last six months with a slew of increasingly noteworthy builds, first with a custom Suzuki DRZ tracker with a bespoke fuel-injection system and then and an equally impressive street scrambler based on BMW’s F650. Never one to rest on his laurels, shop founder, Renato Frateschi has just completed another breathtaking transformation of an awkward turn-of-the-millennium adventure bike, this time turning a 2003 Triumph Tiger 955i into a stripped-down minimalistic street scrambler christened the “Street Tiger.”
The fuel-injected three-cylinder adventure bike has been completely torn down and built back up with a sportier Triumph Daytona tank, a stubby TIG-welded subframe, and a ribbed tuck-and-roll saddle. Performance upgrades come from 43mm inverted Showa forks, an upgraded mono-shock, and Brembo calipers linked to Aeroquip hoses. The project’s one-off headlight assembly, turn signals, fenders, license plate holder, relocated battery box, and suspension guard have all been designed in CAD before being 3D-printed in ABS HT plastic filament. Rounding out the transformation is are yellow Halo LED headlights, a modern TFT display, knobby Heinedau K60 tires, tracker bars, a custom three-into-two exhaust culminating in a pair of Yoshimura cans, and a black livery with contrasting yellow accents and framework.
