British parallel twins played an enormous role in the rise and evolution of the scrambler genre, with Bonnies and Beezers routinely being utilized for these early dual-sport projects. And though the single-cylinder dirt bike has hugely raised the bar in terms of off-road performance prowess, there’s still something to be said for the Brit twin as a basis for scrambler projects, as thoroughly evidenced by Luis Correia of the Maria Riding Company’s latest scrambler build, a 2005 Triumph Bonneville T100 that’s been transformed into what Luis has christened the “OUTLAW.”
The mid-aughts Bonnie was stripped down to a rolling chassis before receiving a custom subframe that supports a modified take on a traditional scrambler saddle, perfectly feeding into a flat-bottomed tank off of an old RD400 two-stroker. A circular headlight, aluminum rear fender, and side number boards all help to push the build squarely into classic scrambler territory, while a perforated skid plate, LSL bars, knobby tires, and a custom stainless steel exhaust system all give the Triumph a more modern feel while seriously upping its off-road abilities. After thoroughly putting it through its paces in the dirt, Luis finished off the project with a custom livery and the necessary bits needed to achieve road-legal status.
