With a history stretching back well over a century, Barbour International is undoubtedly one of the most legendary moto gear brands of all time, with a deep catalog of offerings that includes, among many other feats, producing the first waxed riding jackets. Wanting to celebrate its illustrious past, the British outfit has called on Portugal’s Unik Edition to whip up a vintage-inspired sled based on the quintessential British bike: the Triumph Bonneville.
Starting with a 2014 Scrambler model of the Bonnie, the Lisbon customs shop has redone the front-end of the build with a raised brushed aluminum fender, headlight brush guard, vintage chrome off-road bars, and an analog Motogadget tach set in bespoke brackets. The rear-end has also received a matching brushed fender, an antique-style round taillight while moving forward the stock subframe was lopped and swapped for a one-off unit paired with a custom diamond-stitched leather saddle. The crown jewel on the build is unequivocally the 865cc twin’s bespoke high-mount dual-pipe exhaust system which is capped off with a one-off hole-punched heat shield. Now riding on Pirelli Rally rubber, the Triumph has received a custom gloss black livery with yellow accents — resulting in the project’s monicker, “Black & Yellow.”
