2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber By Modification Motorcycles

Feb 1, 2018

Standing out from the crowd is the objective of custom motorcycles, with builders continually pushing the limits of how wild designs can get while still being able to ride down the road. Modification Motorcycles, as the name implies, is a custom builder and parts distributor in Paris, FR that knows exactly how to garner the right type of attention, as clearly displayed on their 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber build.

Raphael Bougeot and his team of builders, Florian and Morgan, set out to take the already unique looking factory Bobber to the next level. Starting with the front end, the crew swapped out the stock unit for a fork and front wheel from a Thruxton R in order to accommodate a 17-inch front wheel for a more balanced, yet aggressive look. This also required custom triple clamps to be machined, which gave perfect reason to swap the original instrument panel for an elegantly integrated display from Motogadget. The standard Triumph seat cover was canned and Stacy Adams-esq red crocodile skin was stretched over in its place, then a minimal LED tail light was added to keep the bike legit. Culminating touches were fresh black paint all around and a multi-layer metal flake red for the fenders and tank, finished with a one-off Triumph logo from pinstriping master Taka-Hira.
