Triumph Bonneville ‘Hold On, Go Fast’ by Down & Out

Residing on the outskirts of Sheffield in England is what’s widely considered to be one of Europe’s best bike building shops, Down & Out Cafe Racers. A bold claim indeed. Though when you consider founder Shaun Walker’s 15 years of bike building experience the dots sort of connect themselves. Especially upon further inspection of their newest project: a post-war-inspired Triumph Bobber.

Officially named “Hold On, Go Fast” this minimal yet powerful 1200cc water-cooled Bonneville first had its exhaust shortened by about five inches, followed by the removal of its air box which was later replaced by a pair of race pod filters. The side panels were also removed as to show off the Bobber’s rear suspension in style and D&O had their friends over at Core Seating put together a diamond-stitch black leather seat for good measure. Additionally, the new Bobber now hosts a longer rear mudguard, a Bates tail light, clip on bars, a Motogadget Chrono Classic speedo, a set of one-off mounts to carry two bottles of nitrous oxide, and a mean-looking 170 slick race tire in the rear. Not bad for a project completed in only 3 weeks time. [H/T: The Bike Shed]
