Triumph T120 Bonneville by D&O Cafe Racers

Dec 2, 2016

As much as we love to drool over motorcycles on a daily basis around here, we have to admit when English bike builder Down & Out Cafe Racers releases a new project, a warm tingly feeling overcomes us. Maybe it’s because deep down we’d have a secret love affair with cafe racers. Or maybe it’s because frontman Shaun Walker does such a bang-up job with each and every project. Regardless his latest project, this T120 Bonneville, immediately caught our attention.

Since the new T120 from Triumph hosts their High Torque motor little time – or need – was spent trying to enhance the power here. Instead, D&O focused on tightening up some subpar stock features on the bike. For instance, the new build now features Motogradget’s M-unit system, and Motone push button switches for starters. It also hosts headlight brackets, mudguards, and mounts; all stainless steel and all from D&O themselves. Shaun also decided to add a wide 17-inch wheel to the front and a set of YSS rear shocks for good measure as well. All told, it’s a handsome upgrade to the already solid Triumph name, ready to handle any on and off-road obstacles that may present themselves. Ride on. [H/T: TheBikeShed]
