The 2008 EFI Triumph Bonneville "Soul Train" is the work of the crew at Ton Up Garage in Portugal, who were approached by a French customer looking for a bike with a similar style to one of their previous builds, the Urban Pearl.
The build started by replacing the stock seat with a Ton-up Garage twin saddle finished in cross stitched brown leather. The stock lighting was replaced by a small black and copper headlight with a yellow lens, small black indicators and a matching black LED tail light. The stock instruments were swapped with a single, small speedo and a set of LSL black bars with gum grips was bolted to the stock risers.
The rear wheel was swapped for a 16" and both rims wrapped in vintage style rubber and the front and rear suspension upgraded using Ohlins shocks and progressive springs. The engine and electrics remain stock at the owners request but "stock" is a word that won't ever be used when referring to this Bonneville again. "The bike travelled from Portugal to Biarritz and was delivered to the customer at the Wheels and Waves show." I'm sure he couldn't have been any happier with the result.
