Triumph Bonneville Soul Train
While the idea of owning a heavily customised motorcycle, with hundreds of hours devoted to its fabrication and unspeakable amounts of cash spent buying the best performance parts money can buy sounds like the kind of thing we’d all love, the reality is that most of us can’t afford it or don’t have the skills to build it. While many of the motorcycles I feature fall into that category I also love to see basic builds that manage to impress with only a fraction of the build effort. This custom, late model Triumph Bonneville is the perfect example of how a little work by someone with a keen eye can really go a long way…
A brown and black colour scheme was selected for the bike and tastefully applied in the Ton-Up paintshop. The wheel hubs, engine cases and fenders were finished in metallic brown. The rims were powder coated black to match the frame as were the stock mufflers and remaining silver engine components. The stock tank was then de-badged and treated to a custom Ton-Up paint job with gold pin striping and subtle Ton-Up Garage branding.
