Biltwell's New Triumph Bonneville Looks Like a Million Bucks [Photo Bucket]
text size: A- A+
Building machines for both dirt and tarmac, the Biltwell philosophy is that rims and tires set the style, so when thinking to shoe black anodized Excel rims with Pirelli Scorpion, things went a bit into scrambler-land, given the dual-purpose nature of the A/Ts.
Hacking and sawing into the Bonnie rid the 2008 machine of almost 50 pounds (22.6 kg) so things went more than serious. Side covers, wheels, instruments, airbox and exhaust, they all went down. Biltwell bars and riser came in place and a custom J-Tech billet alloy master cylinder and levers were commissioned to Joker Machine, and everything got a stealthy black paint.
British Customs prototyped a seat upon one of Harold's designs, with a chocolate leather top and double diamond stitching was installed and Burly/Progressive12.5-inch Model 444 dual shocks went in place to compensate for the taller rear tire.
The wiring was done all over again as Biltwell's McGoo unfortunately decided to get rid of the initial one. Enduro-style pegs were installed and the new, short and sporty exhaust completed the build.
The EX-T100 is the same and different at the same time, a majestic combination of old and new, classic and modern, finished to perfection and boasting both British heritage and American custom DNA. Via ChopCult.

Actually, the seat is an R&D prototype of a Biltwell seat on the drawing board. Finished product I'll sport black vinyl cover like all other Biltwell seats. This set is custom covered in chocolate leather and butterscotch suede to mimic the eventual foam shape and stitching pattern of my design for the Biltwell seat.
