Vilner Bulldog, a Custom Approach to the Triumph Speed Triple [Video] [Photo Gallery]
text size: A- A+
Now, the Vilner guys are specialized in car interiors, so modding a Triumph Speed Triple was really an interesting project. When it comes to cutting and bringing together, Vilner's expertise is into leather and other exotic materials, trimming and tailoring rather than metal work.
So the modifications for the Triumph Speed Triple were on the aesthetic side, with the resulting bike dubbed the “Bulldog” looking more like a piece of art than a street bike ready to race the highway.
Mirrors went retro and have been mounted underneath the handlebars, and the dual headlight has been replaced with a single, larger one, with a stylish fairing around it, mocking a miniature windshield.
The exhausts went matte black and the custom Oz rims got a gold finish. Brown leather now covers the side panels and the front end of the tank, in perfect harmony with the lines of the bike and the sculpted seat. The lighter tread stitching makes a nifty contract with the mellow yet mean color of the Vilner Bulldog an screams its exclusive character.
No word on pricing for such a project as it's yet unclear if Vilner wishes to enter bike customization. However, we strongly believe they should!
