Triumph Scrambler Neverland Is Awesome Beyond Words

This Scrambler could easily be one of the contenders for the “best custom Triumph we saw this year” title, and run shoulder-to-shoulder with the two bespoke Triumphs we shot a EICMA 2014 in Milan earlier this fall. Unfortunately, it was impossible to decipher the writing on the airbox cover, so we’re asking our readers to help us identify this machine and give proper credit to its creator(s).

Obviously, the first thing which struck us is the peanut tank. The paint job on it reads Triumph Motors, but it reeks of Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight styling. It’s impossible to tell if the fuel tank is an actual MoCo unit or a custom job made in its likeness, but frankly, it doesn’t matter either way. This is one thing which is extremely rare in the Hinckley world, and seeing it so flawlessly integrated with a Scrambler is truly glorious.Steampunk, retro, post-apocalyptic? All in one?
Probably one of the hardest tasks of the day would be having us adding a label to this bike’s styling. Honestly, we’d rather create a new class of its own for the Neverland Scrambler, as it displays such a successful mixture of elements belonging to multiple custom styles. This makes it even harder to find a “best segment” for it, and in this particular case, this might be the key feature for the bike.

The 48er tank has a retro fuel gauge which uses the old-school method. A transparent hose is mounted outside the tank and uses the communicating vessels principle for displaying how much fuel is left in the tank.

The two horizontal exhausts have killer WWI machinegun heat shield design and their brushed, old finish is also great. It’s nice to see that the airbox is still in place, and the creator of this bike did not choose the ever-present open mesh filters. The seat pan went away and replaced by a springer solo seat, which should be quite comfy even on rough roads.

What we believed to be clip-ons are in fact low-slung bars which mimic the board tracker ones and give a racey riding position in conjunction with the relocated rearsets. The yellow Bates-like headlight was mounted lowed on the right fork leg, an idea which is very cool and which we enjoyed in the Beaupere bobber, too. Finally, the martial attire is enhanced by the solid bashplate, knobbies and round toolbox mounted where the headlight was initially.

Now, once more, we are asking those who know where did this bike come from to share their wisdom with us so we can make the creators of the Neverland Scrambler famous in the galaxy.
