    1. Hey, those are LSL rearsets, aka "footpegs".

  2. Sick bike, but if you want to do any real scrambling with those knobby tires, that exhaust is seriously going to limit the ground clearance. This bike with the high exhaust would make much more sense. Otherwise a totally badass bike.

  3. My personal opinion is that knobbies look great on the bike. Regardless of ground clearance issues with the exhaust, I doubt they'd be too much fun around town. Jim told me that his normal day to day tires are Continental Trail Attacks.

  4. Nice looking bike but those tyres would be no good on tarmac and as for off road the first rock you go over would rip them exhaust silencers off.I think this bike has been built for show and not go.

    1. Hey Beno, I just spoke with the owner for you. He says, "The color was matched to the progressive 970 shocks. It doesn't match in all light but it does in most. As for the blend, I can't really say as it was mixed just that once to match and really don't think the painter keep track." Hope that helps!

    1. Pretty sure that's a stock Triumph seat. Looks like the ones off the new Bonnies.

  11. Bullitt, thanks for posting my bike, as you seen I was going to sell, but thought about it and rather keep it. I get a lot of good and bad comments on it. But it is mine and built to fit me which it does so well. Since you posted it here, it found its way on Bike Exif, and about 4 other blogs with links back to you. It also found its way to Triumph North America's Facebook page and more repost then I can count on Facebook and twitter. Again thank so much for posting it and adding to your header rotating banner.

    1. Hey Lâm,
      As for the bars in the picture they were Emgo or JMF bars (basicly the same) but Jim removed them as the chrome started to peel. He now runs TC Bros. bars, still drag bars with 2 inch pull back. Look just the same:

      Hope that helps!
