Hailing from the Gold Coast of Australia, Tom over at Purpose Built Moto has been making a name for himself in the custom motorcycle scene. Teaming up Night Craft Bobbers, the two set out to create a lighter more nibble dirt rippin T100 Bonneville. The result is this Triumph Bonneville Scrambler ready to start ripping up the dirt on the Gold Coast of Australia.
Starting off with a 2007 Triumph T100 Bonneville, both Purpose Built Moto and Night Craft Bobbers were entering new territory. Purpose Built had never worked on a Triumph before and Night Craft was new to the whole scrambler style. Tom of Purpose Built Moto knew he wanted to go with a lighter and more MX styling riding position. Up front, a set of custom bar risers which hold the Pro Taper Tracker bars were used. A new thicker seat to help raise the rider position to a more MX position was used.
Tom added a few cool Purpose Built Moto parts to the bike as well. Their prototype LED headlight which looks awesome was installed. We might have to try one of these on our current Scrambler built. Additionally, an all new custom exhaust was hand built which Tom says he will be offering up for the Triumphs soon. The cool dual stainless mufflers with their up swept design looks awesome on both sides. The Bonneville also got some new rubber from Heidenau Tires to this bike eat up the dirt while still being comfortable on the pavement.
Rounding out the build, Tom knew he wanted to keep the classic Triumph design and paint details but with his own touch. The stock tank was used and paint with a Matte Black / Glass Black finish and topped off with some cool gold pin-striping. Last but not least, the Triumph badges on the tank were removed and hand painted with the gold to match the other detailing.
This Triumph Bonneville Scrambler is the perfect result of Tom’s vision. Not only is it ready to rip up the dirt on the Gold Coast of Australia but in Tom’s own words “You could comfortably ride in a Tuxedo” on it. This bike just might have to be part of the Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride for 2017.
