OK, lads I can't take any plaudits for the build, I only gave up money for it! The bike is a one-off build, custom crome moly tig welded frame with KX500 forks, Triumph bonnie motor with Mikuni pumper carbs, it has a triumph swing arm modified for the Showa single shock, handbuilt 5+gal aluminum tank and side panels, two sets of wheels street/off road. It weighs 382 lbs in dirt set up with no gas. Oh and it goes like stink

No pictures, but the luggage rack I've got on mine will carry a HUGE travel bag. I rode my S3 all the way to North Carolina in relative comfort (12 hours, one way). You will probably want an aftermarket seat though. I've got a Sargent on mine; I couldn't have made it on the crappy stock seat.

Thanks for the info on that beautiful bike

I'm no Trumpet expert .... but is that a modern bonneville motor (Hinkley) or earlier?


Someone should send some pictures off to Triumph Then I could follow the pictures up with a PO

Triumph Rocket III

I met the owner of this bike while riding through Texas last year.


Triumph Rocket III


The trailer he was pulling

The owner didn't have much good to say about his bike. He complained about the transmission that failed at 44,000 miles, and the short life of his rear tires. I looked at all the crap he had welded on, and the trailer he was pulling, and I asked him, "Why didn't you just buy a pick-up?"
