The Italian Job

Posted on: May 21 2017

Our client Val came to us with a T100 Bonneville that was in great condition but very 'stock standard' in its aesthetic. Coming from a big Italian family, and with a background in high end hospitality and fitness, Val wanted the bike to better reflect his lively personality and flair for style. As the bike was only a year old, no restoration or modernisation was required, making this a fun project for cosmetic enhancements and performance work.

A more streamlined cockpit, custom tank colour and a custom seat gave the bike a more polished European style, whilst Ohlins shocks and engine work took the bike from a comfortable commuter to a fun and pacey ride.

The results speak for themselves - a bike that is classy and sleek, with more Italian flair than British awkwardness.
