Dealer build off’s seem to be hot lately. Last week we’ve featured a custom Victory Octane as a result of a dealer build off and brands like Ducati and Indian also had their competition among dealers earlier this year. Now it’s time for Triumph to get their dealers building customized versions and they’ve launched “Project Street Twin”, a build off for Dutch and Belgian Triumph dealers.
The dealers are limited to use bolt on parts and the total price of the bike can’t exceed €15000,- in The Netherlands and €14000 in Belgium, including man hours. They’re not limited to official Triumph accessories. This is the submission of Motorcentrum Eibergen and it called “Vintage #54”. It’s clear that this classic Street Twin Cafe Racer was inspired on the big brother of the Street Twin, the Thruxton R.
They grabbed the front fork and the gas tank of the Thruxton R. Rear shocks are from YSS and the laced wheels are from the Bonneville T120. For some serious stopping power, radial Brembo’s of a Speed Triple were used. To give the bike a typical cafe racer look, the rear end is cleaned to fit a classic cafe racer seat. The area where the battery and air filter is also cleaned by removing the battery under the seat and placing an open air intake; together with the Zard exhaust system this results in a brutal sound. Finishing touch is the racing silver paintwork with a classic striping.
