69 Triumph Bonneville – New Look

When this 1969 Triumph Bonneville arrived in the Whiplash Customs shop, it presented an opportunity to give her a facelift and new life to rival her popularity back in the radical 60s and 70s.  She went quickly from Drab to Rad with a new full custom exhaust, facelift fabrication, new forward controls, tons of miscellanous metalwork and a mind blowing paint job of Tangerine Blood Orange Candy over silver metalflake.

She sports a stock Triumph motor with a single carb, a 2″ under springer front end and wheels to move her with a 21″ front and Triumph 16″ back.

All tied up with the award for Best Bike at the 2014 Torquemaster Auto Extravaganza, this little beauty turns heads, evokes memories and leaves the looker longing for one of their own.  But she is a unique, one of a kind entity, diligently re-created by Al at Whiplash – mega hours of work and dedication.  Her owner is one lucky dude to have this beauty gracing his garage!
