Bobber is Born by Jack Lilley

I do enjoy a build thread, it’s always great seeing a finished bike, but it’s far more interesting seeing how the bike was built – You may of seen the Jack Lilley Bobber before, but here are a few pics on how a Triumph Bonneville was transformed into a rather kick arse Bobber.

The guys at Jack Lilley wanted to create something a little different. and they succeeded. They started their project by obtaining a 2005 Bonneville with just 500 miles on the clock. The donor Bonne was stripped down and re-imagined around a frame commissioned from Fenland Choppers. To keep as much of the donor Bonne as possible, the original hubs were kept and re-laced to 16” inch Harley rims. The original Discs & callipers were also re used. Triumph Speedmaster bars replaced the stock Bonneville items, using Triumph OEM parts meant the original switchgear could also be retained.

Other features include; A “dummy” oil tank was fabricated to house all the electrics. DNA forks. Distressed brown leather seat. White wall tyres. Custom made exhaust system. New fuel tank & rear guard. Repainted in Triumph Matt Khaki Green. K/N air filters

The bike is now for sale at £15999 ONO
