Bunker Customs Triumph 2013 Bonneville

tumblr_n3btr7lBJg1qh1o9po7_1280From Turkey is this sweet looking 2013 Triumph Bonneville T100, which has been created by Mert and Can Uzer of Bunker Customs who work from a converted coffee-house, now garage-workshop near Istanbul. As you can see its a Triumph Twin that would look good in monochrome as it does in colour, personally I prefer a bit of colour on my bike as black…is well…black! – That aside the Bunker guys have done a fine job on this bike, I think you will agree….tumblr_n3btr7lBJg1qh1o9po3_1280

“T100 was already very pretty looking bike when its owner Omur Uluask brought her to our garage. We tried to do our best mainly to carry visual balance as far as we can. After the drawing process we started our work.

We threw out the rear fender, stop and signal assembly. Tail length was our main concern . It originally had straight end pipes with plastic caps hidden underneath the seat. We’ve shortened tail end and seat approximately %20 and ended it with a loop. Then we cutoff small piece of the loop to make the seat bolts accessible.

We’ve fitted progressive rear shocks to improve handling which are 2-3 cm higher then stock to give the bike a bit more aggressive stance. After balancing the tail length and posture we’ve made a new shorter seat plate and reshaped the foam with a higher back bump. We’ve covered it with brown handmade real leather. We’ve also fitted LUIMOTO gold gel under the cover.

We’ve fitted handmade aluminium rear and front fender to accompany new rear balance. We’ve made a handmade rear stoplight made in lathe. Design inspiration coming from engine fins. We tried to carry that look to the tail light. We’ve relocated front and rear turn signals.

We’ve fitted an OEM yellow beam to get more characteristic and vintage look. We also made and aggressive looking guard to the headlight rim. We’ve fitted Bitwell low rise handle bar to accompany new riding posture. And covered the grips with the same brown leather.

We’ve fitted K&N air filters and British Customs Predator silencers. Then we wired Power commander to squeeze out more power. After dyne testing and new mapping we’ve manage to get 68,7 hp 71 torque. We’ve drilled out side panel referencing to open air filter and placed aluminium mesh under it. Fitted a handmade front engine guard. Also fitted steering damper LSL sliders.”
