Bike Model: Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin
Award Won: Paint & Custom – Bonneville Build-Off 2020
Edinburgh Triumph began their build with the ambition to evoke the spirit of Triumph’s iconic race bikes of the 70s. Using a Speed Twin 1200, the design is mostly black with classic early Hinckley-inspired blue and white highlights, reminiscent of the paintwork made famous on the Daytona 1200.
A custom-fitted original Daytona fairing has been incorporated, with all other aspects stripped down as much as possible. A custom-made seat has been fitted to highlight the rear of the bike, while a minimalist 2-1 exhaust brings out the full Triumph sound.
Finally, the team added a custom-fit machined clip on the handlebars to deliver an authentic full race bike feel. The team at Edinburgh Triumph used the combined skills and ideas of Mike, Service Manager, Alan, Head Technician and Robert from the Sales Team. The Speed Racer is a stunning Speed Twin 1200 styled as an iconic race bike with the heart of original Hinckley.
