Bobber Build Off Bike - Spotted In The Wild! With Pics...

Hi all,

I headed over to the Custom Cafe today in Bexhill. I was sat drinking my coffee when suddenly I heard what I thought was my own bike start up. After briskly walking, (a little panicked thinking mine was being pinched) to where I’d parked it, I see that it was after all another Bobber... all be it one that was a little bit special.

It proved to be one of the bikes built for the Bobber Build Off competition, where many of the U.K. Triumph dealerships took a standard Bobber and went to town customising them, with the final results being exhibited at The BikeShed Show this year.

It seems my seeing 5 other Bobbers at a bike meet the day before wasn’t enough, now I bump into this weapon!

The chap that owned it was named Trevor. A lovely guy who tells me that he and his local Triumph dealership, (I forget which one) worked on producing this bike together. He had only just picked the bike up yesterday and it only had 11 miles on the clock!

He said there’s still some work to be done and that it was in the end a little rushed for the show. He intends to install lower springs so that the seat sits lower. He’s also going to find a means of covering the mono shock. But I have to say that the quality of the fit and finish was very impressive.

I told the owner of the bike Trevor all about the Bobber Forum, and about how great its members are etc. He wasn’t aware of the club but said he would sign up and come to say high.

Well, hopefully he does but in the mean time here’s some pics for you all...

I saw pix for this incarnation on the Build-Off gallery last week. One of my faves, and sure it does look to have been a hastily constructed project but I so like the direction they're going with this, especially the with extended vintage style guards. Should look good once it's sorted. If it weren't for the disc brakes, at a quick glance could easily pass as a faux resto' for the not so ofay bikers,
