Man, your bike looks good. With just a few tasteful touches as well.


It's testament to how much Triumph got it right first time with the original look of the Bobber.


Less is more!

Thanks Guffer much appreciated!

Other than a different rear fender, a side mounted plate and maybe a few other subtle changes it’ll probably be staying as it is. I was in two minds about all the black covers/cases to begin with but I think it all works.

Triumph sure did a good job, I had a 900 (or 863ish whatever it is!) Speedmaster a few years ago, I loved that bike... the Bobber is literally night and day in comparison though

That's exactly what I've done with mine. After the hassles I had with over-modifying some of my older bikes (they often ended up looking like a tart's boudoirs, running like crap and being nightmares to sell on), I've kept it fairly subtle with subsequent bikes. The fact I was an early Bobber adopter and Triumph still had all the things on its accessory list I wanted (short rear mudguard, side plate, US spec V+H's and a small mirror) meant I was finished modding and satisfied within a month of ownership.


I really can't think of anything else I'd want to do to it other than ride the thing (although those white wall tyres do look ruddy tempting!).
