Hello folks!
New here and new to Triumphs in general. I have a 2018 Bobber Black and have gotten the itch to do some customizations. I already replaced the stock mirrors with bar end ones and would love to clean up the taillight, blinker, license plate all in one that the bike comes with. I have been looking and seen the LED strip that goes along the back bottom of the seat. Not sure I dig the look....

I rode Harleys for 10 years and the aftermarket parts for them are everywhere. I was hoping for some ideas and some sites you folks may use as your go-to custom parts shopping sites.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

Hey harley_convert, Welcome!

The other guys already put up most of the best ones, but, depending on where you are, there is also British Customs and of course Ebay and Amazon. I've also found more and more of the smaller custom build places are getting geared up as well.

Canadian maybe? Fortnine, Twisted Throttle..

Not quit as spoiled for choices as for a Harley but there are some.

Can't wait to see what you end up doing..

What are your long term plans with the rear fender? No fender? Short? Stock? Will you have saddle bags? These considerations will drive your decisions.

I wanted to keep the stock fender but knew I wasn’t going to do saddle bags. This meant I could relocate the signals further forward without fear that bags would obscure the dual lights. So I went with the NRC tail tidy and X-Arc dual function lights. If I do ever add bags, then I’ll need to move my lights back to the license plate using Outpost Cycles plate.

British Customs tail light for a street twin with some minor cutting to make it fit. Otherwise plug and play.

Rizoma dual function signals mounted to airbox bolts.
If you can, I would like to see close ups of these tail light mods.
thats the look I want....nice!

I was thinking stock fender, no bags. I really like what you did with the tail tidy and those lights are perfect. I 'almost' bought the under the seat LED strip but I just didnt love the look. Long term I want to do something with the pipes and wrap them in a copper\bronze wrap.

I will upload a pic when I get my covers on and bar ends finished

Thanks. It’s loud, but not super loud. I kept the cat on for environmental reasons, but adding the air filters recently helped make it just right.
