Hi all, thought I'd share some pictures of some changes I've made to my bike over winter. New leather seat with green piping to match the tank is a tribute to my late mother. I've also added a rack, a 'period' plate, slash cut exhausts and some blingy bits from Triumph. Still plenty of mods planned. Cheers.

How you getting on with the plate... any tugs as yet? I really want to go for the same style of plate but I’m concerned it will act like a magnet for the law!

Been spannering in the garage so not taken her out yet so not sure whether plate will attract unwanted attention.
I can’t see the plate by itself attracting too much attention when to the uninformed eye the bobber does look like an old bike, although being a 66 reg is a bit of a give away when you’re only suppose to have them on pre 1976 machines :wink2:

But it’s great to see another 66plate bobber was yours a former Triumph press bike or were you just quick off the mark?

I’ve been looking at some old school private plates for sale for that very reason. But try as I might I keep looking at the reg MC18 BOB as it ticks my initials box, nods at the year and gives a cheeky wink to the bike also. It’s just a shame the DVLA want £1000 for it overwise my bike would be wearing it already! :D

Sounds perfect, I guess it all depends on how long you’re going to keep the Bobber? >:)

The bike was used for Triumph's Bobber launch in Spain.
