While this bike borders on being a chopper, it’s close enough to a bobber for me! Triumph’s engines always look great, and fit this build nicely. Even the babyshit green paint works, wonder of wonders! Vintage car tires make for a very aggressive look, not sure how bad they affect the handling, but it has to be significant when leaned into turns! Bah, this is more of a show bike than anything else, anyways.
Made by Scott Toepfer’s friend Curtis, this build has a bit of a back story that’s a bit, well, strange. reading the BikeEXIF article on it, you get the impression that Curtis took a grinder to the bike, and this was the happy result. There’s a little more to it than that, with a custom seat, some welding and painting of the rear frame, custom throttle, nicely hidden electrics, and such. yes, she has a very rough and ready demeanor, but there’s a lot more going on here than the story says!
