Triumph Bonneville 650 engine on the modified featherbed frame - Yeah ? Where did that Bodywork and fairing all come from, i556 Road speed, looks like bespoke mods for the frame - dunno . Front & Rear suspension mods too. Ventilated high tech discs - the whole bike has been re-worked.

Very clean - you been polishing like mad - haven't you. Looks quite nice, inspite of the mellow :wink:

Nah, not a mod. at all.
If you look at the rear end you will see that it is a fuel-injected 955 cc triple.
Will do 100 mph in 3rd (of 6). 0-60 well under 4 secs, standing 1/4 comes in at 11 secs and standing km at a blink over 20 secs.
I do wish that you hadn't mentioned plods and ditches :lol:

Very very Quick.

Two of the pots are the same cube as a Bonnee', sorry about the mods insult - I dunno stuff these days

I see now the triple exhaust manifold arranged with that curved pipe joint to the silencer, you got baffles in that silencer ? Not quite the RR v12 Merlin in the spitfire, but we can hear you coming alright :)

I have deleted the offending words - delete yours, and then the comment does not exist.

Power and grace, Enjoy
