View Full Version : New project bike-ideas?

11-20-2009, 10:54 PM
Looks like I will be starting a new Lowbrowcustoms project bike, an 06 Triumph T-100 which I need to get back on the road over this winter as I heal up too. I'm excited to start a new project and a newer bike at that! For sure there will be a new front end wether its a stocker, springer, etc since I tweaked the hell outta the stock front end.

I'm looking for input, what ideas ya guys have? What kind of tech would you like to see out of it? I have some ideas of my own but I'm interested to see what else people throw my way. Post pics, input, ideas, curses, lets see what ya have! Cheers, Kyle

An afterthought, has anyone ever seen anything done other than a stock modern Truimph front end? I'd def like to see a pic if so!

I'm thinking the one on the bottom, even though thats a much earlier bike. A flat track modern trump would be killer. And get well soon then work on the bike.

Oops, sorry for the old bike pic, but I've seen a couple Hinckleys set up as street trackers and they look awesome. Who's the French company that sells super expensive tanks and bikes? Couldn't recall the name but they have some seriously sweet stuff.

Mecatwin does alot of rad shit with the new stuff.

Very cool stuff man thanks I hadn't come across them yet. I dig the racer bike they put together and the scrambler

1) Build something like this.....

2) bring it on over to NY...

3) come racing and get dirty.

4) Be the envy of all that don't have the stones to go sideways!

You've already got crashing out of the way....live the dream!!!!!!
