Bol D'or Triumph Triton Phoenix 08 August 14
Dave Young of Bol D'or Motorcycles in Pulborough West Sussex UK has spent two years creating a one-off custom Triton, built with 95% of the parts as new from four different bikes.
The heart of the bike is the engine from a late model Meridian 750 Bonneville with the left-hand shift. It has been extensively gone through and even custom fitted with an electric foot, as well as the traditional kick start. It sits off to one side too allow for the alignment with the new swing arm and improve the balance of the bike with the extra weight of the starter motor.
The engine sits in a modified and widened Norton Manx frame to which a Triumph 1050 Speed Triple swing arm has been fitted, and the front end of the bike is also from the same model speed triple both ends complete with the donor bike's Brembo braking system.
The tank is a custom made aluminium one fabricated in Scotland UK and the seat and tail section is from a Ducati 916, and it is the two seat biposta version. The exhaust and digital instruments are from Danmoto and everything is put together using parts fabricated by Dave.
The paint scheme reflects the bikes international heritage and the Phoenix moniker describes the bike's resurrection.
