Triumph and Barbour International unveil unique custom Bonneville
BIT1: The Street Tracker
The Street Tracker is a stripped down flat-track Bonneville with a pure and raw character. With a classic stance and aggressive, masculine lines framing the classic Triumph parallel twin the BIT1 is a fitting celebration of the newly-unveiled partnership. A bespoke build by the in-house Triumph team the bike draws from performance heritage wrapped around new custom scene styles. Details abound including extensive frame modification, removing all of the rear passenger metal work, pillion pegs, subframe and battery box. A bespoke Redmax Speedshop seat was modified to provide the authentic flat-track tail. Suspension duties are handled by custom build K-Tech Razor rear shocks and the complete replacement of the Bonneville front with something more fitting from its Street Triple R stablemate. Slash cut pipes and a conversion to carbs, swapping out the stock EFI system for Keihin 36mm smooth-bores are yet further examples of the team’s desire to produce a true one-off to amplify the unique partnership.
The clothing collaboration
The first clothing collaboration between these two global icons is authentic, modern and retro cool. It combines the rich heritage of both brands in sharp, masculine, aspirational styles. The iconic Barbour International jacket is customised exclusively for the collaboration for the motorcyclist purist alongside cut off denim jackets, shirts, chunky knitwear and strong tee designs. Highlights of the Triumph riding collection include a riding jacket that combines all of Triumph’s technical know-how with Barbour textiles and a collaborative classic style. Featuring CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows, authentic four pocket detailing and a signature International Jacket belted waist this is classic style for the contemporary rider. Available in both men’s and ladies fit the Triumph Barbour Riding Jacket will be available in Triumph dealerships from August 2015 and the range of Barbour Triumph casual and classic clothing will be available in Barbour International retail outlets from August.
The collection will be available in Triumph dealerships, Barbour stores and selected stockists worldwide from August 2015. The new BIT1 Street Tracker is available to view at The Bike Shed, London, this weekend (23-24th May 2015)
