Bobber Build-Off

THE INSPIRATION

The brilliant team at Laguna Maidstone hopped back to the post-war era to begin creating a wonderfully vintage aesthetic for their custom Bobber entry. Their innovative modern classic concept is tailored to facilitate long distance riding and the many adventurous miles ahead, with recognisable nods to the 1949 Trophy TR5 and the 1950 Thunderbird. 

design

The team began by working with T & S Engineering's team of talented fabricators to drastically change the look and functionality of our custom Bobber's tank. The bespoke fabrication meant that the tank has approximately doubled its original capacity, allowing for many more exciting miles and a more comfortable riding position. The team enhanced the Bobber's tank with a Trophy TR5 inspired chrome renovation.

key features

The beautifully hand-crafted custom high-level twin pipes provide a nod to the iconic Trophy TR5 and have been paired with sleek-looking complimentary Triumph 1960 genuine chrome silencers. Further capturing the Bobber's classic profile, they've switched out the original 16" rear wheel rim for an 18" alternative - fitting Michelin Anakee tyres to the front and rear. They opted to 'un-bob' their Bobber by fabricating a longer, bare aluminium mud-guard.
