Peterborough Triumph decided to base the design of their Bobber on an aircraft colour scheme because of the passion that the Webbs' team have for historic aircraft.
They considered a number of different aircraft for the inspiration, but decided that it needed to meet a specific criteria. One, it must be a British icon, and two, Peterborough Triumph has always been affiliated with East Anglia, particularly Lincolnshire, 'The Bomber County', so basing it on a bomber would be a perfect idea.

Peterborough Triumph picked a colour scheme from a 1960s target tug, a Mosquito with the destination of TT.35. It is a historic aircraft colour scheme, with a hazardous waste/zombie apocalypse vibe, to appeal to a young and contemporary audience.
The Peterborough Triumph team has included quarter painted wheels, a high level custom-made exhaust system and infill panels to enclose the rear of the bike. These special features and accessories complement their 1960s aircraft theme.
