Jesse Basset of The GasBox workshop was recently commissioned to work some custom magic on a client’s 1960 Triumph TR6 sprung bobber. While first tasked to create a classic Triumph look, once the engine and transmission has been put together, the client asked them to give it more of a ‘Vincent’ model.
The flowing original frame and swingarm have been reconditioned and coated in a classic black chassis paint, while the addition of a BSA girder setup replacing the Triumph’s telescopic forks nails the period look to perfection. After rebuilding the engine and gearbox, Jesse fabricated a large looking tank that stores both the fuel and the oil (Vincents have no visual oil tank, they store it in the frame). Other bits include a Vincent styled rear fender, a beautiful bobber styled single seat and vintage inverted bars both covered in rich brown leather, a sleek twin pipe exhaust, chrome filler caps, and classic lighting front and rear.
Finished in shiny black with polished chrome accents, this old-school bike is as authentic as those sophisticated British hand-built machines of the past. [via]
