It may not be to everyone's taste but you can't deny that this 'bobbed' Triumph Bonneville is certainly different.

Home built by 'bobber Dave' in Detroit, USA and discovered on the website of American based aftermarket spares specialist Bella Course, the modified Hinckley Bonnie has had several inches of the rear sub frame removed and a thin custom saddle fitted to achieve the bobber style.

To complete the look a side mounted number plate, ace bars and vintage red grips have also been added.

Short travel 11" Harley shocks replace the stock Bonnie units but they're used to slam the rear rather than improve suspension.

The pick of the mods has to be the vinyl seat cover that's made from full gloss metal-flake bar stool material. Lush.
