This is the world exclusive first photo shoot for what could be the most stunning custom motorcycle of the year – Roger Allmond’s Triumph Rocket III.

Commissioned by Bennetts Insurance, the unnamed machine retains only the standard engine and part of the shaft drive – the rest has been designed and created by Roger.

Working alone throughout the project, the bike has taken six months to transform from a donor bike supplied by Triumph into this.

The aluminium frame, wheel centres and unique tubular front suspension/steering setup is all Roger’s creation – the only outside sourced parts were the carbon fibre wheel rims made by Dymag to Roger’s specification.

The motorcycle is to be used as a centre-piece in Bennett’s Coventry call centre, but will also make appearances at various events in the next few months.
