1947 Triumph Speed Bobber


Posted on December 29, 2009 by Scott in Uncategorized. 5 comments


This is the latest creation from a custom shop in Japan called Deluxie Customs. They are one of the few Japanese shops that don’t use the Yamaha SR400 for their bike projects. They usually use Triumphs and Harley’s for their builds, like this spectacular 1947 Triumph ‘Speed Bobber’. It has a 1947 vintage frame and 650 engine, with a 750 front end, and the rear wheel has a 16 inch Harley rim on it. Mooneyes has helped with the overall vintage bobber look by supplying the seat, rear dish pistons and many other parts. To see more from the guys at Deluxie visit their custom gallery

Just a reminder to check out BikeEXIF as I’m doing some guest writing over there while they are on holidays.

    No, it’s a real size motorcycle.

    the rear wheel, is it a wheel cover that’s attached to the wheel or is it a solid wheel? tx, rob

    Cool. I have a 1947 Triumph chopper. It was a bobber but I hate the short fender so I replaced it with a full fender and tail light assembly. Now my back doesn't get sprayed with road grime and my own oil. LOL!
