Posted on November 29, 2010 by Andrew in Other. 45 comments

Aww yeah biatches – it’s time for the third round of Imaginary Garage, and this time it’s your turn. As you can see, our starting point is a new 2010 Triumph Bonneville. Sweet, huh? So what’s the hold-up? Let’s light up the blow torches and get medieval on it’s ass!

So how is this going to work? OK, there’s going to be two rounds of suggestions as to how we will modify the Bonnie and all submissions will be done via comments below. Round 1 will be the big stuff; tires, wheels, tank, seat, and exhaust etc. What we’re after is something like “I think we should make it into an X style of bike with Y style tires, Z type and colour of wheels etc.” In a way we’re your local shop and you’re briefing us to build this bike for you, so obviously “make a cafe racer with a cool tank” won’t do it. We’re looking for creative, original, clear ideas. No essays, please. We choose the winner, make the mods, and post the results. The winner gets a brand new Pipeburn King Kong tee worth $30.

Round 2 will be all about the tweaks; paint colours, adding or removing chrome, ride height, decals, handle bars and generally perfecting the look of the thing. Same deal as the first round; submissions via the comments section and be detailed. Again, we choose the best entry, make the mods, post the results and announce the winner. Prize for this round is your choice of any other tee in the Pipeburn shop.

You have 48 hours to get your ideas posted before we close round 1 so get them in ASAP. Leave a valid email address so we can contact the winners. I’ll update the article to let you all know where we are in the scheme of things.

And lastly, please remember that this is a bit of an experiment so please be patient. Now get to it!
