Triumph Café Racer


Posted on April 25th, by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

C-51 Customs are located in Novato in the San Francisco Bay Area. Jason Steed from C-51 has just finished building this beautiful 1977 Triumph 750 T140. The stunning 5 gallon tank was made by The Tank Shop out of Scotland and took 8 months to receive but “was well worth the wait”. Jason told us “The bike was a total tear down and rebuild. The motor is a 750 with a 5 speed, .40 over pistons and everything else on the motor was upgraded. Stock amal carbs with velocity stacks. I switched the heads over to the slip over 650 style pipes with pressed in adapters on the exhaust ports. The frame, hubs and misc brackets were all powder coated gloss black. The wheels are Excel high shouldered aluminium rim with Buchanan stainless spokes. I used a brembo rear slave master cylinder instead of the stock bulky one. Clubman handlebars with magura controls. The electrical system was switched out to Boyer Brandson. The seat was done locally by the Franzini Bros and is actually stock that I shortened to accommodate the fuel tank”. These great shots of this classic styled Café Racer were taken by the photographers at Vidola Productions. There’s also a video in production which I will post in the next week or so.
