2008 TRIUMPH SPEED TRIPLE 1050 triple green

This bike is the story of a reconstruction …
Indeed, in APRIL 2019, I thought I had made my most beautiful bike, and this title, I was invited to exhibit it at BIKE SHED LONDON …
But as a good idiot, I couldn’t help going with a cool windy Saturday, and at eine 500 after I left, braking a little on a cold road and tires that was them too, and the sickle ended at the hospital with a triple fracture and a crumbled motorcycle …
No ke Shed London, but in early June, it was out of the question for me to be without a motorcycle to ride with my friends …
Except that the problem was that the convalescence announced with my right arm in the plaster did not allow me to repair my motorcycle …
I waited until the last moment to cut my plaster with my tools while I only had nine days before the dead line !!
Impossible to rebuild the carbon fairing, or find a tank in good condition to strip it, brush it and varnish it, that’s why I decided to repair and paint them, and as I had a pot of glitter green, with which I had decorated the surf floor that I had shaped for my daughter, I also used it for my motorcycle …
To go into details, everything is homemade, carbon parts, aluminum, paint, even bubbles, made from a sheet of plexiglass heated and then formed, etc etc …
This bike rides every day, despite the handlebars placed very low and an aluminum saddle, it remains comfortable below 200km / day …
