Candy ass, no-blocking bitches!  -Tony D'Amato , Any Given Sunday.

   Evey now and then, this cool bike pops-up in my daily internet wild chase of cool bikes. From some sort of Blog, Instagram post or god-knows what obscure Tumblr. And every time I stop and look at it and how well-proportioned it is. No BS, just a cool little mean machine.
     Signs that I should post it up.

     “I had two wheels, a frame and an engine—and little idea where to start. (...) There were no hardtails available for the oil-in-frame models so I couldn’t get the basic rolling chassis going. Then Peter (Triumph specialist) found a complete 1969 Bonneville, minus its engine.”

        “Once the parts were in my hands, things started to get moving, Tiago of OneOne Customs taught me how to weld, and I got cracking on the seat, chain tensioner and oil tank mounts.”

In the meantime, he built another cool racer, covered by ''Return of the Cafe Racers'' here.
Thank you very much for the photos Justin !

And since I'm a fan of the build-up photos, here are some :
