Triumph dealerships from around the UK are putting their customised Bobbers to the vote in the famous manufacturer’s inaugural Bobber Build Off challenge.
Using a combination of Triumph accessories and their own engineering skills, the 13 participating dealerships have designed and personalised a standard Bonneville to create a custom bobber.
Each of the dealership’s creations were recently displayed at The Bike Shed Show in London, alongside the first of Triumph’s Factory Custom Limited Editions, Thruxton TFC and Rocket 3 TFC and its custom Speed Twin, designed by the Bike Shed’s Anthony ‘Dutch’ van Someren.
Anyone can now vote on-line on Triumph’s website, with voting closing at 10am on Thursday 29th August. Fans will be taken through to the Triumph UK Facebook album page, where they can like their favourite Bobbers, each like counts as a vote. The three finalists will then go into a head-to-head showdown judged by a celebrity panel at the end of July.
“Since its launch, the Bonneville Bobber has proven to be the most popular Triumph motorcycle for personalising,” commented Rick Cawley, Regional Director Europe, Sales & Marketing. “We launched the competition to not only showcase the customisation and engineering skills of the Triumph dealer network, but to also demonstrate that choosing genuine Triumph accessories is the ideal way to personalise your ride.”
The 13 finalists are Jack Lilley Ashford, A1 York, Bevans of Cardiff, JS Gedge, Bulldog, Glasgow, Pure Triumph Wellingborough, Triumph World Chesterfield, Triumph East London, Phillip McCallen, Peterborough Triumph, Laguna Ashford and Laguna Maidstone.
