Smile triumph tiger cub bobber

hi, here are some pictures of my first attempt at building a custom motorcycle, my bike of choice is a 1958 triumph t20 tiger cub 200cc single, as i have never seen one done in bobber style, hope you enjoy!

before work started.... i think it was just a standard tiger cub that sumone had botched together to make it a trials, soo, none of the nuts and bolts matched up and each one was a different size and thread pitch, metric, imperial and everything in between

not sure what kind of speed she'll do, maybe 65-70mph, not really been built with speed in mind.

Cool Re: triumph tiger cub bobber

That is really cool, thanks for sharing that

I believe it was around 2001-2002 that David "Englishman" Gregory, if memory serves me right, from The Horse magazine built a custom Triumph 250 which was cool too.

I really like the idea you had to make a rigid for it and it looks great. Good job turning an old single into a badass custom bike !
