Thornton Hundred Motorcycles has a very interesting video. It’s a little strange to see this brand equip their bikes with a touring setup. Again Triumph he Bonneville his bobber and go on a 3,000 mile road trip.
A long journey takes preparation, but the Thornton Hundred knows the platform. After all, last year they built the fastest Triumph Bonneville Bobber, took it to a drag race race, and took it to the Goodwood Festival of Speed hillclimb. They did it all before selling it for a hefty sum of around $50,000.
Thornton Hundred’s decision to go with a touring setup seems a bit far from what we’d expect from the company, but there are some pretty smart upgrades and well thought out build plans. The results at the end of the video say it all, but this build has a ton of luggage, luggage racks, tank upgrades and an exhaust that you wouldn’t expect for touring.
Custom work then begins by completely disassembling the bike and neatly installing all the wheels, belts, fork boots and guards that were planned from the beginning of the assembly process. Thornton Hundred’s favorite suitcase brand is his Kriega, and he used US-5, US-20, and US-40 Dry in his packs. In addition to luggage, it also includes lights that support high beams while driving.
Straight to work on the bike and following a long build session, everything comes together and it looks great. I have to say, Thornton Hundred Motorcycles can really make something one-of-a-kind, and this touring setup is probably something that even I’d be able to rock on a daily basis.
Not only does this build look great, but it’s also quite functional with tons of storage spaces, upgraded lighting, and endless amounts of style. Plus the lighter wheels aren’t too shabby. More updates are expected from this build, and a more in-depth review will be posted in the future.
