2004 Triumph Bonneville T100 Cafe Racer


I know that I just posted another T100 that has gone through a cafe conversion, but I found this one and I really, really like it. While the lack of clubman bars or clip-ons is somewhat disconcerting, I buy the seller/builder’s explanation that these Norman Hyde M-bars are just plain more comfortable. And given the decent spec of the rest of the kit on the bike, I think we can forgive him that. And the overall look of the bike is just smokin’!

Some of the cool stuff on the bike includes the upgraded front and rear suspension, the horsepower upgrades (carbs and pipes specifically), and the overall low key cosmetic changes (seat, bars, and rear-sets). You can check out the listing for more details.

Currently, the auction is around $3,500 with just under 6 days left. This is an extremely well built bike with some top quality kit that will make the winner of the auction very happy. I think I will have to post a follow up after the close of the auction to see where it ends up…

    The Norman Hyde M bar is a close cousin to the clubman bar. The M bar was developed by Hyde to replicate the position of a clubman bar, but would allow fitment to the Triumphs of the day, which mounted the handlebar using p-clamps that would not accommodate the angular welded design of the traditional clubman bar. While it is a moot point on this Bonneville with its split bar clamps, I feel that the softer appearance of the M bar looks better atop a curvy British roadster any day.

    Thanks for the comment, David. I think I might post your comment on the main blog.
