Analog Motorcycles Custom Triumph Street Twin Scrambler
From the moment we seen this custom build on Pipeburn, we knew we had to show you it!
This is Chicago based firm Analog Motorcycles Custom Triumph Street Twin 900. Now, as you can see, the team has worked their magic to change the Street Twin into a scrambler and we must say they have done an excellent job. The model was originally built for the Rebel Yell Bourbon “Rebels Uncaged” competition, an event in which the team have previously been involved with. In addition to this, the custom scrambler has also made an appearance at this year’s Handbuilt Show.
Tony Prust, the owner of Analog Motorcycles has stated that:
“We contacted Triumph and they gave us a great deal on a new 2017 Triumph Street Twin 900. I purchased a 2016 Street Twin of my own when it was released last year and from previous experience I can say it is a great base for a custom. Triumph is also coming out with their version of a Street Scrambler this year, but I really wanted to build something even more capable of some real off-road riding”.
In order to turn this masterpiece into a Scrambler, the team at Analog created some custom rear shocks after lifting the bike up around 2.5 inches and used the front forks from a 2014 Triumph Scrambler. The motorcycle gained some new Michelin Anakee Wild Tyres to help create an aggressive/off-road styling, as well as receiving a new rear subframe.
In addition, the team has said that they wanted to ensure the bike kept some of its modern functionalities so they retained traction control and ABS but customised each to help fit the new look, in addition to keeping the skid plate, engine protectors and crash bars. Also newly customised was the seat pan, aluminium side covers, and CNC foot pegs.
In our opinion, one of the best parts of the new model is the custom paint in electric blue for the rims and accents, as it now looks totally unrecognisable.
