Kev and Tim from Spirit of the Seventies recently revealed their latest bike - TR9C Roadster built from 2010 Triumph T100. This build was comissioned by the guy named Nopadon who - after his Buell had been stollen - decided to spend the insurance money on something special and custom made, as the guys say, "with the attitude of the Buell, but the style and retro-class of a Triumph twin". So, that was it, right after the donnor - nice looking T100 - had been bought, Kev and Tim started the whole thing.

First, the rear end was rebuilt. With the subframe shortened the guys made a new solo seat and fitted a nice rear fender with the LED light. The rear pag carriers were removed and longer Fox shocks installed. Combination of the seat design and longer shock make the rear look a little bit higher and with black low-profile bars at the front position of the rider changes and gives him, as Kev says, "...a sportier feel".

As the primary intention was to make a roadster, Kev and Tim built two wide rims and shoed them in lumpy sticky tyres. Then the guys decided to install a ceramic coated high-level exhaust system (which they usualy fabricate for a Scrambler) to give this Bonnie some "classic enduro cool".

After the final performance improvements the bike was ready to go. She looks awesome and as the guys report, sounds pretty great too.
