The sweet bike, known as Kiwi By Ton-Up Garage ($CALL) started its life as a carb version Triumph Bonneville. In order to turn it into a Ton-Up classic they made changes to the rear subframe to accommodate the new seat and mudguard. The look was further updated with a smaller headlight, taillight, new turn signals, and a new retro looking speedometer. The seat is guaranteed to age gracefully because it was built with shoe leather supplied by Portuguese shoe maker Nobrand. If you want to add some of this look to your own Bonneville the exhaust pipes were built to be plug and play and are for sale at Ton-Ups Garage store and soon on their webshop.
