We love the work of DP Customs, and they've done another great job with their new DP Customs Triumph Bonneville - Rusi ($TBA). This is the first Triumph they've worked on and it looks like they'll be getting requests for a bunch more. This bike features a custom tail section, 2 into 1 exhaust, tank and seat. Name brand components used include Brembo, Sudco, Progressive Suspension, Ballistic, ISR and Bitwell. This would be an awesome bike to own.
This one off custom to come from VDB Moto is pretty special and will be difficult to be bested for some time to come. The VDBMOTO H1 ($CALL) Harley project is based around the 1999 Sportster 1200 which has undergone a complete overhaul including a dynamic new pair of Showa inverted forks, 18” Spoke wheels front and back, shortened the frame and added a Boyle Custom air cleaner. The beastly V Twin still sounds as throaty and gut punching as expected, so now is the time to plan your own special bike.
