Triumph Scrambler on the cover of March issue of Men's Journal

The March issue of Men's Journal features a green Triumph Scrambler on the cover, calling the bike one of the "New Essentials".

Problem No. 30: You want a vintage bike without the repair bills
Solution: Look at the fuel-injected, 865cc Triumph Scrambler, all knobby tires and chromed exhaust, built for hustling down roads paved or dusty. Then watch Steve McQueen jump the Swiss border in The Great Escape astride an eerily similar ride. Cool enough for ya?

Actually, it can be cooler with the addition of a drilled sprocket coverengine dresser bars, and a skid plate.

Just sayin'...

Admore Lighting Kit for Vespa GTS Topcases

Jim Hamlin has installed many Admore LED auxiliary running light, brake light, turn signal kits on a variety of bikes. Shoot he even installed a set on the side cases of my Piaggio BV 200!

(From my own experience, these lights are awesome for increasing your profile and making you more visible to other drivers. The above video was shot in daylight, so you really don't get the full effect of the lights.)

But we take a special pride in this new kit from Admore which is made to fit into red "reflectors" of a Vespa GTS topcase. That is because, we supplied the topcase Admore used create their prototype for these lights.

There is a great thread about this kit over on Modern Vespa, which includes some good step-by-step photos of an installation. Our pro-tip for the installation would be solder all connections rather than using posi-taps which are prone come loose from vibration many miles down the road.

Give Jim a call at the shop 203-544-7900 if you'd like some extra lights on your bike, now including Vespas!

Chocolate and Cream Bonnie

I know it sounds like something you'd get at a maltshop, but this color scheme is one of the sweetest factory paint jobs we've seen on a T100. Technically it is called "Vintage Cream and Chocolate". I just call it YUMMY!

We just got one of these in and it is already sold. We have another coming soon, but I doubt it will be here long, as everyone who sees it comments on what a gorgeous bike this is.

Production numbers for this color scheme were low, so if you want one you better speak up soon.

Rocket III Roadster

We have a Rocket III Roadster in Phantom Black on the floor ready to go home with some lucky soul.
The Roadsters have a tendency to get snapped quick, so we don't expect this one to last very long!

Custom Triumph Thunderbird

If ever there was a Triumph that just begs to be customized to the individual owner, it is the Thunderbird. It seems Triumph realizes this, as well, because the model came charging out of the gates with a huge variety of OEM chrome and farkles.

This blue and white beauty has a lot of these goodies added. Above you can see the short silencer, and dual seat.

This photo shows the back of the quick-release Summer windscreen, as well as a heaping helping of front end sparklies. This bike has a chrome upper and lower yokes,  and a chrome fork slider kit.

Above you can see another angle of the chrome forks, and the light bar with OEM lights and a PIAA cross country H.I.D. kit.

The short silencer exposes more of the rear wheel, so a chrome rear pulley kit has been added, as has a chrome wheel kit (which includes front and back wheels.)

Snowbound Daydream

So you are probably stuck in cage, just like us, but here is a little something to dream on.

A couple classic Guzzis, some twisties, and some Tom Waits.

The good life.
