Roger Allmond has turned out some very nice customs like the T Bob and the XYZ. Now, under the sponsorship of Bennetts Insurance, he’s working on a custom powered by the 2.3 liter Triumph Rocket 3 engine. Motorcycle News has a few in progress photos up and it looks a lot better, in my eyes, than some previous customs based around this engine.
This will be interesting to see when it’s finished and if it looks good, maybe a few other builders will take a shot at it. I think it just takes one guy to show it can look good before anyone else joins in. The engine just doesn’t seem at first glance like an ideal starting point for a custom. It looks like Roger might pull it off.
Thanks for the tip, Andy.
