The Metric TV custom build off has resulted in a lot of bikes which still seem to be waiting for their television debut. We mentioned the show some time back where a group of builders were each given a metric bike, cruiser or sportbike depending on their specialty, and given 180 days to produce something unique. They’ve come up with a few interesting customs and I thought I would show this one just to continue the Triumph powered custom theme from the other day when we featured the Triumph triple powered Ferrari Chopper.
This custom by MGS Custom Bikes began as a Triumph Rocket 3. What’s interesting is the builders don’t know beforehand what they’ll be working on and when MGS got a Rocket 3 they were a bit surprised. After the shock wore off they got to work and the result you see here utilizes more stock pieces than you might notice beyond the engine, things like gauges, gas cap and headlights and a few other pieces, but obviously the stock bike is now a mere memory. They haven’t produced a corner carver of any sort but the workmanship looks first rate. Somehow, I don’t expect to see a lot more Rocket 3 based customs but you never know.
