It’s 2016, and if you like scramblers then you are one of the two types of people who admire this sort of machine. One set of individuals are those who appreciate what companies like Triumph, Ducati and Yamaha are doing with the scrambler variants in their modern classic range. You understand and agree to the appeal of a motorcycle that provides the best of every kind of terrain experience while being brand new and reliable, and off course, comes with a warranty. On the other hand, there are those who believe that a scrambler is best enjoyed the old-fashioned way. After all, the scrambler as a machine was born at a time when motorcycles were just motorcycles without any segmentation and riders would put together self-sourced parts that would make their machines more off-road/road worthy. Keeping this ideology in mind, British Customs has come up with a unique set of parts to help create a good-looking, yet functional Triumph Bonneville Scrambler right at home.
If you aren’t aware already, the Triumph Bonneville is probably one of the most customisable modern classics there is today. Apart from a numerous build variation that Triumph offers themselves, that also includes the upcoming Street Twin Scrambler, the British Customs Triumph Bonneville Scrambler kit comes as a do-it-yourself option that almost anyone with literally no tooling knowhow can assemble themselves over a weekend. The kit thats on offer is rather simple, consisting of a nice BC x Empire shotgun exhaust, a BC original slammer seat and a Renthal Fat Bar. All these mods mean that the resulting Triumph Bonneville Scrambler is a balanced mix of comfort riding and some pretty bad-ass sound effects; some of which can be easily spotted from the photo and video footage that was created off Ernie Vigil’s own Bonneville Scrambler build with British Customs parts on.
