Rustom have come up with their new Triumph Bonneville Forty which is a new generation cafe racer. Rustom, which is formed by two pillars, Mattia and Roberto is a custom motorcycle shop based in the outskirts of Milan Italy. While Roberto comes with a strong history of customising bikes, Mattia has been an official Triumph mechanic for ten years. Turns out that both got together over a beer and decided to open a workshop to nurture and follow their dreams, this is how Rustoms took shape.
The Triumph Bonneville however, on which they built their Triumph Forty, was a 2002 model, 790 cc in displacement and fuelled by carburettors. The built started with a heavy makeover of the frame which was cut, looped and fitted with Rustom mono-shock swingarm set-up with YSS custom made shock absorber. The forks were covered with pair of telescopic fork covers and were lowered by 40 mm with progressive spring and preload adjustment. While a rear cowl made in-house at Rustom was fitted with an integrated LED light, and the tank gets the Art Deco styling, the handlebar grips on Rustom’s board-tracker handlebar were matched with the same theme by Alessandro Starace of AS Design. At the front sits a Rustom made LED headlight and turn indicators. Last but not the least, a pair of 18” custom made rims with Inox spokes were fit with Cocker Diamond on 4.00 x 18 and 4.50 x 18 on a tubeless conversion.
