What do you guys think of this bad boy?

Just got a salvaged 2009 675 and was thinking of the Striple conversion that seems to have been quite popular and then I came across this type of concept. I personally think it is quite cool and unique.

This is my first Triumph and I have been riding a 78 Honda CB that I turned into a cafe racer which has been a ton a fun. I got spoiled when I had the chance to ride a Ducati sport bike this summer and realized that motorcycles can be way more fun then I ever imagined. I had to find something work on this winter and the right deal came along and now I am down to bare bones and rewiring madness. I may still go the street triple route but this Spirit of the Seventies machine really has my attention. Let me know what you think.

Looks like a great idea but a lot of fiberglass fab work. Gl and keep us updated.

I really like that look but if you want it to be your regular rider then do something that has readily replaceable parts. Custom bikes are heart breakers when used for regular riding.

There is something about that front fairing that is super cool to me. I have been searching for what bike this would be off of and no luck. Airtech doesn't have one similar. Anyone recognize it? It might be a custom concept but I thought someone may recognize it on here.

That would be the perfect combination of classic cafe racer design with modern technology.

Whatever you do, make sure you post a build thread. Love seeing this kind of stuff.

Good luck.

I have seen that front fairing on a few older Ducatis at some track days. Not sure if they custom built them or if they were able to buy them?
