Hawkized Triumph II
It doesn’t get much better than this! We get to build cool bikes that benefit a great cause. This café racer will go through life knowing it helped kids carve bowls, grind rails, ollie curbs, and ride the vert… what a satisfying life! Introducing our second Triumph for the
Tony Hawk Foundation
Stand Up for Skateparks
The stock Triumph
already has a great café style, we just helped it along with a few key notes. The wheels were disassembled, coated in a vintage red by
Olympic Powder Coating
then re-laced and trued by
. Once back at the RSD compound, we had them hand pinstriped by Tom Clark, our favorite sign painter. We bolted them up and connected the rear with a
countershaft sprocket and a
chain. Finned front sprocket cover and generator cover from
. The front wheel was replaced with a 17-inch rim so we could wrap both front and rear with sticky
Qualifier tires. Front fork spring kit and 970 series reservoir shocks were supplied by
. Chris Wood of
took care of the two-tone red paint job featuring the newest Hawk logo on the tank and some lettering and pinstriped panels on the tank. We wanted something special for the exhaust so we sent the bike to
, where Little D enticed his best guys to do a beautiful one-off, low-slung, 2-into-2 Titanium exhaust system. We love that they used their patented Power Bombs in the header down tubes. These are sure to sing the sweetest of songs to the pilot of this machine.
hooked us up with an airbox removal kit with
filters and a bunch of other trick bits like, adjustable
carb caps and clutch cable bracket. The stock seat was reshaped to create a nice café tail section and wrapped in leather by Mauricio Aguilar of Azteca Customs. RSD donated the grips, pegs, gas cap, tag bracket, custom rear grab bar and the overall design and flavor of the bike.
We can only hope that the youth of today will be ripping the skate parks while dreaming of carving the canyons on the freedom of a motorcycle. Once again we can’t thank Triumph and the Hawk foundation enough for letting us be a part of this incredible project.
Bike will be auctioned off this Saturday November 5th, 2011 at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, NV. All proceeds to benefit the Tony Hawk Foundation and Stand Up for Skateparks charity.
Hawk event number two
in Vegas is quickly approaching and we are thrashing to get the Hawkized Triumph Thruxton finished. Just did the design grind all day and sent these renderings off so we’ll see which one makes the Hawk smile. This is another build using some of the best Triumph components we could find coupled with a bunch of simple custom pieces we’re building here in the shop.
We are keeping it simple enough to stay 100% legal and fully functional while lightening and cleaning her up from head to toe. Clip Ons for the Thruxton are a must and our RSD 41mm clip on’s (in stock now) are a direct bolt on. Well do RSD
as well. Custom shaped and recovered vintage style seat is on the way. Minimized turn signals, Custom Paint by
front to back,
K and N filters
and lot’s of other great companies are helping out. Stay tuned to see the finished product and let us know which design you like the best. We’re pushing for the Grey-ish Tan.
