1967 Triumph Bonneville Bobber

Kane of Villain Kustoms from Courtenay, British Colombia, Canada, made available these pictures of his great looking 1967 Triumph Bonneville Custom Bobber.

Kane: "Please note this is not a trailer queen, spit shined, belly button bike. She was built to ride. This is a Custom Bobber and she is exactly how I want her to look. Barebones, with no crap you don't need. If this is not your cup of tea, then surf away from this page. If it's right up your alley, then read on brother....."

"This girl is a strong runner and has never let me down. She's light and quick, long and low. Multiple show winner, at least here in Canaduh. She gets lots of attention. Lots of custom work and one of a kind. She lightly marks her territory, but hey, it's a Triumph!"
