Just a few days ago, we have shown you this Superb Triton on our Facebook Page and the response was Superb as well. So, let’s dive into the world of Loaded Gun Customs and another beauty they have built; A Vintage Triumph Cafe Racer.
The Loaded Gun Customs Triton you could have seen on our page!
LGC has been on Cafe Racer TV and has put out some stunning bikes to date. They’ve built some awesome Triumphs and Triton. The video below is a teaser of his “Bucephalus” cafe racer build which has a very unique frame and a vintage motor. The aim is to fuse the tactile feel of vintage machines with the modern responsiveness of the latest sportbike. Light enough to pick up by yourself, the Bucephalus is shaping up to be victory of form and function.
In the video Kevin Dunworth of LGC tells us to stop thinking of it as a frame and to think of it as the engine. “We’re connecting the headtube and swingarm to the engine,” he says.
“It started out as a joke, me calling it ‘Bucephalus’…and it just stuck. When Michael Lichter invited me to display in his show at Sturgis I had a deadline and a empty bank account. All my friends in the industry (and out) came together to help me build Bucephalus. This project means so much to me, I cannot explain. It might seem silly or stupid to a normal person, but I think motorcycle people out there will get it. I hope you enjoy…” – Kevin Dunworth
