Arnaud is an architect. He has a particular taste for creative things, and once he got his driving license he couldn’t find a motorcycle that fills his search of singularity. Then he entrusted our custom workshop to design this unique Triumph Bonneville T100 La Machine for him.
Arnaud is a busy man, we never met and co-designed his project by phone exclusively. By his job, he’s particularly good at expressing his vision of the kind of motorcycle he was interested in, it was easy to agree about the style. As a new owner of the driving license, he had to go for the Triumph Bonneville T100.
We chose to play with the glossy and brushed contrasts on this project. The gas tank was brushed, and the first coat of varnish let the brushed texture visible. The darker parts of the tank hide this brushed effect and strongly change its shape and offer it a different dynamic. The seat also mixes different textures, with plain leather and suede. Arnaud wanted a motorcycle that is easy to use and offers character. We suggested this re-design of our La Machine model, which includes the best parts designed and manufactured by our team: Flat triples trees, machined aluminium handlebar controls, Bates headlight with mini integrated speedometer, short bobber exhaust, short leather seat kit…
