Two-Wheeled Hot Rods: The Trick Triumphs of Champions Moto [Video]
Most of us are familiar withhot rodsthat roll on four wheels, be theystreet rods,customs,pro touringor some other sub-genre. But if you stop and think about it, there are many sub-genres of two-wheeled hot rods, as well (choppers,café racersandracer replicasto name just three). And as you might expect, there’s room for that list of subgenres to grow.
For example, a company calledChampions Moto(in collaboration withSo-Cal Speed Shop) has created what could best be called a handful of “street-tracker” Triumphs that combine vintage flat-track speedway racing andcafé racerlooks with modernTriumphBonnevillerunning gear. Champions Moto and So-Cal Speed Shop both deserve huge kudos for artfully combining no-fuss late-model mechanicals with timeless style from the ‘50s and ‘60s. And who knows? MaybeTriumphor some other manufacturer will be inspired to release more retro models of their own.
