Originally built in the 1970s, this Triumph Bonneville chopper was left for dead before being located by the current owner. Once acquired, the machine was treated to a complete restoration and renamed Outlaw.
Changes to the original 650-cc (40-cubic-inch) vertical-twin engine were limited to the addition of a "drag-pipe" exhaust. The forward part of the frame is stock, but the swingarm and shocks were removed and replaced by steel tubing, converting it to a hardtail. Girder forks were fitted in place of the original telescopics. A 16-inch spoke wheel with drum brake holds up the rear, while the 21-inch spoke in front has no brake at all.
Part of the restoration included a fresh coat of purple paint with classic yellow flames. The scheme is similar to what was originally applied in the 1970s, making this chopper a bit of history brought back to life.
