Encore en provenance de la « Bike of he Month » des forums de www.triumphrat.net, j’ai trouvé la plus belle Legend TT que j’ai jamais vue.

Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas ce modèle, vous pouvez le (re)découvrir à cette adresse : http://www.triumphadonf.com/motos/mod_ac.php?mod=103

Cette préparation a été réalisée sur une Legend TT de 1999, au moteur 3 cylindres de 885cc.

Voilà les autres photos :

The Story
It all started with a pair of handlebars… I decided after looking around TRN that I wanted lower bars and bar-ends on my (then) stock Legend. Once I’d made that change the mod-ing bug bit me and wouldn’t let go. I started messing with the jetting and the airbox, looking for a few extra HP. I decided I wanted a more cafe’d look, so I started looking at fender and seat options. And then I got a wild hair to put a pair of USD forks on. That’s an epic tale in itself, but you can read the whole sorry story here if you’re a glutton for punishment…

The bike as it is now has been through four sets of handlebars, three sets of mirrors, three seats, two fenders, two tail-lights, three headlights… and the list goes on. Anything I could make myself I did (FEK, mounting brackets, radiator guard, etc.), mostly out of scrap aluminum – I have no machining skills or equipment. A few things, like the top triple clamp and wheel spacers I had to have done for me. I know it’s a bit of a love-it-or-hate-it style, but I dig the raw, unfinished vibe so I’m pretty happy with it. I’d like to clean up the wiring a bit somehow, and maybe find a better rear-hugger solution but in the meantime it’s a blast to ride – the extra power, better suspension, and improved handling have totally transformed the bike.
