2002 TRI­UMPH DAY­TONA/SPEED TRIPLE SHAUN MIDDLEMORE

Performance Bikes (UK) - - YOUR BIKES OF THE YEAR -

SHAUN MIDDLEMORE did the most con­vinc­ing job of mak­ing a de­cent mo­tor­cy­cle with­out spend­ing a lot of cash by us­ing a duffed-up, Cat C write-off Day­tona 955i for the ba­sis of this build.

Thrifty use of used parts, re­pur­posed orig­i­nal com­po­nents (in­clud­ing a bel­ly­pan cut from what was left of the orig­i­nal fair­ing) and cheap af­ter­mar­ket gear (mostly un­branded stuff from the won­der­ful world of the in­ter­net) gave the old Trum­pet a new life as a ‘Speed Trip­li­cate’, as he puts it. PB ap­plauds you, Shaun.
