This is Mark Drew's incredible Triumph 60's style show bike. I was lucky enough to grab a few iPhone shots before it got loaded into a container bound for Yokohama. It's first outing will be at the Moon show in Japan early December. Mark has been working around the clock for many months to get it finished. I reckon the bike and the story of it's build will be in dozens of magazines and websites before too long. A few things right here though. He hand polished a lot of stuff, the frame included, a lot of those shiny bits and bobs aint chrome. The lucite parts were also all hand made by Mark, lots of cutting, shaving and more polishing there. There's a whole host of other hand fabbed parts too, the more you look the more you see. And before you ask, yes the bike does run, take a look at the Yokohama show promo video we posted a few days ago for proof of that. However that's not the point with this bike.
