THE BLACK LIZARD - CREATURE OF THE DESERT

Words by Ben Giese

 
 

When teaming up with British Customs to build a custom Triumph Scrambler we took inspiration from the desert racers of the 1960’s & 70’s. We wanted this motorcycle to be clean and stripped down, without looking too chopped up or taking away from the existing lines of the Scrambler. The idea was to maintain the timeless and classic Triumph look while simplifying  just enough to accentuate its natural beauty. By removing a lot of unnecessary components and replacing them with more stylish British Customs products we were able to easily and seamlessly create a tougher, more minimal and refined look. Not to mention save a lot of weight and add tons of horsepower!

This British Customs "Weekend Project" was an absolute pleasure to work on. You don't need to be a master technician or fabricator to install these products, and that’s the beauty of British Customs. I was blown away by how easy it was and I truly believe that anyone with half a brain and a few basic tools can turn their motorcycle into a full on custom machine.

Self-expression has never been so easy!
