FOWLERS TRIUMPH OF Bristol has scooped the Public Choice Award in this year’s Bonneville Build-Off Challenge with their striking entry, the VE Day Commemorative Bike, as featured in last month’s Classic Bike Guide.
Thousands of votes were cast via the Bonneville Build-Off website, as nine Triumph dealerships across the UK competed to create the best custom bike.
General Manager of Triumph Motorcycles UK, Devron Boulton, said: “The VE Commemorative bike is a stunning piece of design with a strong British Army theme running throughout the custom build.
“The bike has combined both modern and heritage elements that seamlessly combine and, what has really impressed me with this bike, is how good it looks from every angle. Congratulations Fowlers Triumph.”
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day in 2020, Fowlers’ winning bike featured girder forks, canvas bags and big bars with British Army heritage as the inspiration for its build.
A blacked-out engine and exhaust and addition of commemorative badges on the cases and clocks with genuine Second World War accessories completed the custom-built tribute.
