Jano Cycles’ old school Triumph bobber

Triumph bobber
One of the best things about running this website is discovering talented new builders who haven’t been picked up elsewhere. And the quality of the work being done in back street garages is often astounding.

Slovakian Jano Bachleda of Jano Cycles, Colorado, is a case in point—his custom Triumph bobber (called ‘Brassie’) just oozes style and thoughtful engineering. The front frame loop is from a 1967 Triumph T120R, with the motor coming from a 1973 750. The rear wheel and hub are from a Triumph 650, and the front wheel is from a 1967 Honda.

Although the gas tank is original, Jano made the hardtail and front end from scratch, along with the seat pan, oil tank and a multitude of small brass details. The result was worth the effort. [Thanks to owner Daapo Reo.]
