Four Aces Triumph Hot Rod

Four Aces Cycle Supply
Four Aces Cycle Supply is a custom Triumph specialist based in Pacoima, California. These Valley boys ‘worship at the altar of the ribbed fender and peanut tank’, as this Pre-Unit Hot Rod shows. It arrived at the workshop for some minor fixing up; it left as a mix of 1948 Speed Twin and 1950s bobber, with muted colors applied by Rick Grindle. Four Aces’ classy website is a temple of So. Cal. style, and well worth a visit. While you’re there, check the stunning photo retrospective of the Barbarians, a So.Cal. motorcycle gang from the late 50s and early 60s.

    I’m not generally a fan of bobbers, but that bike is gorgeous! Good job Wes.

    Hi, I am very big fan of Harley-Davidson; also chopper and bobber bikes. This bike gives a very different imagination compared to other bobber bikes. Also like these silencers with cloth-wrapped colour tone combination.

    Looks like a close copy of this bike, which has been a favorite of mine for years:

  • The guys at Four Aces really know their Triumphs. They also work a lot with Tyler and Kyle from Low Brow Customs. Together they put together the English 101 and Triumph 650 rebuild DVD’s which are a great source for anyone building or maintaining a Triumph bobber.

    I like the bigger tank and the tail light on Barrys bike. But this is so close to my heart I,m gonna cry.
