Quality over quantity today: just two images, but of the highest order. If you were at the 2008 Legend of The Motorcycle Concours d’Elegance, you may remember Californian Ron Peck’s show-stopping 1972 Triumph Rickman café racer. This is Peck’s latest creation, and it’s just knocked the socks off visitors to ADV Rider. It’s a 1966 Triumph 650, extensively reworked into a beautiful street tracker. Peck stripped the bike down to its component pieces, modified the rear frame to accept a fiberglass seat pan, and then tidied up and repainted the frame before reassembling the machine. He completely rebuilt the motor and installed polished crankcases, along with forks from Ceriani and Boriani rims—fitted with Pirelli M53 tires. Head over to ADV Rider for more images of the finished bike, or check out the build step-by-step on Ron’s blog. [Via Motorcycle Photo of the Day.]
