Wrenchmonkees Hardtail Chimp

Triumph T120 hardtail bobber custom
The latest custom from the Copenhagen hotshop Wrenchmonkees is based on a Triumph Bonneville T120. And no, it’s not for sale. Wrenchmonkees #14 is called ‘Hardtail Chimp’ and was built in conjunction with owner Peter Kilmose, pictured—who has thoughtfully set up a blog to document the build. It’s a 1970 bike running a 1967 motor with authentic Amal 930 carbs, Boyer Bransden electronic ignition, and a Morgo 750cc kit to increase power. The whole lot is stripped back in classic Monkees style and finished in soft black, and it looks absolutely vidunderlig.
