2007 Triumph 900cc Scrambler Custom

Post-World War II, Triumph’s larger twins remained recognizably similar to the first Speed Twin of 1938. Continually developed through the 1950s and ‘60s, the 650cc upright parallel twin proved to be a fantastically successful engine architecture mounted in a light and superb handling chassis. The ‘C’ Scrambler models proved to be hugely popular and successful in competition all over the world through the 1960s, until the onslaught from machines from Japan and Sweden and the eventual closure of the firm.

Then in 1990, John Bloor reintroduced the firm, immediately tapping into the company’s history with models named Daytona, Trident and Trophy. But it took a further ten years for, arguably, the greatest name to find something suitably special. The new Bonneville was introduced in September 2001 with 800cc of upright, parallel twin, a pair of carbs a tubular steel frame, twin rear shocks, and much more than a passing resemblance to the original. The capable, easy to ride/easy to own Bonneville naturally spawned the Scrambler name with a high pipe, tall suspension iteration.

The motorbike offered

The 2007 Triumph 900cc Scrambler on offer here has seen a fair amount of customization. The original blue/white tank was painted with flat black truck liner paint, while a British Customs seat with integrated LED taillight was installed. A Bates-style headlamp sits up front of a #1 racing plate. Triumph adjustable brake/clutch levers are afore Scott grips on the dirtbike handlebars. A neat aftermarket speedometer sits in the middle with 6,500 miles on the odometer. Biltwell footpegs and twin high pipes in black finish the blacked-out theme of the bike.
