YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE. Analog Motorcycles Rebuild Their Classic ’72 Triumph Bobber
It’s a fine line between perfection and obsession. One that is probably crossed once you find yourself customising a bike more than once. After achieving what most of us would find almost impossible to do the first time, Analog’s Tony Prust took a perfectly amazing ‘72 Triumph Bonneville bobber he built 10 years ago and decided to have another go. Who says you can’t gild a lily?
Wasting no time, Tony jumped straight into the build details of this, his personal ride. “We call it ‘El Matador’. It’s a ’72 Triumph Bonneville 650 Engine in a ’68 Triumph Bonneville 650 frame running a late 60’s BSA front end.” Phew. It’s clear is that the bike has come to be a sort of mascot for the company. While its sale has been on the cards for years, it always seems to be there every Monday morning when the shop’s doors are opened. What a way to start the week off.
