Fender and Triumph Get it On

I know this bike has been around for a while but there's nothing I love more than a good collaboration, Lennon McCartney did it, Hanna-Barberra teamed up, The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps joined forces, Bonnie and Clyde did …So when Fender and Triumph decided to get together this was the result. Built by the late Christian Clayton of , it's based around a 2009 Triumph Thruxton.

Fender and Triumph Get it On


I know this bike has been around for a while but there's nothing I love more than a good collaboration, Lennon McCartney did it, Hanna-Barberra teamed up, The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps joined forces, Bonnie and Clyde did it successfully and even the good old Australian Vegemite, and Cheese collaborated to create the Cheesymite Scroll.


So when Fender and Triumph decided to get together this was the result. Built by the late Christian Clayton of Sucker Punch Sally, it's based around a 2009 Triumph Thruxton. Minimal work has been done to the engine, but the stock suspension has been replaced with a pair of Ohlins along with the headlight being swapped for a HID unit. The seat also looks like the remnants of an old guitar strap.

The most noticiable feature of the bike is the paint job which was done by hot rod artist Sarah Ray. She managed to create the same look as a telecaster used by John Farnham's guitarist (For those non OZ readers John Farnham is a Musician, who has had more comebacks and a Rocky Film).


Somehow he just keeps going and going much like this Trumpy will be doing in years to come.

Rock on!

Tank prepped and ready for paint In between non-bike related work we've managed to keep things ticking over, thanks to bike night our weekly ritual.The progress on the Blossom the SR tracker is coming along nicely with most parts …We also managed to pop out a rather large ding from the Sweet Honda tank by spotting a couple of pieces of my old CD stand, we could probably thank Spotify for that.
