Triumph Thruxton 1200/R Bonneville T100/T120 Tail Lamp kit.

Don't believe a word of it!  Size does Matter!! How can you live with such a Monstrosity!!!
A fender can look good. So I have made a bolt on, plug and play kit exclusively, for those that didn't buy a modern classic, by mistake. Keeping the tail light size and style compatible to the vintage of the motorcycle.
Kit is available with choice of 4 different tail lamps. With or without turn signals. Custom aluminum housing finished in Polished or brushed satin with all stainless hardware.
 These hand made custom kits are a great deal considering the design and work involved in their being. No crying about the price. Please compare to a plastic OEM replacement.

Triumph Street Cup Street Bench Seat Bonnie/Scrambler Fender Eliminator.

I have named this kit the "Street Cup" fender eliminator as it fits this model with the stock seat.
But.... it fits so much more.  Bonneville T100, T120 and Street twin if used in conjunction with bench seat or seats that expose frame tubes.
Designed so tail light mounts high. Right up snug under seat.
Simple bolt on fit. Plug and play harness option.  Available with standard 10mm or o.e.m signal mounts.


Fitted with OEM mini LED signals and LED tail light







Turn Signals can be tucked in tight or spaced out up to an inch.

BMW R NINE T R 1200 GS THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR COVER

The object of making this cover was to keep as small and snug fitting as possible maintaining strength to protect throttle potentiometer and conceal connector harness. I wanted an alternative to the erector set (Mechano) look that requires a stack of spacers and overly long screws.
Fits 2006-2014 fuel injected boxer models. Not liquid cooled.

So you now own a gorgeous Triumph with a hideous (temporary) tail light.
                                What can you do?
Well there are some kits available constructed from a piece of bent up plate that show all the wires hanging out the back of the lamp.  But ....its no upgrade.
This kit does not require a mechanic or electrician to install and is a big upgrade in quality and looks.
These are some of the benefits of the low profile almost plug 'N' play tail lamp kit.

   2/ Easy swap out any tail lamp.
   3/ No visible wires hanging out back of lamp. All connectors concealed/weather proofed in housing

Here is a little trick way to slick your license plate with a stock fender set up. Might not be the best                            idea if you live in a state that's main revenue is writing traffic tickets.
With hacksaw or cutoff disc slice 7/8" either side of bracket. Can be bent fairly easy or gently formed with a hammer. I found a 2 1/2" radius worked.

Desert racer style (Thruxton/Scrambler fender). Reduced to width of fender and easily read.
