Simple but sweet
Customizing the Hinckley Triumph Twin doesn't need to be about reducing. With a few simple modifications your Triumph Twin could look as good as this build by us here at Alo’s Cafe.
Named the ‘JAST 214’ this Custom Triumph Twin is based on number 923 of the 1000 T214 Triumph produced to commemorate Texan Johnny Allen’s 1956 land speed record set at the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats.
This particular customization features Alo’s Slim seat (available in either black or brown natural leather) and Alo's Tank 2, a sculpted Tank in a very attractive shade of blue and adorned with retro Triumph air-brushed detail, unique to Alo's Cafe.
Crafted in fiberglass and supplied with a Monza style cap, this super cool tank allows for the fitting of the stock tachometer or speedometer into the tank. With the remaining gauge then being enclosed in Alo’s single speedometer housing.
On the right-hand side of this Hinckley Twin is Alo’s Messenger Bag, a great product for storing a helmet, waterproofs or your laptop for work, and again is available in black or brown leather to match the seat.
There are plenty of details to be seen on the JAST 214 and include Johnny Allen beloved Texas star adorning one side of the satin black side covers, with ALO’S JAST 214 on the other. The handlebars are from LSL and the CNC’d sprocket cover you can also find in the Alo's catalogue.
Full-on customs aren’t for everyone, they don’t make practical everyday riders and they can be a pain to insure. Bikes like the JAST 214 prove that simple mods can turn a humble Triumph Twin into something a little special.
