Tamara Raye, so 70’s blond on a bobber motorcycle called L’Assassin… based on a 1964 Triumph Bonneville T120R, featured on MecaMotors. The photo was taken during Born Free 2, and the motorbike was owned by Jon Rispante at the time.

Yet another teaser photo of Mitch Sander's beeeautiful 1966 Triumph Bonneville custom. He built this thing from the engine out himself…. it still amazes me. Now that is Garage Built.
I’ll later be doing an article on his bike… pointing out small details like the speedo placed next to the seat.

Behold the 1966 Triumph Bonneville custom hard-tail bobber owned and built by Mitch Sander. 
I got to meet this really cool cat over the weekend who found this Bonny engine and then built around it. He did it all himself, including dreaming up a GSXR front end swap. 
More photos and backstory soon to come. Photograph by yours truly.
