A while back (seriously, a while ago) I met Mitch Sander up in Yakima, WA (he now lives in Seattle) through our mutual friend Dave Buchanan (redandblackattack.tumblr.com) and laid eyes on his beautiful Triumph.

Hard to pin a year and model on this bike, but the motor is a 1978 750cc T120 Bonneville, everything else is from random years or fabricated. Get more info about the One Motorcycle Show, or go check out the Chrome Industries + MotoLady One Show hosted ride on Friday!
It’s one thing to see stunters doing this, or racers who can get so low in corners they could scrape shoulder- but to see a retro custom like this, rider dragging hand in a parking lot… man, that just makes me all tingly inside. Photo of Jasin Phares by Adam Wright photography.
