Classified Moto Take The Triumph To Fury Road
Secretive Bike Customisers Create A Monster
The secretive Richmond, Virginia bike shop Classified Moto don’t have a showroom, and don’t even open to the public, and their space is a disused hidden-away mule barn.
Still, they’ve become known for their signature style. “They’re not cafe racers, they’re not choppers. Nor are they bobbers, street trackers or rat bikes. They’re a Frankenstein combo of old and modern components…” the shop’s website explains.
So a Kentucky Bourbon company asked the bike customisers to do something with a Triumph. And in their hands the 2007 Triumph Speed Triple 1050 went all ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’. “It has a kinda apocalyptic look” said John Ryland understatedly of the chunky-tyred monster bike.
