Impoz Speed Racer

The Triumph Speed Triple is a terrific bike straight out of the box, and it’s been a huge sales success for Triumph. Ample power comes from a 1050cc DOHC, three-cylinder, fuel injected engine and the styling is unusually distinctive—thanks to those ‘bug-eyed’ twin headlamps. But you don’t see many customs based on the Triple, unlike its Bonneville stablemate. So this French machine caught my eye. It’s the work of Benjamin Blanchard, a 27-year-old graphic designer from Cannes, in the south of France.
