Sinroja R12 "TEC x Sinroja Bonnie"
This build is our first Triumph we’ve touched, but nothing too special. The idea was to keep the build simple and effective. It was a personal build aimed for a particular event Malle Mile. We had the bike as daily commuter and when Malle Mile was round the corner we thought to mod the stock bike up for a fun weekend off road. We love simple effective customs, just the right changes to make it look unique but still practical everyday bike with elegance.
When it came to the build itself we called up our friends over at TEC Bike Parts who specialise in good quality aftermarket parts. They loved the idea of this build and the fact it’s going to be a bike enjoyed daily with their products on, so they partnered up and helped us out with their full range of parts. Along with that our sponsors Continental supplied us with the perfect set of tires for the off road event TKC80’s.
Unfortunately / fortunately we had visitor come to shop whilst we had the bike on the bench and he loved the look of it and ended up buying it before we got a chance to take to Malle. But that’s business and we guess we must have done a decent job for someone to just buy it by looking at it first time in works.
It’s a great budget build for someone who just want to enjoy riding without worrying about the high price tag or bike being damaged etc. whilst still looking good and having fun! The client wanted exactly that so as always we delivered what client needed.
The build as all our builds starts from a thorough look through every single parts on the bike. Based on the design, budget and clients requirements each component gets looked at.
The front end got overhauled using brand new TEC suspension set up with preload adjusters making it easy to adjust the handling. Wheels got blasted and repainted all black instead of black / silver SE spec. Mudguard got chopped and clean up. Forks, yokes all repainted to bring the life back into them. TEC also provided some billet machined carb / EFI tops, rear passenger footrest blanks and sump guard.
Then came the tank, we wanted to keep it subtle so went with all metallic black paint with gun metal grey stripes and modern triumph logo. TEC also provided Monza fuel cap along with some really nice gel coated side panels which were painted black again with gun metal lines. The seat is aftermarket triumph part to keep the costs down.
We swapped the lights with aftermarket headlight and brackets along with some Rizoma bullet indicators which work as tail lights, brake lights and indicators in one. TEC also came through with nice tail tidy and number plate holder.
In the rear we repainted the wheels and swingarm and put some new chains and sprockets to give the bike new lease of life with some TEC rear shocks. We also adapted TEC rear sets using BMW R100RS rear master cylinders for rear brakes to keep the clean look.
Lastly we cleaned up the engine, gave it fresh filters and oil along with full high level stainless TEC exhaust system that sounds amazing. We dyno tuned the motor and did a nice map which runs slightly rich on overrun to pop and spit fire through the sweet exhaust system.
We hope you enjoy reading about the bike.
