Rivale – Triumph Bonneville

The thing that attracted me to buy at Triumph Bonneville was the fact that whether new or old, it would possess a beauty throughout it’s age.  I can image that when the tank has had a few dents and the polish has worn off the chrome, I would just embrace it’s aged look as Roberto Rossi has done with this model called Rivale.  Built from a 2003 T100, the cheeky “New / Old” decals on each side plays off the ambiguity of its age.  The worn leather seat, scrambler styled pipes and detachable saddle bag signifying that it is ready to travel anywhere, anytime.

  1. I totally agree with you about the beauty with age. One thing that is peculiar is that the bike has an older style to it but the forks are new age, that’s kind of odd to me.
