Congratulations to Luan Nguyen of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1972 Custom TR6 Triumph "Atom Bomb".
Luan won a Mr. Pete's Grill gift certificate provided by Mr. Pete's Grill. This was Luans first time to our meet with the "Atom Bomb".
Luan was here with his wife Thao and daughter Cecily... hmm, I wonder if Cecily voted for dad...
This wild custom is Luan's first road bike. He told me that he grew up riding dirt bikes as a kid, and found this bike back in November he just had to have it. Built by Clay Rathburn of Atom Bomb Motorcycles in Richmond Virginia, Luan bought this bike as is.
The Bonneville is almost entirely custom. The frame is entirely hand made along with the split fuel tanks, and the rear oilbag/fender. No battery, so it's all magnito for the lights. Too many custom bits to mention, check out the photo gallery and see for yourself.
Thanks Luan for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our April Gallery.
