Beijing-based motorcycle custom and repair shop Mandrill Garage unveils a revamped 2014 Triumph T100 dubbed “Power Street,” defined by its upgraded tech and aesthetics compared to the original design.
According to Pipeburn, the project came to fruition at the request of a client, as the interest for cafe racers and custom variations are booming in China.
Luo Hao of Mandrill Garage essentially gave the motorcyle a more futuristic makeover, while still maintaining its retro vibe. With the gas tank placement remaining intact, the bodywork incorporated a variety of modern materials and techniques employed. The front number board sports a 3D appearance, which continues to the carbon fiber sideboards that helps funnel air in towards the engine.
Behind those components are a pair of yellow lensed fog lights join that join the LED headlight, but the majority of the custom work is directed at the rear subframe, now composed of carbon fiber and alloy. In this area, individual pieces of carbon extend further rearwards to create the single saddle, which is covered in leather, and also houses the separate tail lights.
Furthermore, the racer’s new rear end flaunts a single sided swingarm from a Ducati 1098, as both the front and back are outfitted with gold wheels from the Italian brand, alongside Showa forks. More gold detailing is continued throughout the body’s paintwork, illustrating graphic lines and the logos that perfectly juxtapose against its deep glossy black finish.
