Norfolk’s Old Empire Motorcycles are no strangers to classy and refined builds and, when commissioned
Now, off the back of the original build, they decided to do another, only this time with a less radical and
more useable focus to the finished bike. This new machine also utilises a number of bespoke parts that have
also been made available from the OEM web shop, meaning that others can take inspiration from this machine
when building their own now.
The addition of a headlight on the new machine is the most noticeable difference between the two bikes, with the
previous T120 not featuring one at all. Things are kept simple with a unit that integrates built-in indicators, which
also helps to keep the front end looking really clean and minimalistic.
The same can be said of the tail too, with modifications made to the rear subframe to allow the use of a Z-Flex LED
strip tail light and indicators.
The stock clocks are also retained, helping to keep costs down slightly – also making things slightly easier in the
building process as they’re renown for being notoriously difficult to replace on new Triumphs. The original tank is
also retained, and has just been de-badged, keeping things simple.
The ride-by-wire throttle has been replaced with a conventional cable set-up, with a Motogadget unit helping to take
care the electrical logistics in doing so. A mean new exhaust system was also fitted, ditching the catalytic converter
and stock pipes.
