You will see that we have a 1973 TRIUMPH 750 unit 5 speed from The Factory Metal Works. This little motorcycle has some power and the sweet looks of a bobber. With the front fender gone and a springer front end on the bike that screams the 1970’s bobber to me. The springer front end and with almost everything stripped down and ripped off that is not needed makes it light and nimble.
1973 TRIUMPH 750 unit 5 speed from The Factory Metal Works was featured on the cover of Cycle Source magazine in December 2011 and was a main feature in Back Street Hero’s magazine in January 2012. This 1973 TRIUMPH 750 won 1st place editors choice award at the easy rider bike show in Charlotte North Carolina.
I really like that old school rear tire. There are a few things missing on this bobber that I need and sadly they are just not there. As you can see from this photo there is a rear brake light. There are no mirrors or turn signals sadly. I think that if there were mirrors and turn signals this bobber would be a 5 out of 5. Sadly with them missing I have to rate it a 4 out of 5.
