I met Adrian Packett years ago when he had a little shop in Venice, CA. Turns out he’s been a busy boy and has opened a full-fledged custom shop. He still stresses his bread and butter is maintenance and performance upgrades but if you check his site you’ll see he’s turning out some pretty cool custom bikes as well. I bumped into him at the British Custom’s bike show recently and saw a few of his bikes and his cheeky products. He’s the self-proclaimed “first motorcycle company to sell a leather strap-on”. And he’s not lying!
He has his leather strap-on which is a easy solution to cover up Triumph’s racing stripes without requiring a new paint job. Actually pretty cool and made in high quality. The other product he was showcasing was his ‘thirst eliminator’ on-bike bottle opener. Who needs a bottle opener on your motorcycle, you might think? Well, I’ve been camping a la Triumph more than once and could have used one before! Good on ya Adrian…keep it up mate!
