A Spanish-built Bonnie that’s right up our alley
Here at The Bullitt, we’re no stranger to modified Triumph Bonnevilles. There’s no doubt these bikes beg to be customized, and with so many being done, it’s harder to stand out from the crowd. It can still happen…there is, in fact, room for more good looking Bonnies out there, and this fine specimen is exactly that. Macco Motors‘ “Dusty Pearl” started it’s life as a mag-wheel Bonneville SE. The bike’s owner initially wasn’t too into customized bikes but after seeing Macco’s first build he fell in love with their style and wanted to change everything.
The premise was to make an industrial-looking bike yet retro at the same time. The first modification was to change the original mag wheels to spoked wheels. Once they cracked the egg, the decided to make a full omelet, changing nearly everything on the bike.
According to Macco, the most note-worthy contributions to Dusty Pearl are the handmade seat and the rear side panels that leave the rear brake brake pump outside. Some of our favorite mods are the Supertrapp dual mufflers, the beautiful paint scheme and the seat/tail combo. All in all, it’s a job well done.
