NOLA Tracker - TTRNO Custom

By Nick Napoda
on December 12, 2014

The Transportation Revolution New Orleans is the Gulf South’s premier Triumph, Ducati and Vespa dealership. We’ve made a concerted effort to build customs because we simply think they’re cool as shit! Our builds have been inspired by what we want to do with them. In this instance, we designed a bike that would be fun and comfortable around town with a classy clean look, but wouldn’t mind getting a bit sideways on a dirt track. 

 

The NOLA Tracker features 19” front/rear wheels and NOS flat track race bars. To get a simple look, the oil cooler and airbox were eliminated and all electronic components were hidden. Bar-end turn signals were used to slim down the front and rear of the bike and a lone LED tail light is seen only when it needs to be. Powder coated Arrow exhaust, British Customs seat, raw brushed tank/fender and simplified gauge cluster finish up this gentleman’s tracker. 

 

 

Scrambler Level 3 Accessory Package

By Maxwell Materne
on September 10, 2014

The Triumph Scrambler is a classic, adventure-seeking machine that with a few minor changes can become the modern minimalist’s dream it was meant to be.  Shown below is the perfect Scrambler for the urban rider who seeks the unknown through dirt roads on weekends.  We replaced the stock, bulbous tail light with a small, unassumingly bright LED light.  We also replaced the turn signals with tiny, hidden LED lights that also serve as brake lights in the rear for added visibility.  The tires have been changed to a more radical knobby to tackle any type of terrain you dare to push through, and the exhaust has been replaced with a higher-flowing, 2-into-1 system to ensure you are getting the most out of the machine. Come check out the Triumph Scrambler and let your adventure begin.

Thruxton Level 2 Accessory Package

on September 03, 2014

We like to think of Triumph’s Modern Classics as blank canvases, so we have begun to create custom options for each model ( Thruxton, Scrambler and T100). To simplify the decision-making process, we have funneled these options into three different levels: #1 being easy appearance upgrades, #2 being the easy appearance upgrades found in level 1 along with simple performance upgrades, and #3 being radical appearance and performance upgrades.  Each model has their specific set of levels.  The model featured here is the Level 2 Thruxton, equipped with: LED turn signals and brake light, smaller bar-end mirrors, 2-into-1 exhaust, K&N air filters and a few more additions.

TTRNO Custom Swamp Bike

By Maxwell Materne
on June 25, 2014

TTRNO's Swamp Bike is a custom scrambler build that started life as a bone stock Bonneville SE.  All modifications were performed by one of TTRNO's master techs Maxwell Materne and took 6 months from start to finish between day to day work. 

This Bonneville was torn down to the frame in order to change every last detail about the bike.  The wiring harness was removed, electronics relocated and harness rebuilt in a sleeker more efficient way.  This wiring modification allowed for a custom battery box to fit all sensors, electronic control unit and Ballistic battery neatly under the seat.  Two K&N pod filters finished off the look of a clean subframe, then it was on to a few custom bits from my friend Benjie at Benjie's Cafe Racers. 

He produced the exhaust, headlight bucket and seat to finish off the minimalist look. An oil cooler delete (oil running through frame instead), scrambler OEM rear sets, custom fenders and mounts, custom license plate mount, and a set of TKC80 tires were the last parts to come in before paint and poweder coating.  Final finishing touches were the Rizoma details with the integrated turn/tail/brake lights being the crowning jewels that pulled this minimalist bad-ass together.  Now all that's left is to get it dirty!

 

 

 

                  

 

Jared's Bonneville Road Racer

By Nick Napoda
on June 19, 2013

Here at TTRNO we love building cool bikes and what’s better than making a head turner is being able to keep it!  Each of us at TTRNO have committed to building a custom ride of our own and we want to share our journey with you.  Each week (or so) we will highlight the steps each of us is taking to make our dream bike.  First up:

Jared’s Bonneville Road Racer 

The goal for Jared’s Bonneville is to be a great street bike and an even better track bike, think Thruxton cup bike with no rules.  With this plan Jared can port and polish the head, build a big bore kit and do anything he wants without having to worry about getting kicked out of a specific race class.  This isn’t a race bike, just a classic looking bike made to run laps around sportbikes on track days. 

Here is how his bike started out its life.


First thing we’ll look at is what we would consider “Stage 1”:

Intake and Exhaust

Airbox eliminator kit - $641 Installed


    In order to make more power you need 2 things, more air and more fuel.  This clean looking airbox eliminator kit has K&N air filters and a well manufactured battery box that has mounts for all the relays and fuses.  A free flowing air filter means that more air is getting into the cylinders but without a free flowing exhaust this would be a lost cause.

BC 2 into 1 exhaust - $1,104 Installed (in brushed stainless) / $1,204 Installed (in ceramic black)


This exhaust not only sounds great with a low tone that’s just loud enough, but it allows the exhaust to flow significantly better.  The black ceramic coating also prevents heat from escaping through the exhaust walls with better insulation.  Since hot air flows faster the ceramic coating provides even bigger power increase over brushed stainless.  Now that there’s more air there needs to be more fuel as to not run lean.

Dyno tuning - $278 price may vary


    All bikes must run at a specific air to fuel ratio to operate properly.  Most manufacturers run engines at what is called stoichiometric efficiency, 14.7:1, this means that there are 14.7 parts air to every 1 part fuel, whereas in a performance application we try to get somewhere around 13:1.  The way get to this ratio on a fuel injected bike is by manipulating each fuel cell in the ECU’s fueling matrix.  With the amount of additional air flow through Jared’s cylinders, it required significantly more fuel, so after adjusting every cell in the matrix he produced an additional 8.31 HP and 5.75 ft-lb!  That’s more than a 13% power increase!

 

Tune in next week for even more custom work!
