Thornton Hundred Motorcycles will turn your Triumph into a badass bobber
There is a biker gang of rugby internationals who also trust Millhouse to find the goods. Englishman Jack Nowell and Welshman Josh Navidi and George North are clients of Thornton Hundred Triumph. Navidi said: âI rode a Yamaha 80 motocross bike as a kid, but in my early teens I got to a point where I had to choose between competitive rugby and racing motocross. I obviously chose rugby, but I have always kept an interest in cycling, even though my parents told me ânoâ to have a road bike. But I’ve always wanted a cruiser to get on board and have coffee and something to eat.
âThen, in 2019, I wanted to get back on a bike. George North kept talking about his bikes and initially I was looking at Harleys, but people kept saying “go Triumph”. So I put down a deposit on one in Thunder Road, Bridgend, took my test before I left for the World Cup, came back, found Jody and sent my bike for him. be transformed into a Bonneville Bobber.
“I climb on it, I reach the end of my road, I open it and it makes you forget everything. I tend to tour the Brecons and West Wales. The wider wheels make a big difference and Jody changed the position of the seat and the footrests slightly and it’s so comfortable. Everyone asks questions about it.
More and more people are asking questions about Millhouse. One wonders how many executives of bicycle manufacturers have asked, “Why haven’t we spotted this guy?” ”
âWe don’t really need to sell. People contact me, I bring them in, show them around, talk about bikes and by the time they leave they’re captivated – they’ve invested in me.
His favorite? âMy own Triumph Bobber. It will be the fastest bobber in the world – supercharged and nitrous.
Could there be an imminent name change for Thornton Two Hundred?
