Hammarhead Industries is a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based motorcycle outfitter. Their new Ninety-Two Triumph bobber harkens back to the days of bobbed fenders and flat black paint.
The Ninety-Two was originally built as a one-off for the founder of Swedish clothing company Dunderdon. The design turned out so well, Hammarhead Industries started producing more.
James Hammarhead, who runs the shop uses a 2007 or 2008 Triumph Bonneville as the base of the Ninety-Two. Marine-grade metal is used for the fenders, and the marine-grade paint (only available in black) is used for everything else.
The motorcycle is a true bobber, stripped of everything but the essentials. Keihin FCR carbs and a Zard exhaust with open drag pipes boost the performance of the 865 cc twin engine. Tall Avon tires and an aggressive suspension give the motorcycle a classic scrambler look.
The Ninety-Two is currently available with a 90-day lead time for the price of $16,500 from HHI online.
