The TRONSA aka "Pearl Necklace"
Build Completed: August 2012
This bike is part Triumph (Engine/Tranny/Brakes), part Honda (front end/swingarm), and part BSA (gas tank/frame) - hence the name TRONSA
We were contacted by a customer who wanted something similar to a Honda he saw online. Since we specialize in British bikes we steered him more in that direction. Especially since something like this hasn't been done before with a Brit powerplant (as far as we knew). We wanted something that was a mix of form and function - classic and modern. This is a delicate balance to achieve and have it come out looking and performing well. We think we hit the mark right on with this custom monoshocked hellion!
There's a ton of one-off Choppahead custom parts and engineering in this. We love projects like this because we get to flex some and show that our talents go beyond the classic bobbers that we build do to customer demand.
