With its bodywork off, the Triumph's minimalist package is evident. The finished bike scales in at 348 pounds with no fuel, 40 pounds less than the stock bike and two pounds under the minimum weight limit for the class. We didn't go to any extremes to save weight-the only titanium bits are the front-caliper bolts-and there are plenty of ways in which the bike could be made even lighter. Gripster Sport tank pads ($42) from TechSpec provide some much-needed grip on the Triumph's narrow tank. We used Sebimoto bodywork from Yoyodyne ($620 for the seat and fairing); the seat unit installed perfectly while the fairing required some work to mount. Kasey's Auto Body in Torrance, California, did a fantastic job on the stock-appearing paint job, and we topped it off with a Double Bubble windscreen from Zero Gravity ($90) and Factory Effex numbers.
