Stomp around any respectable tune-and-service shop long enough and you're bound to find something worth a second look. Such proved to be the case on a recent visit with our friends at Classic Cycles in Orange County, CA.
This interesting Brit custom was tucked between a rusty Trumpet and an old desert sled in proprietor Tony Dunn's service section, so we dragged it out for a quick peek. After a little e-tag, we finally got in touch with the bike's owner, Mr. Mark Reeder. Here's what Mark has to tell us about his ride:
Owner: Mark Reeder Builder: Joel Pippett at Marvelous Customs Year, make and model: Rebuilt ’56 Triumph T-110 pre-unit with 750 Morgo kit, belt drive and ARD electronic magneto in a Speed Twin frame Fork: ‘30s Norton Girder
