Mark Reeder's Sinner


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

Front wheel: 21" spool with an Avon tire
Rear wheel: 19" early Sportster hub with a Firestone bias ply tire

Special mods:
10 1/2" disc brake on back; PM 4-piston rear caliper; rear master cylinder molded to custom exhaust by Joel Pippett; Wassel tank is molded to frame, but I’m able to remove it; Bates seat with a P-Pad; original English ribbed fender; molded rearview mirror on handlebars

Thanks to: Joel Pippett and Damon York; Tony and Ryan at Classic Cycles; Scottie at Cycle Zombies; Mike Davis at Born Losers

A lot of cool and unique details, those "SS" pipes are pretty rad too

That's one bad-ass Triumph. Those freakin' pipes are awesome!

Over all a gorgeous bike! But if I have said it once I have said it a million times, all that SS stuff just looks like a bunch of unnecesary decoration.

choppers as showbikes are supposed to be over the top just like this one I like it and enjoy the overall concept of working it in to the accesorys and brakets.Besides ss lightning bolts rule like there's no school!!!

Point taken. Fair enough. Showbike flair.

The SS stuff is there to stir-up reaction...seems like its working. You want "old-school," there you go.

Very,VERY cool. Great Work

Interesting that most every element on the bike is excellent work, but it just doesn't come together as a whole for me. The front end doesn't seem to match the rest of the bike, or not enough rake. That could also just be the photos. The only one who knows if the rake is right is the rider, of course.

I'm on my G1 and I can't see the pics. WTF?

Commented on 4-12-2010 At 09:03 am

Revmike you nailed it. I look at my bike all the time and wonder how does it look something looks different. I always wondered if a pre unit front end would look better. Bikes stock in the front but shit I love this springer.
