271 Design GB500 TT Cafe Racer
Oliver Aschenbrenner, a former designer of Triumph, managed to transform a 1990 GB500 into a real beauty of café-racer.
Almost no part of the GB500 remained untouched. He repositioned the tank, hid the electronical system and the new Motogagdet m.unit control box, stripped down the frame to the bones and powder coated it for good measure. He rebuilt and repaired the engine with Honda OEM parts, saved the transmission and the cylinder head, and replaced the electric starter by a kick starter. And this is a result. A perfect combination of a brand new looking café racer with old lines and stylish details. Check out this masterpiece built by Oliver Aschenbrenner.
