Two weeks ago, four Chicago area Triumph dealers were given a bone stock Triumph motorcycle and were charged with the task of preparing these bikes for the Iron Moto Challenge. They were to prep the bikes by chopping, fabricating, installing performance upgrades, and doing paint and body work. The only rule was that they must install a British Customs parts package live on the streets of Chicago at the Motoblot Show, demonstrating how any Triumph owner can upgrade their bike with bolt-on BC parts using basic tools.

The teams from Motoworks Chicago, Northern Ohio Triumph, Team Triumph of Wisconsin and Windy City Triumph all threw down, right in front of the audience, to create an incredible atmosphere and crank out some impressive and totally unique custom Triumphs in the process. These builds came to life in front of the eyes of thousands of people as each crew completed their installs and put the finishing touches on their bikes. The teams got underway just after noon, and each team successfully installed their BC parts packages and completed their builds in the allotted five hours or less.
