Egging takes 1st in Retro MOD in Seattle

J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Winner:

Aaron Egging’s ’73 Bonny

Aaron Egging takes 1st in Retro MOD at the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Show. Interest in Aaron Egging’s ’73 Bonny was intense. Enthusiasts and builders both circled the build.

Gleaming in the lights of Seattle’s Cathedral of Cool sat a 1973, robin egg blue Triumph Bonneville Bobber, highlighted with gold striping. Its chrome and paint glowed from unnumbered hours of polishing.

The T140 750cc stock mil was modified to 800cc with a Billet 800cc kit. The fully polished engine sparkled on the show floor of the Ultimate Builder Custom Show. The 2 piece rolling art features Megacycle cams, a lightened valve train, Morris magneto and finned covers.

The custom frame is modified. The bike includes an ACME springer, NOS 1960’s Wassell tank and fender, Akront shouldered rims with custom drilled “speed” holes and a custom seat. It features lots of aluminum and stainless, as well as a long list of handmade one-off parts.

A righteous win, Egging’s first place in Retro MOD took place at the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Show at Seattle’s Convention Center. Between the two buildings of the Convention Center is a classy glass and steel arch. Lit by spots and twinkle lights, the bikes can be seen from all sides and the custom builders spend substantial time with enthusiasts, answering questions and helping riders who are deciding what customizations to make on their rides.
