Triumph Speed Triple custom
Take a brisk hour-and-a-half ride south of Salzburg and you’ll arrive in Oberpinzgau, home of Julian Schneider, one of Austria’s top Triumph specialists. Schneider is best known for building the Triumph Tridays Edition bike, but his own motorcycle, finished in October last year, is equally interesting. It’s called the Burt Munro Edition, because Schneider is a big fan of the New Zealand motorcycle racer and land speed record holder. The engine of this Triumph is stock, apart from intake modifications and a Supertrapp exhaust; the real work has gone into the handling, with fork springs, shocks and a steering damper from Öhlins. Marchesini magnesium wheels are matched to a Beringer brake system, and Magura has supplied brake and clutch controls. Bike EXIF favorite LSL—no mean tuners themselves—have provided the bars, footrests and headlight, and there’s also a smattering of Rizoma parts. The result is a bike born to tackle the hairpins of the Austrian alps—and look good while doing it. [Thanks to Uli Brée.]
