THE BIG CHILL Mean Machines

Built by Mean Machines in Sydney this 2008 Triumph Bonneville Cafe Racer named “Big Chill” is currently for sale. With a huge, sticky 180 tyre on the rear Mean Machines states that “this thing is a beast around corners and it is not for the faint hearted!”. Check out the video after the jump to see Big Chill in action. The Bonneville features Mean Machines own custom tail section that mimics the shape of the Bonnevilles tank perfectly. The Cafe Racer inspired 59 and the checker decals running up it’s spine are a great salute to the style that inspired this bikes build and are also an in house creation. Other Mean Machine parts on the bike that can be purchased through their website include the chain guard and those awesome sounding twin exhausts tucked away under the Bonnies belly.
