Brian Wilcher's Centennial T100
Yes, that's her name, and ain't she purty? She started out as a brand-spankin' new Centennial T100, but as you can see I've beautified her a bit since she came into my life. I started by having her fenders painted to match her tank (the solid silver did NOT do her justice!), then swapped out her stock bars for some Bellacorse Supers with white grips to try to capture the look of the gray ones Triumph used on the '66 Bonnie. Napoleon bar end mirrors replaced the Mickey Mouse ears. Next, Dunlop GT501's replaced her crappy stock dancing shoes. Since then she's had her mufflers swapped out for a pair of British Customs Predators, her stock suspension ditched for a set of Ikon's on the rear and Hagon fork springs up front, and her stock front rotor tossed for an EBC floating disk with EBC pads front and rear. Her airbox has had the snorkle and restrictor plate removed, and her carbs have Thruxton needle jets (no more dead spots!). The airbox mod's + the Thruxton needles + the Predators + 42's and 122's = she pulls like a train and runs like a scalded cat! Big thanks to Carlos, Barney, and Mike Z. for helping me work on her. Down the line I plan to pretty her up even more -- inside and out -- but even now she gets plenty of attention. Alright, I'll say it: I love Lucy!
