Keep it in proportion

To be honest, it's not often I see Triumph chops that have kept their original tanks but still look good. But I think John Root's bike does. The minimalism of the back end and space around that oil tank somehow work with the chunkiness of the Triumph tank and headlight, and your eye doesn't get hooked up on anything as it follows the contours of the bike.

Nice.

Hopefully we'll be bringing you more on this New Mexico beauty soon.
