CRK launches a new kit - Triumph 955ST
It’s been a little while since CRK launched a new kit but we are happy to announce that the newest kit is now in production !
Following on from the success of our Triumph T300 Series Kit which has now exceeded 200 sales around the globe we have turned our attention to the Triumph Sprint ST 955 manufactured from 1998 - 2004
We chose the Sprint as it is a superb motorcycle. MCN describe it as a better bike than the contemporary Honda VFR which is praise indeed. However a quick scan of the classified adverts will reveal that these great bikes are now available for very little cash. Find a scruffy one with some scuffs on the plastic and it can cost less than a £1000 which makes it ideal as the basis for a conversion. Spares are still readily available from Triumph or specialist breakers.
Whereas the more glamorous Daytona models of the same era are starting to become recognised as classics, the Sprint is more likely to remain at sensible prices for those looking to build something themselves.
We have been working on the kit in our spare time for about a year now, considering various options for styling. The final choice being “Retro Racer” to give the bike a classic set of lines and a styling nod toward the great racing bikes of the 70’s. The bike is not meant to be a replica, instead it offers the builder the basis to create their own take on the theme by mixing colours and components.
The donor bike has a bolted subframe as standard so there is no cutting or welding required for the conversion. The original fuel tank and air box are retained which makes tuning the fuel injection much easier.
CRK kits are all designed to allow anyone with a shed or garage and some standard tools to build themselves a great , built not bought special. We have had some customers with zero experience who actually had to go out and buy a set of spanners complete their bikes. We also have customers who are more seasoned builders who have taken the CRK parts unpainted and then developed their own additions by fabricating custom side panels, exhaust systems, body panels etc.
As with our other kit bikes the conversion will be broken down into modules that can be purchased individually or as a complete kit. We are staring with the Subframe Module which will be available from May 2019 along with instrument cluster, handlebars and seat module. Each module will include detailed instructions to help ensure a great result.
