This Lockhart Philips USA Triumph Turbo project bike was commissioned by Triumph America and Lockhart-Philips in 2002. The bike was custom built from a new frame to maximize performance in all areas of handling, acceleration and braking. The end result is astounding. This Turbo Triumph was featured in the March 2002 Cycle World magazine and developed a worldwide following. It has been on display at the Luguna Seca Moto GP, Indy Trade Show and many California Sportbike events. The bike has 4360 careful miles and has been ridden by Dan Gurney, Brian Catterson, Wendell Phillips (of Lockhart-Phillips) and Triumph executives. The incredible paint design and application was done by well known California Moto-artist Aaron Hager, son of rock legend Sammy Hagar. The bike has the best of everything: Phillips enlisted Will Tate of the California Speed Shop to co-ordinate the build. Tate brought in Brian Olson of Turbo Connection for the turbo-charge engineering and components; the custom Turbo Connection exhaust is finished off with a very cool custom tri-tip end cap. Suspension was improved with a single sided swing arm, four-point shock linkage, triple-clamps and rear sets from Attack Racing based on their experience racing Daytona’s in AMA Pro Series. Penske shock, RaceTech modified fork with Progressive springs, ultra light Marvic Penta magnesium wheels, Brembo front brakes, custom billet parts and every carbon-fiber component from the Lockhart-Phillips Catalog.
