Check out This Custom Triumph Made for David Beckham
Tie-ins between vehicles and celebrities can have mixed results. Xzibit as the host of “Pimp My Ride” was a great thing. Some cars customized for Chris Brown or Justing Bieber are not. Thankfully, we have this incredible example of such synergy done right, in the form of this custom Triumph, tailored for David Beckham. You know Beckham as the shirtless, tattooed guy who does cologne ads and occasionally plays soccer. Together with wife Victoria, they have a combined net worth of $770 million, and a heck of a lot of pop-culture clout. It is why Land Rover called on Victoria to help style the Range Rover Evoque, and likely why her husband was fashioned a custom motorcycle. RELATED: See images of the 1951 Triumph Speed Twin
According to the British Customs blog, the bike is called the DBSC, and is based on a Triumph Bonneville motorcycle, with a serious touch of vintage. It features burnished drag pipes, a distressed leather seat, and faded paint for the gas tank and fenders. It looks like something out or an old photo.

Though aesthetically old-school, the DBSC has some fully modern features, namely a Motorgadget mini digital gauge cluster. It has basic features like speedometer, tachometer, trip computer and travel time. It also has an adjustable rev-limit feature so you can be signaled when it is time to shift.
That gauge system blends seamlessly into the design of the DBSC, keeping the modern feature hidden among the vintage aesthetic. No word on pricing or availability of such a bike, but as we always say…if you have to ask, you probably can't afford it.
