Amidst a field of great builders and stiff competition, our Motoworks Chicago team came out on top in the Iron Moto Challenge, put on by British Customs, ICON 1000 and Raen Optics. You’ve seen the bike, and we’ve shared the backstory. Now it’s time to say thank you.

Thank you to everyone who helped us build the most bitchin’ Triumph Speedmaster to ever roll on two wheels! But let’s get more specific.

Thank you to everyone who came to Motoblot to cheer us on!

Thank you to our crew here at Motoworks who did the hard work of putting the prelims for this machine together on such a tight time line!

Thank you to Jayme Schmidt of Blue Moon Customs for such killer paint work!

Thank you to the crew at Triumph, British Customs, ICON 1000, Raen Optics and Motoblot for putting this thing on!

Most of all, thank you to all of you who voted for our creation online. Our bike won pretty handily up against some beautiful bikes.


Did you miss out on the action? That’s alright, you can learn all about the bike we built here. You can also go behind the scenes on the build here. Then, check out this great profile BC did on our own Johnny Scheff — which even gives a little bit of Motoworks history.

Best of all, swing by the shop and have a look at “Calle Maton” for yourself. The photos don’t do the paint justice. Come check out the details and see just how cool a Triumph Speedmaster can really be.
