Custom Motorbike builder Lucas Joyner of The Factory Metal Works (TFMW) and his team have rolled out a 1964 custom Triumph 650 called The 9 O’clock Gun for actor Ryan Reynolds.
I am sure you all know who Ryan Reynolds is, for those who don’t… You can see Ryan Reynolds appearing in Safe house with Denzel Washington, The Proposal, The Change-Up, Marvals Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine to name a few!
I’m beginning to see a pattern here with The Factory Metal Works delivering another custom to a celebrity client, remember last weeks custom Triumph T100 built for Rocker Butch Walker? Clearly Lucas and co are right on the money with these builds, a young workshop which I imagine will only go from strength to strength.
With Ryan being Canadian the name originated from The 9 O’Clock Gun cannon located in Vancouver, British Columbia which is shot every night at 9pm.
Ryan Reynolds custom bike features a 1964 Triumph 650 unit motor, which is wrapped around a The Factory Metal Works one-off custom frame with 5-inch stretch and 3-inch drop. There is also a late 60’s front fork section which was shaved and lowered. The Factory Metal Works have super narrowed the top frame section with duplex style front Eurostyle 7/8 bars. At the front this custom Triumph 650 features a 21-inch chrome front wheel with Tiger Cub brake while 18-inch rear is fitted with a pre 70’s Triumph brake set up. The wheels are wrapped in classic looking Avon 21-inch front and Firestone rear tires.
The fabrication work includes an original 60’s Wassell banana tank with custom molding and ribs with BSA push pull petcocks. A Barons speed shop rear custom mudguard, TFMW rear sissy bar and a full chrome custom TFMW oil tank. Other features include a custom riged vintage brown TFMW banana style seat and super kick ripple drag pipes in full chrome.
There are no questions about The Factory Metal Works craftsmanship; Lucas Joyner is the artist to feed the custom flavors to Hollywood and beyond!
