This particular bike is production number 665 of the 1,000 made.
Mickey Cohen Motorsports, a long-time Triumph race and performance shop once named “Tuner of the Year” by AMA Pro Racing, built this bike to be even rarer for the Tony Hawk Foundation by giving it the full café racer treatment.

Tony Hawk Foundation
A charitable, non-profit organization, the Tony Hawk Foundation was established in 2002 by its namesake, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, to promote and provide funds for high-quality public skateparks in low-income areas throughout the United States that promote healthy, active lifestyles. Since then, the Foundation has awarded over $4.4-million to 529 communities in all 50 states, and has provided critical technical assistance to skatepark projects throughout the world. The Foundation focuses on working with local officials and grassroots, community-based organizations that plan to hire designers and contractors with strong experience designing and building skateparks.
The Tony Hawk Foundation was established by a gift from Tony Hawk. Its directors raise additional funds through events, industry donations, and continuing contributions from Tony and other entities. In addition to skateparks, the Foundation also makes donations to other children-related charities, as chosen by its Board of Directors.
