2017 "Dirty Pigeon" 1971 Triumph TR6
Built around a 1971 Triumph TR6 engine, the barebones, elegantly reductive chassis of the
“Dirty Pigeon” took top honors at the annual Mooneyes Custom show in Yokohama in
December 2017. It is the premier bike from the premier custom motorcycle show in Japan,
and its success instantly amplified Heiwa’s visibility outside builder Kengo Kimura’s home
country. Its perfected style complements its tightly conceived construction, both of which
contribute to its popularity as much as the accolades the “Dirty Pigeon” has received.
