Christophe Poujhon spent plenty of long hours in his kitchen building his sweet and savory Triumph Daytona 675. Why not the garage? According to Christophe, his garage is too small and doesn't have electricity, so the kitchen was the next best place. Since he constructed all the carbon fiber bodywork himself he needed a proper workplace anyways. And what better place to mix the ingredients?
There are plenty of other unique conversation pieces aside from the cool hand-built carbon fiber parts that are strewn across nearly every surface that would accept them. The Beringer rotors are a one-off design that were built upon special request by the French firm for this particular bike. Another exotic upgrade is the Bodis exhaust that's straight from the German tuning company to help accentuate the triple's lovely droning tone while boosting power.
Other upgrades like Arrow rearsets and clip-ons come courtesy of Triumph's aftermarket catalogue, while Rizoma and Valter Moto round out the appearance mods for a tidy package that tastefully touches both sides of the tuning spectrum-performance and appearance.
Christophe claims it only took him six months to build his moto magnifique, which is a pretty impressive feat considering he did the bulk of the work. From the clean appearance upgrades to valuable performance mods we can't find a fault, and the fact that it was all cooked up in some dude's kitchen makes it that much tastier.

The remainder of the bike keeps a clean look, and everything that could be removed was dipped in chrome. Blue accents form a marriage of plastic to parts and help pull the entire package together. Billet grips, a molded windscreen and plenty of flashing lights finish off the surreal nightmare theme.
