To create a more leaner cafe racer, Federal Moto completely stripped down the GT, removed the subframe, the twin shocks, gas tank and side covers along with electrical tray and battery. A Triumph Speed Triple monoshock holds the new sub frame together with the old swingarm. A new saddle, upholstered in full-grain leather, also houses LED taillight.
