Café racer devotees, hold onto your hats as we’ve just finished one hell of a custom build! Using a Triumph Thruxton as our canvas and Café racer models as inspiration, our team have created a one of one build that is a real head turner. The Bike Shed gave us the perfect excuse to produce this build as they rolled out one mega cool new event, the Cafe Racer Cup, so we decided to get our Cafe Racer customization on!
As standard, the Thruxton offers plenty of style and performance, but we wanted to put our own custom spin on the bike and apply our vision of what this model is capable of becoming.
From the first glance, this Triumph catches the eye with its stand-out blue tone, black detailing and of course, the logo that Triumph Motorcycles used between 1907 and 1914. With this custom paint scheme applied by Image Design Customs, the exhaust was next for a unique twist. To compliment this build and keep within the theme, we opted for bespoke RaceFit pipes, a custom made front headlight grill and the genuine Triumph Café Racer fairing - all features that are synonymous with the Café Racer style which really allows the rider to ‘tuck in’.
As Triumph Motorcycles make customisation very easy on their motorcycles - with luxury to match, we added several of their genuine parts to make this build as spectacular as it is and a real showcase of how genuine parts can really transform a standard model. So to name a few, we have used; Triumph bar end mirrors, machined aluminium rider foot pegs and reservoir cap, barrel grips, seat cowl, front fork brace, clutch and brake levers and paddock stand bobbins.
As with any truly spectacular custom build, this is the first and last to be built in this style and although history behind this style of motorcycle is for quick rides between Cafes, riders of this bike will certainly want to be going the long way round, despite the destination!
