Tamarit Motorcycles has enough parts in its catalog to transform a stock Triumph Thruxton into a passable café racer, with minimal fuss. But the Spanish workshop doesn’t just produce swish aftermarket parts. They also build an inordinate amount of custom Triumph modern classics each year—some of which require a more complex approach than their numerous plug-and-play options offer.
This alluring Triumph Thruxton café racer is Tamarit’s latest one-off special. It might feel strangely familiar to regular Bike EXIF readers, because it echoes some of the shop’s best builds. Tamarit’s client had referenced their ‘Jade,’ ‘Helios,’ and ‘Gullwing’ café racers as his favorites, so the team’s challenge was to cherry-pick the best elements from each and remix them to create something fresh.
Tamarit used a carbureted Triumph Thruxton 900 as a base for the project, but the only recognizable parts left are the fuel tank and engine—and even those have been fettled.
Much work went into getting the Thruxton’s stance and proportions just right, which meant changes to the frame, suspension, and wheels. Tamarit lowered the Thruxton’s front forks, and installed their spring-style upper fork ‘shrouds.’ CNC-machined yokes hold the forks in place, with an abbreviated fender sitting lower down.
