One saturday morning we got a phone call, was Manolo, who introduce himself and told us that the phone number was handed over by a close friend and client of us. He was interested in getting a motorcycle, but in that moment he had nothing in clear, neither the brand or the model, least of all the concept. We met him and explained to him the Tamarit Motorcycles concept and only a few minutes after the decision of purchasing a Triumph was already taken. Next thing to do was to choose the proper style, Scrambler or Café Racer.
After a few days, Manolo got himself straight and went for a Café Racer. First a motorcycle should be acquired , since Manolo didn’t own any. Finally a carb Triumph Thruxton 900 (all-time favourite in Tamarit Motorcycles) was the chosen one.
We have different kinds of clients: those who already own a motorcycle and want to customise it, those who don’t have a motorcycle and we search the motorcycle for him and then we begin the makeover, and last but not least those who buy a finished project, meaning a motorcycle that has been already transformed by Tamarit Motorcycles.
Manolo was one of those clients who didn’t own a motorcycle, but he decided to search the bike by himself and eventually found it in Barcelona and brought it to us to begin with the makeover process.
Two days after the purchase, the motorcycle arrived to our workshop and we put all hands on deck. It was kinda a piece of cake for us, since Manolo was infatuated but one of our creations, the Thruxton 8, and wanted something similar. Procedures were clear: strip the engine down and tune it up after, liquids and electric system check, paint job, rims, tires and built everything on.
We brought to the table a wide range of Tamarit motorcycle parts such as: the fender eliminator kit, Boludos exhausts, turning signals and holders, chain guard, sump guard, Jarama seat, headlight grill, custom numbered plate, front fender and a five holes bracket.
Regarding the paint job, we opted for a matte army green and a matte silver green which along the upholstered seat on camel colour resulted in an spectacular combination.
Once the Triumph makeover was completed, we were lucky counting with Manolo’s wife as a “partner in crime”. She took his husband out for dinner and our crew in the meantime placed the motorbike in the parking lot for his huge surprise.
