New proposals

Summer of 2017 was an arduous time for Tamarit Motorcycles. Many clients reached us to carry out the makeover of their Triumph motorcycles. At the beginning of May, Juan contacted us, who was following us through social networks and loved our workshop results. Strong-minded, hard to convince and to adopt something that would differ from his concept of what a motorcycle should look like.

Juan was infatuated by the Triumph makeovers performed so far and had a concrete idea to own a Triumph motorcycle totally different from what we have previously done.

After a few meetings with the client, we filtered Juan’s idea, but we had a quandary, until then we have only worked on Neoclassic Triumph motorcycles and through “Plug and Play” procedures, meaning only easy to set parts without soldering, cutting or drilling, something that could be undone in the future. Nevertheless, Juan wanted to cut the low-frame down, the back fender and several parts we don’t use or sell.

One step further

At that time the dilemma about transforming the exact Triumph he wanted arose, considering it was against our corporate philosophy, but at the same time was a unique chance to widen the range of brands to work with, not only Triumph.

Everything took a twist when Juan came to our shop just landed from Mallorca and showed us his request of transform the motorcycle undergoing heavy changes to the parts. Unfortunately we couldn’t give a response immediately, since the call of accepting that project was considerably big and something that would change our way of working, considering that a new line of business shall be opened.

A few weeks later and after several meetings of the Tamarit partnership, we decided to work with different brands, on the condition that the project proposed by the client would be interesting and appealing.

Juan was a client without a Triumph bike, so Tamarit had to search for a motorcycle which fit his desires and one of the premises both for the company and the client was that it had to be a carb Bonneville T100, which made the search a big deal.

As good as new

Once the motorcycle fell into our hands, the brat style project started. Juan’s ideas for the Triumph Bonneville T100 makeover were: cut the lower-frame as much as permitted by law (every motorcycle that comes out of our shop goes with the proper homologation), an exhaust totally different from what we had in stock, a 2in1 as the Bocanegra exhaust , the Boludos exhaust, a 28mm handlebar in the middle, and 22mm on the ends, leather grips, front turning signals on the end of the handlebar and not a single cable on sight, everything should be inside the handlebar. All of it involved the handlebar electric parts replacement, so we opted for the Motogadget electrical set.

An aluminum fender (both front and back) and a short seat ready for a driver and an extra passenger was also required.

The engine paint of the Triumph Bonneville wasn’t in mint condition to be honest, which is understandably taking into account that the motorcycle is 12 years old, so we opted to take the engine out to sand it down and painted it with a heat-proof coat. Engine covers were taken out as well to paint them in a chromed-matte color, a color just gorgeous.
