Without following any guidelines

Tamarit Motorcycles uses from time to time to acquire on its own a Modern Classic Triumph motorcycle in order to transform it to our liking. And saying this we don’t want to devalue our clients, since they are the true engine and what makes the whole thing in motion. Nevertheless, after a bunch of projects with “restrained” as a keyword and always painting the motorcycle in matt black to put it another way, the Tamarit Crew gets hungry for another mischief, looking for a bike that could act as donor motorcycle and to carry out a project without following any rule but our pure inspiration and creativity.

Even though some of our clients give us some licenses when it comes to create some details of the Triumph bike project apart from the concept or main color, the “total freedom” only is achieved by starting these kind of projects, which are famous for their risky features and overall for transmitting a look that no one would ignore. Projects such as the classy Neptuno, the polemic Ronin, the law-breaking Mr. Kevin and the rogue Superstar were born from pure and frantic creativity at the Tamarit Motorcycles workshop.

Close to the Cafe Racer

Despite we knew that the bike to work with would be in the end labeled as a Cafe Racer, we wanted two main features on this project: to take some risks at details and to update the front fairing for the new generation Triumph (just like the one that appear on Yunque Project, which was only a prototype), as we did previously on our Matricer project by introducing our Dakar Front Mask. We had the classic style of D Franklin as a starting point, but adding as well some sporty details, like a fusion between the D Franklin, Babieca and Sombra projects.

The motorcycle chosen for the Carlota project was a New Generation Triumph Bonneville T120, the fourth actually to enter our workshop, after Muralla, Matricer and the twin project known as Yunque.

The first move was to cover the engine covers on a brass finish, and that brass tone led us to the main color, which was a classic beige, a color that most of us would remember featured on classic cars when we were kids.

Another source of inspiration somehow, was a tv commercial by Chanel, where a stunning Ducati appears painted in a similar color.

Beyond the front fairing

Tamarit Motorcycles has a catalog ready to equip a Bonnie T120 no matter what the concept would be, so the parts to install were numerous.

At the front, the most noticeable feature is the front fairing previously mentioned, which is possible to install along the headlight grill thanks to our Six Holes bracket. An obvious inclusion was the shortened front fender and the Clubman handlebar to keep the bike tidy and classy. At the rear all the attention goes obviously to the Jerez cowl, which combined with a 37 cm shock absorber and the twin Thor exhausts, creates a rear full of personality.

On the sides we can find the side covers for the new generation Bonnevilles known as Muralla, and a little heritage from our beloved D.FRANKLIN project: the tank knee pads matching the seat fabric.

The unveiling of this Triumph bike project was held on a date very special for Tamarit Motorcycles: the re – opening of our Bar, which has been closed for months due reasons completely beyond our control. A great night that friends and kin didn’t miss, so the roaring of the modern motorcycles in front of our local. Thank you very much for coming.
