The golden dream

During the 2018 summer’s end, someone from the United States wrote us an email about his interest in a motorcycle project. As usual, we called the client right away according to the Tamarit Motorcycle procedures.

Just as a musician who realizes that his work is getting popular when he or she stares at the public and doesn’t recognise any face, a business is a true one when not only friends, family and acquaintances are the ones who come to your place. As Tamarit Motorcycles was developing their presence on the Internet and social media, several clients started to crop up and contact us to talk about exclusive works on Triumphs, even from other countries like France, Italy and Belgium.

As we said before, the United States is basically the golden dream of any motorcycle builder professional, since the summit of this collective is exporting a full motorcycle job to the other side of the Pond.

We were very thrilled about the idea of working on a motorcycle with barely any regulation to follow, since United States is somehow more relaxed regarding this issue and you can add any item that you consider to be aesthetic (you could even set a sword as a battering ram embed between the forks and no one would say a thing), however, here in Spain we live under the yoke of the strict government regulations, same way as other european countries.

A Scrambler pure and simple

After a few calls between business and client talking about the motorcycle project, the idea started to be shaped and take some solid foundations, and Tamarit and the owner of the project later known as Appalachia, Félix, met in Madrid a few weeks after. Despite the fact that Felix actually lives in North America, he travels to Spain twice or three times a year for business, and made the most of one of those trips to speak face to face with the team that would build the motorcycle of his dreams. After putting some ideas in common about estimates and designs, a few days after the handshake the carburetor Scrambler owned by Felix set course to Valencia’s port, where it would be taken to Tamarit headquarters located in Elche.

It was truly a pleasure meeting Félix, not only because he’s a client (we have a lot of clients and we try to treat them as best as possible) but also because his approachability and naturalness, and he connected almost instantly with the Tamarit Team feeling something special. Fate sometimes really likes to have a laugh, and despite having the opportunity of doing something really out of the ordinary, since no examination or regulation shall be passed, it wasn’t like that, because Felix wanted a motorcycle that could easily be riding on Spanish streets. He wanted an scrambler pure and simple, and Tamarit was so glad to project and create his idea.

A risky bet

Talking about the parts that would modify Felix Scrambler, the rear part was completed with the Tramontana kit, that resulted to be a great addition on previous Scrambler style projects such as Niza, but this time the usual diamond stitched would be changed for stripe stitches, as well as a white edge on the border of the seat upholstery. Parts and irons that would be installed on the bike would be our new design chaincover, the footrests and the hummer sump guard (essential for an air-cooled scrambler project).

About the paintwork, it was a risky bet but with a great result, a combination of shiny and fresh colors such as white and yellow, that combined perfectly with the Tamarit’s speciality: the metal finish.

Since the owner of the bike couldn’t be present during the time of finishing the bike, unfortunately we decided to not hold a showcase party so, right after the motorcycle was finished, it was wrapped and packed inside the protective wooden case and sent back to the United States. As an anecdote, we had time for an action photoshoot with the bike speeding up from one place to another lifting some dirt, instead of the normal steady pictures, we had several pics that turned out to be great, hope you like them!
