The classic and the urban

Not all projects come to our facilities from far away, there are times when we get transformations from neighboring places to our facilities. This is the case of Aritz, who contacted us in September from a town very close to our headquarters, with the idea of being the lucky owner of the next TMRT workshop bike.

Aritz wanted a radical change for his Triumph Thruxton 1200R, but did not know how he should do it to get the best result on the bike he already had. Something that was clear from the beginning, was the fact that he didn't want to make his fairing look like a Cafe Racer, with such a purist esthetic canon.

Unique projects and clients

When someone comes to us who wants to do a conversion on their motorcycle, there can be different situations.

There are some clients who are very clear about what they want and have even seen our parts catalog and other transformations that we have done, so they know exactly how they want to go about the conversion. Another possibility is that the person has seen a motorcycle, either on the internet or through an acquaintance and wants to recreate that particular model.

Finally, as in this case, there are other clients who are open to more special changes and have an idea of something they like and want to get but are not closed to improvements that we can propose.

Any of these aspects has always ended with a happy and satisfied owner with their transformation, so we are happy to accept new challenges and continue to make the dreams of many bikers come true.

A more urban look

As in the procedure of all the transformations, we kept in touch with our client and exchanged sketches both manually made and rendered for a more realistic and detailed finish. Different sketches of possible designs were made and after several proposals, we came to the idea of creating a Cafe Racer but with a more urban look, avoiding the original handlebars and fairing. Once everything was put together and with the sketches accepted, we stepped on the gas to make Aritz's dream come true.

A new challenge

From the workshop, we were impatiently awaiting the arrival of the bike that would become project # 55 with the name of Lauritz and would allow us to create a Cafe Racer totally different from what we had done before. To make the conversion of the bike keeping the chosen style but respecting the urban line that we wanted to achieve, was not easy but from Tamarit we had everything ready to face this new challenge.

Black and satiny

Once the bike arrived to our place, first thing to do was painting in satin black parts such as rims, swingarms, triple trees and engine covers. Other of the items added was the Mónaco seat, the chaincover and the side covers named Dakota, that would provide this much more sporty look.

Tamarit parts

In the composition of Lauritz we can highlight pieces such as the front fairing "Dakar" that was completely adapted both headlight grid and four line in a personalized way, its installation was done with the idea of enhancing the look of a more urban trend that we wanted to achieve.

We can also appreciate the exclusive incorporation of the new front fender "New Little Bastard" for Thruxton 1200R, this is the first project in which we incorporate this piece.

Another of the modifications that was made is the installation of the Tamarit elimination kit for the rear fender that includes the metal bracket to adapt the license plate and turning signals, catadioptric and LED brake light and position light. To complete the project, technological elements such as front and rear turn signals from the German brand Motogadget have been included.

A soul of its own

All projects have "something" that makes them special, that makes them stand out and gives them a soul of their own. In the case of Lauritz, the most representative piece are the original Tiger exhausts of the Italian brand ZARD, designed mainly for the Street Scrambler. These exhausts have been adapted for the Thruxton 1200R of project #55 and significantly add that urban vibe that will become the identifying mark.

These exhausts are not manufactured by TMRT but they are available in our online store, although they must be adapted for a bike other than a Street Scrambler. Finally, thanks to the high position of the Tiger exhausts, it has been possible to place the "Himalaya" exhaust cover that prepares the bike for any surface and gives the final touch to turn it into a true urban Cafe Racer.

Towards new limits

Each new project that arrives at our facilities is unique, so we let ourselves be carried away by new ideas that transport us to new limits. It seems difficult that after more than 100 motorcycles, we can still continue to surprise with totally exclusive designs that, without a doubt, are surpassed one after another.
