When a new project begins in the Tamarit workshops, we get a chance not only of creating a new motorcycle and providing the bike of their dreams to our clients, but also to establish certain ties with a person who in the end, sometimes ends up being your friend. For many people the word “friend” could mean a lot, but honestly, is such an amount of contacts and heads up, calls and hundreds of text messages while the project is being developed that when the actual project is delivered we feel that more time has passed than truly had and that we know that person for long time. That’s why we love our projects, we can see and capture our client’s personality on their motorcycles.
After almost 40 projects we’ve encountered all kind of clients, some of them fickler and more insecure, and some others with hard-as-a-rock ideas. This time, Jorge (or Mr. Rodrigo as it was dearly nicknamed when this project took off) was the strong-willed type, so despite we could change or improve some aspects from his original idea, he was an individual with the ideas quite clear.
We always say that our clients never fail to surprise us from time to time, and this project was no exception, since it was triggered from a very rare circumstance, but somehow beautiful : Jorge will be married soon and his fiancé, Mary, decided to give him as a marriage proposal present a motorcycle. On top of that, Mary couldn’t get enough with a regular and stock motorcycle, taking into account how high were the reasons and matters, she decided to go for something much more special and aimed for his fiancee dream motorcycle: a Modern Classic Triumph modified 100% according to his desires. When we got Jorge’s call to tell us about the situation and to task us the project, all of us wanted to have a girlfriend like Mary!
