Guildford’s story:

At the beginning of the year, a close friend of us called because he wanted to introduce us a group of individuals who had a brand going on, we didn’t know the reason nor the meaning, but we quickly arranged a meeting the very same evening at our place. To our surprise, that group of gentlemen were the boys from Pompei, a brand we already knew for good and for quite a long time. The reason of the meaning is not important on this issue, and we welcomed the four owners of the company at TMRT Headquarters and among them there was Cosme, the designer. We got along pretty well and quickly with him and we kept contact after the meeting. Cosme was interested on buying a motorcycle but didn’t know which one. He was hesitating between a custom makeover or a brand new Yamaha (obviously there’s no comparison) and after a few calls and meetings we convinced Cosme to get the right choice ( a Triumph ).

A couple of months after, while introducing a motorcycle in Madrid (the Titán project), we met Cosme, only to discover that he got a new job as a designer for “El Ganso”, which many of you would ring a bell since it was one of the brands involved in the collaboration project along with Tamarit , Hawkers and El Ganso: Hawkers One.

Regarding Cosme we had to search for a bike around the second hand market because he didn’t have a bike during that moment, but it couldn’t be a Thruxton 1200 or a T120 (the ones we would’ve liked to work with) but a powered-down bike since he didn’t have the proper license. Nevertheless, despite that little issue, he had a very clear idea about what he wanted, a comfortable and urban ride, and above all, a classic look.

After exchanging dozens of ideas and designs between office and client, Cosme finally decided de the design of the project to carry. It’s true that is extremely easy to choose between colours, shapes and designs if they are for other person, but when it comes to choose something for yourself (considering that it’s going to be your own motorcycle) , things get really tricky because it’s definitely not like going to the Authorized Car Dealer and choosing between 4 or 5 colours available. On Tamarit projects you have at your disposal every color on earth available so, the more you have to choose, the bigger gets the problem!

This bike is one of the many projects that our clients tasked to us. Tamarit Motorcycles usually works based on 3 project models: The first one, the client sends his Triumph to our workshop to be modified as desired. The second, Tamarit buys and modifies the motorcycle under client’s request and desires. And finally, the client purchases an stock motorcycle, a finished project already modified.
