Belharra is one of those projects that the process and conceiving is worthy to be told because all the anecdotes and people involved on it. Beyond the regular call of a guy who lives near and want to modify his Triumph by purchasing some parts and in the end he decides to begin a full project with us, the Belharra project was beginning to be forged even before the owner was aware of Tamarit Motorcycles existence.
During a cold winter morning, a pair of french gentlemen showed up in our TMRT showroom. Without a heads up or calling of any kind, this guys decided to visit us since they were classic motorcycle enthusiasts and they were actually doing some tourism around the area ( February, what a season to visit Spain ). They were welcomed by many members of the staff and from the very beginning we noticed that there were no regular passers-by that come to buy a short or a hat. Only a few minutes after coffees were on the table and Quique dragged Jose Antonio to translate a cross talk in “frank-english” about Triumph mods, fuel tank casing moulds, builders, designs, carbon plates and other concepts from the classic motorcycle community. Both of them were experienced riders and shared our passion for the classic motorcycle collective, and above all, the Triumph bikes (actually, each of them had one). It was a pleasure and a truly oasis in the middle of a dull office morning, which ended up in a few boutique purchases and an special order: a Dirt Track seat made by Tamarit for the Triumph Scrambler of one of them, because he was in the middle of his motorcycle build. Once the contact was made, we farewell each other with “see you soon”, since both parts knew that eventually our paths would cross again in the future by means of a Triumph makeover project.
