The Tamarit family

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 kinds 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 the fact that we could change or improve some aspects from his original idea, he was an individual with the ideas quite clear.

Wedding gift

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 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's 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 with the project, all of us wanted to have a girlfriend like Mary!

As said before, Jorge had a very accurate idea of what he wanted to obtain from a Tamarit Motorcycles project, and through some internet pictures taken as an inspiration, and step by step we approached what Jorge wanted exactly. From his original idea we could agree on some light modifications and improvements that according to our criteria were necessary. After several contacts via email and phone, we finally met in Madrid in order to do all the paperwork and finally begin with the project.

Thruxton carburetor

The bike chosen for this makeover, after several projects based on Triumph Bonneville (Barracuda, D. Franklin and Matricer), it was a Triumph Thruxton Carb air-cooled to our relief, which was 12 years old actually. Despite the huge resistance and reliability of the Triumph Machinery, we decided to heal up all the paint and the rest of the elements of the whole engine, as well as tuning the motorcycle up completely. In order to get exactly what the client wanted, we had to cut the lower frame and to shape a seat from scratch, which would be 100% unique for this project.

Other parts and details that would be created in stainless steel were the front fender and the valve covers, which resulted in an awesome combination with the prevailing black color of the whole project which is also present on the frame and engine.

The paint job was quite plain to be honest, the client wanted a rigorous matt black all along the motorcycle, except the fuel tank logo, which was brass treated.

Presentation in Madrid

On this occasion the Tamarit team was en route to Madrid, where the presentation party of this project, TITAN, would be held. Once the trailer was loaded and in the middle of the A-31 towards Madrid, we saw to the left and right great landscapes where the snow was accumulating little by little. Perhaps we sinned with enthusiasm (understandable in a way coming from creatures of the coast like us), but neither short nor lazy we got off where best we could and we lowered the TITAN of the trailer to hunt some snapshots with the added value of snow. The problem is that this "added value" was perhaps too much, and what were a few snowflakes as a curiosity, became practically a full-fledged blizzard, and we could barely stand a few minutes in the open with what was falling.

After that icy anecdote, the journey to Irons Cafe Racer (the place where the party would happen) passed by with no major trouble. We even had time to stop by the most iconic places of Madrid in order to get wonderful shots. Back to the introduction party, the Irons Cafe Racer shop turned out to be tiny for the number of people attending the event, with everyone crowded together all around the unveiled bike worked by Tamarit Motorcycles.

In the middle of everything, there was one of the Tamarit founders, Quique, who acted as the MC. Equipped with a hands-free microphone, truly enjoyed the moment by talking to the audience about who Tamarit Motorcycles were, about the project and the works that the bike required. Just next to him was Titán’s owner, who was almost stupefied when the time for unveiling his wedding gift came.
