Triumph Thruxton History

When wheels take you back to the England from the 60’s.

As some other modern classics bikes, the history of Triumph Thruxton dates back to the mid 20th century, when the mass production of bikes skyrocketed. Bikes had found their niche of users among society.

This modern classic was launched to the market as the alternative to the Bonnie, with a riding position leaning towards the fuel tank and the footpegs at the rear. Despite its discontinued production throughout the years, the current Thruxton has managed to go back to the top of the motorcycles thanks to their new sound reissues.

Due to his nature, cut out for asphalt, the best aligned style with this sports Triumph is obviously the Café Racer.

A Thruxton Café Racer is basically the perfect classic sports motorcycle, considering the different projects that can be made in this style. While some other kind of builds could be taken into account for this motorcycle, we consider the Café Racer as the best fit for the Triumph Thruxton.
