Black Thunder’s story
It is a very common trend around the urban motorcycling collective that everything blooms as the weather gets more pleasant. As the summertime approaches, who owns a motorcycle is thinking about using it more often and even to include some modification or improvement, and those who don’t own one, are directly thinking about acquiring one if the conditions and resources are met. During the summer of 2017, the Tamarit workshop activity was frantic, because indeed, the warm temperatures arrived and everyone wanted to have their Triumph motorcycles ready and shiny. That’s why we had on our workshop up to four projects in progress during that time, Rosso, Comeback Special, Barracuda and finally the bike you’re going to read about here, Black Thunder.
The origin of this project is forged on the public introductions of our previous works, which Dani, friend and client of Tamarit, attended frequently. Dani owned an splendid 2016 Triumph Bonneville, and was that pristine condition of the motorcycle the fact that made Dani hesitate about leaving the motorcycle to Tamarit Motorcycles right away.
Always escorted by his pack of friends from Elda, Dani told us on every public introduction that the next motorcycle to present would be his Bonneville. A few introductions passed by anyway until the “Black Moustache” one, that was the moment when he dropped the keys on the table and sentenced: “That’s what I want”.
