Triumph Street Twin Comeback Special’s story
Comeback special was our first project up to date based on a Street Twin. It was the first time that a client asked for a Triumph Street Twin makeover. Until this summer, we had only dealt with works based on the previously known Bonneville 900 and all its range, Thruxton 900 and Scrambler 900. Once Triumph Motorcycles added the new water cooled models on 2016, we were forced to introduce new parts for its new range of motorcycles.
At the beginning of the year, we introduced our first makeovers for the models mentioned, it was our first Bonneville model T120-based work: MURALLA, and YUNKE. Both of them triggered the development of a wide range of parts for that model.
Afterwards, two more clientes arrived with BABIECA and SOMBRA, both Thruxton models: a 1200 and a 1200R. We kept expanding our parts range for that model, which we didn’t have any part created so far.
By the time a client requested a makeover of his Street Twin motorcycle, a little trouble arisen, because we didn’t have any parts developed for the most affordable and best-selling motorcycle of the range, the “Street Twin”. The Triumph Street Twin was nothing but a challenge for us, because is prone to “being cooked in the oven” second to none.
