Tamarit Motorcycles has three types of situations that could happen when a project lands on our table. The first one is the most common one, when the owner of a Triumph Modern Classic compatible with our parts range decides to trust us his motorcycle makeover. Other situation is the person, who doesn’t own a bike, comes to us to begin a project from scratch and Tamarit Motorcycles is in charge of everything, we get the bike and we begin with the makeover. And finally, the project that Tamarit begins with no client at all, just for the sake of imagination, a project without any guideline except our pure inspiration. Those kind of projects are on sale when they’re finished and then we are ready for the next one. Mr. Kevin was the third situation, since we always wanted to make a unique motorcycle, completely following our desires and making the most of the motorcycle, to introduce a few new parts like the belly pan and the nose fairing.
The project was based on a Triumph Thruxton Cafe Racer, and we definitely wanted her to be a Café Racer, but not a simple one, a Café Racer out of the ordinary and that would impress everyone because of the inclusion of diverse elements prone to appear at other motorcycle concepts. We knew from the very beginning that reaction among the purists of the collective would be of oddness or even rejection at some point, since a Café Racer pure of essence would never be equipped with dirt track knobbies, or feature the exhaust system on such a high setup scrambler style. Precisely, that was all this project about, about doing something that we personally would love, rising up against the imposed canon on a free manner without having to follow the roleplay imposed by society.
