An unique collaboration

Halfway through April 2017, Alejandro Coves, in charge of the marketing & publishing area of the successful company Hawkers, contacted with Tamarit Motorcycles. 

The reason for the contact was to customize a motorcycle for that company. During that time was a huge commercial chance, working on a motorcycle for the company that only in a few years became an online market global benchmark.

The day after, the Tamarit Motorcycles crew turned up at the Hawkers office to listen to Alejandro's idea in mind. And was precisely to introduce a motorcycle symbolizing the collaboration between two brands, Hawkers and el Ganso.

All hands on deck

We just had 25 days to carry the design and makeover out. It was a close cut, but we strive to finish before the deadline. The hard part was not getting the motorcycle ready in that short period of time, but the slow pace of communication with such an enormous company, taking into account that each step should be approved by different stratums of the company and that fact slowed down the working process remarkably.

We started the project by presenting the motorcycle design, and once we got the thumbs up, the budget was approved and so the contract was signed to begin with the makeover of a Triumph Thruxton 900, the motorcycle chosen by Hawkers for the Ganso collaboration.

After several contacts with different suppliers, we found the perfect motorcycle that we were looking for. Within a day, our Tamarit Crew traveled to Salamanca to pick the Thruxton 900 up. Once the motorcycle was checked, we came back to Alicante to undergo its transformation. 

When the Thruxton 900 arrived at our headquarters, only 10 working days remained to strip the motorcycle down, receive the parts such as tires or replacement and finally make the transformation. Moreover, there wasn’t any margin of error concerning the paintjob.

Alejandro from Hawkers was pretty positive; he wanted a Cafe Racer mixture between the motorcycles Mr Kevin and Black Moustache.

More than competitive elements

The Eliminator kit of the rear fender, our Jarama seat, stainless steel chain guard, small turning signals and the astonishing Ohlins shock absorbers were featured on the back of the motorcycle.

Regarding the exhausts, Papillon was chosen (not the most comfortable, but the best looking ones). Drilled side covers and our belly pan appeared in the middle part of the motorcycle.

Some of the parts to be set on the front of the motorcycle were: short fender, a Mr. Kevin fairing, the grill, Koso speedometer and rear view mirrors on the grips.

About the mechanical part of the job there were tasks to complete as well: relocation of the ignition key switch, electrical system simplification, tune the engine up and liquids and filters change due the engine was previously dismantled to be painted.
