Juna’s story

The story to tell today, is about a very special bike to us. It’s true that all the bikes we make are special for the Tamarit Crew, but this one, because its emotional grounding and foundations it could be placed two steps above the rest, since its the first of our creations that comes back to our workshop to be modified again. And the bike to work with was the one and only Thruxt8n, Tamarit’s prime opera, the motorcycle which 6 years ago started everything we know today as Tamarit Motorcycles.

Talking about this bike, I would like to speak not as Tamarit Motorcycles, but on a personal basis. Tamarit Motorcycles is lucky somehow, by not having (yet) an amount of work that still permits not making projects mechanically and on a soulless way. Despite we’ve made more than 30 projects so far, we still get involved at 100% with our projects, applying on every part installed, every coloured line drawn our feelings and emotions along with the client. That’s why each motorcycle that comes out from our garage becomes a friend, something ours, a travelling companion due the long time spent together and the ups and downs that leaves behind, and I say behind, cause most of our motorcycles we create leave for good, saying goodbye to them being aware that we will never see each other again, apart from a few exceptions. Maybe you will think that is overused catchphrase, but for me, those motorcycles are my children, my legacy, and beyond the money issue and the economic reasons we work for, for me, the greatest reward I could get is the smile that appears on our clients face, when the time for unveiling their dream bike comes, surrounded by relatives and friends.

This happiness, excitement and joy overflow is one of the matters that pushes me to top each bike we make, to keep striving for making that unveiling always a smile-maker.

Toni Gandia appears again on the Tamarit stage, he was the one who bought Thruxt8n to Quique a few years ago and now, like coming back home for Christmas, brought Thruxt8n back to our workshop in order to perform a full makeover. The bike really needed a paint job, since after a couple years travelling and commuting between cities for laboral reasons, a few falls and quite a long time stored in a garage at Málaga, Thruxt8n desperately needed our healing hands.

Since the connection between Tamarit and Toni has been always more than fluid, the ideas were clear from both sides: a Thruxton Café Racer style, a shiny colour and named after Toni’s Mother, JUNA.

Among all the pieces installed, the ones that stood out were the new side covers, the ¾ headlight lamp and it’s adapted nose fairing. Nevertheless, most of the works were focused on hardware restoration, because after some years being barely used, Thruxt8n had deteriorated significantly at certain parts. That’s why we had to change tyres, chain, filters and oil, inner tubes and some spokes. In addition, a few ideas from previous designs were included, such as the oval shaped plate fixed to the cowl, a wonderful feature included in other projects like Black Moustache and Black Thunder.

The predominant colour should be gold yellow by petition of the client, and over a shiny black base, that colour runs along all the motorcycle through wide stripes, where new designs and logos for Tamarit, Triumph and June were included.

Simply spoken, this bike is our first-born, the corner stone, a beautiful way of closing a wonderful cycle that after so many years and so many bikes transformed and parts sold all over the world leaves a wonderful sight to look behind. All for making the client’s motorcycle a tailor-made haven. To all of them, thank you very much.

¿Interested in Juna?

This bike is one of the many projects that our clients tasked to us. Tamarit Motorcycles usually works based on 3 project models: The first one, the client sends his Triumph to our workshop to be modified as desired. The second, Tamarit buys and modifies the motorcycle under client’s request and desires. And finally, the client purchases an stock motorcycle, a finished project already modified.
