We have called this custom bike Triumph Scrambler “Thruxton”, because the transformation or modification of this Triumph bike has not been done with a Bonneville or Scrambler base … A Triumph Thruxton has been customized.
It is true that the result of this scrambler modification can be achieved with the Triumph Bonneville; but on that occasion Fran Manen (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms) has chosen a model that originally is the opposite: a cafe racer since it leaves the factory…. a 2006 Thruxton 900 carburetion.
LDK has carried out the transformation of motorcycles like this on numerous occasions in its Triumph modification and customization workshop in Spain and especially in Miami. This scrambler in particular, it has been modified in our cafe racer workshop in Malaga.
Customizing the Triumph Scrambler “Thruxton”
The first thing was to disassemble this cafe racer bike to start modifying the subframe, giving it more height and adding some scrambler-style tires. Note that the front wheel has been changed to a 19-inch model to give it a more Street Tracker look.
After finishing with the subframe and seat, a Biltwell handlebar has been installed and a Motogadget Tiny odometer has been installed, accompanied by adjustable levers, biltwell grips and other details up front.
The original manifolds have been protected with anti-heat tape for exhausts, an aluminum skid plate for Triumph has been installed and a license plate holder with side arm has been manufactured.
The painting of this Triumph scrambler has been very simple, since the whole bike has been painted in matt black, except for the fuel tank that has been painted in dark pearl blue.
The seat, which has been manufactured at Lord Drake Kustoms, has been upholstered with brown leather and the wheels and other parts have been treated with electrostatic oven powder paintby the metalcolors company.
Finally, all the reforms carried out in this motorcycle customization work have been legalized with our own Homologation for motorcycles.
