Triumph Thruxton Lady Speed By Macco Motors

We always get excited whenever Spanish bike outfitter Macco Motors releases a new build, especially when it’s of the traditional and agile cafe racer persuasion. So when Jose and Tito of Macco Motors put together this masterpiece, dubbed “Lady Speed,” covering it was a no brainer. And just like any other Macco Motors build, it’s the subtle class of the design that resonates quite well with the anxious, small stature the cafe racer.

For the build, Jose and Tito used a stripped down 2007 Thruxton and immediately began building a custom tail section made from fiberglass with a diamond-stitched saddle, mounted to Lady Speed’s re-constructed subframe. The ignition was relocated as well in order to make room for a yellow Bates-style headlight, complemented by a minimalist speedometer, upgraded levers, and Biltwell Thruster grips.

To offset the less than the desirable Triumph stock suspension the fellas gave Lady Speed a set of Hagon progressive springs and Hagon Nitro shocks while a Metzeler Tourance tire in the rear and a Dunlop F20 in the front wrap around black powder coated rims stainless spokes. The combination gives the bike a modern look with enhanced traction on wet roads. Everything is then adorned in an elegant flat black and matte green paint job. Yet another success from the Spanish builders.[H/T: The Bike Shed]
