2007 Triumph Thruxton 900i by DMOL

With a name like “Up Yours Copper” we’re sure this bike was not an easy build. Death Machines of London builds bespoke motorcycles that push the limit on design and quality. Looking like a steampunk version of a Thruxton 900i, this build not only looks one of a kind but pays a bit of tribute to one of America’s most eccentric authors: Hunter S. Thompson.

The bike, among plenty of other painstaking upgrades and modifications, features a freshly finished fuel tank and aero-style filler featuring the Hunter S. Thompson quote: “Faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death,” engraved on a brass plate. It’s a line that suits the build and the company’s origin particularly well, playing into the irrational nature of thrill-seeking among riders. In addition, the UYC includes a beluga-black frame, modified rear, and re-worked engine complete with gas-flowed cylinder head and custom exhaust system. Both Avon Trail Rider tires are wrapped around copper electroplated rims and features a custom-made speedometer, a 7” mil-spec LED headlamp, and a hand-carved American Walnut seat adding to the bike’s rough charm. It’s a unique build, to say the least. Even more intriguing, Death Machines of London will build you one as well if you possess such as death wish.
