2014 Triumph Thruxton by Icon 1000

The crew over at Icon 1000 not only works on bikes like this Triumph Thruxton you see before you but is also a one-stop-shop for everything gear related. It’s a biker’s paradise, complete with after-market custom builds and everyday gear for the daily rider. And this particular build, dubbed the fantastic Three Martini Lunch, is one beauty in particular that caught our eye.

To get things started, the Portland, Oregon crew wanted to use the bike to pay tribute to vintage road racers, which is probably why they decided upon a Verdoro Green paint job, used previously by General Motors in the 1960s. It also features a fresh set of brakes from EBC and a single-sided suspension with a single Nitron shock. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a vintage tribute without a set of Avon tires wrapped around a pair of ’70s style Kawasaki KZ1000 rims. The tank was also modded out to make room for the exhaust that now runs atop the engine and the headlight is an old fog light that used to run on Northwest logging trucks. The end result is a cafe racer that’s streamlined in appearance and vintage enough to please a wide array of motorcycle fanatics, us included.
