Tamarit Motorcycles is a Spanish custom builder and aftermarket parts manufacturer that knows a thing or two about executing over the top Triumph customizations. Whether building for general around-town riding, or serious touring, the shop is expert at their craft. Tamarit’s 2016 Bonneville T120 build known as ‘Muralla’, for example, is an adventure tourer beautifully built specifically for one marathon of a ride.

With this particular customer looking to complete the 30,000-kilometer journey from Alicante, Spain to China along the historic Silk Road in exactly thirty travel days, Tamarit had their hands full to transform the bone stock Triumph into a tour ready rig that could survive the daunting haul. The build started by removing the factory seat in favor of a proprietary ‘Ibiza’ unit, adding a classic cross-stitched pattern and a shorty rear fender for a very unique look. The original exhaust canisters were then tossed in the bin and replaced by a set of Thor megaphone style mufflers, giving the bike much needed aggressive appeal to match the rough and rugged look curated by the skid plates and brush guards added to beef up the tender spots of the British bomber. Lastly, a rear cargo rack was added to holster the twin 5-Liter fuel canisters, items necessary for the extended length of the trip, before the bike was sprayed a matte OD green and fitted with dual purpose Metzler tires, prepping the bike to feel at home in any condition it might see on its extended inaugural journey.
