Established only a few years ago in 2015, Tamarit Motorcycles has quickly garnered a reputation as one of the world’s premier customizers of modern Triumph bikes, with the Spanish shop having completed more than 120 one-off Triumph projects over its seven years in operation. For Tamarit’s 125th custom two-wheeler, the shop has turned its attention to the Hinckley firm’s Scrambler 900, transforming the British-built parallel twin into a vintage-inspired desert sled.

Dubbed the “Ongaku” — translating to “music” from Japanese — Tamarit’s latest one-off endeavor aims to deliver old-school scrambler looks while still affording competent off-roading abilities. The donor bike’s stock subframe has been lopped off and replaced with a chromed, upswept, hooped item that now accommodates a custom two-piece seat trimmed in brown suede. Beneath the bespoke two-piece saddle is a set of custom side covers that sport recesses that now accommodate a set of pod filters. Fortified behind a custom perforated skid plate, the build’s engine has also been gifted a custom exhaust that culminates in a heat-shielded and stacked set of slash-cut pipes with handmade grilles.

The front end of the Triumph has also been treated to a set of fork boots, a high-mounted front fender set on a custom bracket, and a chrome-grilled headlight set in a custom shroud. The aft-end of the machine has also received a high-mount rear fender that supports a circular vintage taillight and a license plate hanger. The rider’s quarters have also been bestowed with brass couplings and hardware and chrome Kustom Tech levers fitted with circular mirrors, brown grips, and bar-end LED indicators. Other noteworthy additions include a custom Tamarit-branded chain guard, a gold chain, chrome spoked wheels, Hagon Nitro dampers, and Galfer discs and pads. The project’s finishing touch comes in the form of a white and blue livery that’s contrasted via hand-laid gold leafing.

Based on the level of skill shown on its 125th build, we can only imagine the caliber of Tamarit Motorcycles’ projects in another decades’ time.
