Triumph’s Thruxton motorcycle is one of the most prolific tuning platforms for aftermarket motorcycle builders, and a handful of amazing custom projects that utilize the modern cafe racer have been steadily unveiled throughout the year. Zeus Custom, a renowned Bangkok-based builder, has once again transformed the Thruxton into a work of art — and this time, the bike pays homage to some of the best years in motorcycle culture — “the Wild ’90s.”
The Thruxton 900 was the perfect project for Zeus — utilizing an already immaculate bike that would receive a handful of custom design and aesthetic upgrades. The 865cc DOHC, four-stroke twin engine was dressed in a slew of newly introduced, custom-machined parts that were tailored specifically for the Triumph, including a pair of powder-coated front and rear aluminum fenders, a Coffee Bean saddle adorned in leather upholstery, and classic 1960 Zeus one-inch handlebars. An Ohlins rear suspension and front fork were paired with two ultra-knobby Mitas E-07 tires, helping the bike to adopt a new, intimidating stance that’s perfect for all-terrain use. The “Wild 90s” summate a time when adventure and exploration were a crucial part of everyday life, and Zeus Custom’s Triumph Thruxton 900 is the perfect all-around racer — paying respect to the spirit of the bygone era.
