Triumph Thruxton by Down & Out Cafe Racers

Sep 22, 2015

One of Britain’s most notable custom shops, Down & Out Cafe Racers, has designed an impressive-looking Triumph Thruxton. And, here’s the kicker, it only took them three weeks total.

Their base bike is a 2015-model Thruxton, and the biggest change made to the stock design is the addition of a wide fork kit, which they used so that they could run 16×3 wheels with bigger tires. The new bike also sports a custom seat (which Down & Out uses on all of their Triumph builds). There wasn’t much work done to the engine, but for a slight boost, the shop used a modified airbox, a custom stainless exhaust system and an ECU remap for sharper engine response. Slap a coat of rust orange paint on it, and you’ve got yourself one good-looking motorcycle.
