I have this posted on the tRAT forum but fingured I'd posted it here as well. Wrapped up my custom thruxton build I've been working on. Its been many hours wrenching, calculating, and fitting parts but it rides like a dream.



 
That is one awesome ride mate well done, what forks are on the front they look trick. Could you list some of the mods you have used to complete this awesome looking ride and where you sourced them it will help fellow thruxton cafe custom builders, cheers Ben Dickens

ST3 calipers
ST3 brake lines

D675 Triple trees and stem
Woodcraft clipons with 1.5" rise
Triumph anodized front brake reservoir
Custom built excels wheels - 17x3.5" front 17x4.25" rear
TEC 2-1 exhuast
D675 front fender painted to match black gold stripe
Progressive 970 piggy back shocks
British Customs Airbox removal kit and fender eliminator kit
Arrow tuned ecu
Powder coated bits
All sorts of custom fabricated parts, brackets, odds and ends to make it all fit together.

Nope, already planning the round of mods for the up coming winter. Figured I'd ride it for the sumer first. Next up is...

Nissin 6 pot calipers with 5/8 master cylinder
Reupholster seat with alcantara suede
Maybe add single motogadget speedo/tach gauge
Maybe a new set of cams too

Some more progress made on the thruxton. Blacked out engine covers, small led blinkers, and steering damper installed.

The bike handles like a dream and is so much fun to ride. I have more fun on this than any sport bike. With only around 70hp you can rip the throttle and the suspension handles anything you throw a it. It does sit a little low in the front as the forks are not as long as the stock forks.
