Bike Of The Day: Custom Triumph “TT Deluxe”

This Triumph motorcycle has undergone a cafe racer-style transformation, skillfully executed by Jeremy Cupp of LC Fabrications in Grottoes, Virginia. Named “TT Deluxe,” the bike has earned acclaim and featured in various publications since its creation.

The custom-fabricated rigid frame draws inspiration from a 1910s Triumph design, featuring period-style lugs and a removable engine cradle. The handmade black fuel tank displays white scallops, copper-leaf Triumph logos, and integrated leather knee pads. The bike is equipped with street lighting for safety, including a headlight, taillamp, and LED turn signals.

Its 19″ wire-spoke wheels wear 4.00″ Firestone tires, complemented by a druid-type girder front fork and a single shock in the rear. Stopping power comes from a conical mini-drum brake in the front and a rear brake mounted to a jackshaft with a left-side drive sprocket.

Custom drop handlebars feature inverted clutch and brake levers, boardtracker-style grips, and a friction steering damper. The 865cc Triumph parallel twin engine breathes through dual Keihin CR smooth-bore carburetors with velocity stacks, coupled with a wrapped two-into-one custom high-mount exhaust system, delivering a dynamic and thrilling ride.
