When a group of people band together for the benefit of a charity amazing things happen and this Thruxton Cafe Racer is no exception. Roland Sands Designs in conjunction with Triumph and a handful of generous builders have just completed their second custom motorcycle to be auctioned off to raise funds for the Tony Hawk foundation.
As this Cafe Racer was set to be auctioned off keeping it functional and legal was a priority. A selection of the best Triumph performance parts along with RSD Triumph components and some bolt on upgrades replaced many of the bikes standard components without breaking either of those rules.
The Thruxton’s Cafe Racer styling was already on brief so rather than a full redesign a new paint scheme and tail section were applied to complete the look. The bikes tank, headlight bucket, air box covers and rims have been custom painted in two tone red with hand laid pinstripes and the latest Tony Hawk emblems.
The result is a great looking modern Cafe Racer that not only looks and perform great but will also help do great things for the kids supported by the Tony Hawk foundation. I’m already looking forward to seeing what they have in store for next years auction.
Kudos to all of the generous companies that contributed these parts and services for their generosity:
