Not only do the Tarantulas have the coolest branding in the custom motorcycle building world, they can also build a pretty mean looking bike in an insanely short period of time. This is their latest build, a blacked out ’07 Triumph Thruxton they’ve named the “DOOMRIDER”.

The Doomrider Thruxton was transformed from stock in only a couple of weeks in what was primarily an aesthetic makeover. The list of modifications includes a set of Avon Roadriders tyres on the black painted rims, a fender elimination at the rear, custom plate for storing electrics under the seat, new turn signals, new brake light and a D9 gauge bracket with mini speedo.

The wheels, fork tubes, top tree, clip-ons, headlight bucket and signal housings were all powder coated in “end of the world” black. Then to conceal as much of the bikes bling as possible fork gators were added and the pipes were covered in black exhaust wrap.

Black is the new black. The Tarantulas
