2009 Triumph Thruxton

Posted on March 27, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

This is obviously based on the Thruxton racing bikes of the 60’s that lead to the huge Cafe Racer Revolution. They have done a great job keeping close to the original. Even hiding the fuel injection system in a pair of carburetors so it retains Thruxton’s legendary racing look.

I have read lots of great reviews of this bike and if i had a bit more cash I would definitely make some room in the garage for it.

Ace History lesson

I found this shot of a beautiful old 4 cyclinder Ace Motorcycle from 1920 and had to post it. The Ace Motor Corporation didn’t last long after numerous owners. It changed hands for the last time in 1927, when it was purchased by the Indian Motocycle Company. The Ace name was discontinued after a few years. Indian motorcycle production continued for another 25 years until 1945.

This old black and white shot of these guys riding the Ace motorcycles makes me want to race em…

I love their tag line on the website “The goods always belong to vintage spirit”..It doesn’t really make sense but I understand it. Deus stock their leather gloves as well.
