Second Hand Triumph Thruxton Cafe Racer
Reading time: 3 minutes.
A good part of the customers who want to start a unique Tamarit motorcycle project are not yet motorcycle owners, so we are often presented with the opportunity to go through the aftermarket. Our goal in these cases is always the same: to get the ideal motorcycle that is the perfect base for the new transformation project. In Tamarit we do not work under any circumstances as a trading platform, but we have a reserve of various well-preserved and tuned motorcycle models with which to start the build. The second-hand Thruxton Café Racer is no exception, since it is one of the most popular Modern Classics, in a style that is still immortal and is spectacular mounted on a motorcycle of this family.
Second-hand Triumph Thruxton Café Racer characteristics
In this case, the strategy is based on getting Thruxton motorcycles first, be it Thruxton 900, Thruxton 1200, 1200 R or RS motorcycles, depending on the customer's needs, which may require one or other features. The Café Racer, in this case, is a style that is applied to Thruxton motorcycles (they already have a classic look) a posteriori, so it is not so frequent to find used Thruxton Café Racer motorcycles, since It must be already modified motorcycles.

Thruxton motorcycles are very malleable within the Café Racer style, although being eminently used on asphalt, it is not feasible to transform it into other styles such as the Brat Style. With incredible technological features that do not compromise on classic aesthetics, the entire Thruxton bike can be converted into a splendid Thruxton Café Racer, just by modifying the seat (stripping it of the bulky rear fender), the keel (instead of the crankcase cover), and the fairings and front grilles.
Triumph Thruxton Café Racer Price
As we said, the Triumph Thruxton Café Racer already modified to this mythical style are usually in short supply in the market and are at much higher prices than the models that are sold with their base configuration. The range strongly depends on who used it, the possible modifications and the mileage withing other common aspects.
If what you are looking for is a Thruxton base to convert it to Café Racer, here the price will also depend and to a large extent on the chosen model, since we can find from the oldest, the Thruxton 900 cc, around € 9,000, up to the 1200 R, which goes to € 10,000.
How to achieve the perfect Thruxton Café
At Tamarit Motorcycles, it is common practice to recommend the client to purchase a second-hand / second-hand motorcycle to start a new Café Racer project, since these motorcycles tend to adapt better to those that come from the factory, although some clients prefer them to be brand new.
