Manufactured by specialists

When we talk about inspiration or ideas, and we give it the importance it has, we almost never talk about operations or production.

It is difficult to explain each process of what we do in Tamarit, but today we are going to try. In this story we tell you how, in every project we work on, we face new challenges.

Each bike we make is unique and unrepeatable, this has a lot of creative and inspirational components. A person skilled with a pencil can draw almost anything. Today we are going to answer the eternal question: how do you make a motorcycle?

How is a motorcycle made?

The design part

Designing a bike is just the beginning, a first sketch with general lines, inspired by different eras, cars, boats and even nature. In future stories we will write about where inspiration comes from in Tamarit.

These drawings, contrasted in some cases with the client, are only the first lines. Afterwards, these lines have to be made possible in a three-dimensional space, where everything has to be stress-tested, fit perfectly or prove its influence on the temperature of the motorcycle. Calculations have to be taken into account by an engineer to verify the resistance of a part or the elasticity, etc…

The most complicated


The most complicated part of this process is that the part we have designed for one of our motorcycles has never been manufactured before. The phrase: “We build parts never made before” is true, in our projects many times we make a part that has never been produced before. This takes us hundreds of hours on top of something totally new, and this is what the experts of the sector like the most.

We are often mistaken for a workshop that makes transformations, but we are not, we are the largest Triumph specialist in the world. This means that what is valuable on our part is that we know every Triumph neoclassic bike to the millimeter and obviously it helps us to create parts on them.

Basically, if we had to make a summary of the parts we create, they would be: fiberglass parts, custom seats and metal parts, although in many occasions they merge with each other.

The tricky part is on the inside

Fiberglass parts

The process of the fiber is known worldwide, almost all current cars are prepared in fiberglass.

When we start from a design, the complicated part is on the inside, we work on the bike with plasticine and it is molded until we get the desired shape. We are talking about dozens of hours on top of a motorcycle placing plasticine until the desired shape is achieved, our expert and bodyworker works with his hands to shape the part.

Once this first part is achieved, fiberglass is placed to give rigidity to this part. When the part has rigidity, it has to be anchored to the motorcycle in spaces that do not damage other parts and that have the right resistance or that do not damage the architecture of the motorcycle.

After these processes, the thin part is worked on. The fine part is the putty before the painting, in this part small modifications are made once placed on the motorcycle. The first sketch is not always the right one, our designer (and founder), Quique, makes small modifications on the almost finished part.

To finish with this process, we could talk about many parts and we would like to give an example to understand it perfectly.

The belly pan of #121 Lauritz 2.0, a Thruxton R, has a work of: 20 hours of creation, 5 hours to adapt it to the chassis, 3 hours of checks, 8 hours of fine tuning, 5 more hours of aesthetic changes and 6 hours of painting. The part goes through all the processes of the workshop, approximately 10 different people.

Comfort and leather selection

Tailor-made seats

We can say that custom seats depend a lot on the chassis. In almost every project we do we change the architecture of the chassis, this means that if the bike has a seat, it has to be carved.

All our custom seats have a fiber base, a carved and sanded padding and an upholstery.

In the fiber base it is important that it can be anchored with some system that allows not to condemn the bike, that is to say, that almost all the seats are removed with two screws to be able to access the electronics of the bike.

The fiber base has a padding that is carved by hand with blades and sandpaper is given the form where the lines of the upholstery are marked with a marker, for when they are sent to upholster.

Each bike has a different upholstery and the materials are selected for each project, we usually use a nautical material resistant to water and heat. We don’t like to use real leather because a motorcycle is outdoors and these materials are easily damaged.

Technical approvals

Iron and architecture

This is the most technical part of our work, when we talk about iron, we always talk about the chassis or small parts, worked in 3D by CNC aluminum, water cutting or laser cutting.

These modifications we always work with engineers and specialists to help us check that all the work we are doing, will be accepted in the laboratory. Iron is, perhaps, the part that participates in all the processes.

Continuing with the example of the belly pan, the interior has an iron structure that is anchored to the chassis. Even when we talk about a custom seat, these have iron pivots to anchor to the chassis.

Our chief mechanic is in charge of supervising all these parts that give security to the bike. This part is the most serious for us, safety.
