Characteristics of the second-hand Triumph Thruxton 1200
In Tamarit we are not dedicated to the sale of second-hand motorcycles, but many times we are forced to resort to this market to get motorcycles for our clients. Many of the people who contact us to get a Tamarit motorcycle do not have their own motorcycle, so we facilitate this process by buying the one that best suits the final style they want to achieve. Depending on the result that the client is looking for or the specific style that they want to achieve, we can go in search of a second-hand Triumph Bonneville or Triumph Thruxton 1200 R.

This will depend a lot on whether you are going to make a subsequent build or not, since in the case of leaving it as it is purchased, it is necessary that the paint and the exterior finish are in as good condition as the engine. For Tamarit this facet is not so important, since our projects are painted again with exclusive designs that we create for the motorcycles of our clients. The bikes we buy are restored from the paint to the engine block.
