Scrambler style is our favorite of the vintage style line up. It’s an ideal everyday ride, for around town or even some light off road work. And that’s why this custom started, when we were approached our client who wanted to customize their bike for their biggest Kustom Kulture event, Suryanation Motorland 2015. They choose 2013 Triumph Thruxton 900 as a donor bike and needed this bike as their Iconic Bike. Just wanted something more than the standard offering from Triumph. The biggest idea was to build something simple and with a strong look at the same time, and now here it is, THE RISE for Suryanation Motorland 2015.
The first thing we designed an original Thruxton’s look to be a scrambler style. We reviewed the look of vintage scramblers and trail bikes, with their high seats and compact lines. After we got an approval work started to trim the Thruxton into something cleaner. The first step we need to released the rear body sectors. Crafted a piece of 1.2 mm-thick galvanized plate sheet that integrated with the frame to perfection, and that looks 100% factory like front an rear fender and seat. For wheel sectors absolutely we choose Takasago Excel spoke wheels 17X3.00 inch and 17X4.00 inch with Avon Distanzia 120/70-17and 160/60-17 for front and back. A clubman handlebar was removed and changed to 1 inch fatbar handlebar to make it fit with a new style. Look at the paint on the body! beautiful painted by Komet Studio with a dark and light red color based and he put a SURYANATION at the tank as a brand name and Suryanation Motorland logo at the side cover.
The build is restrained and practical, with the bike running indicators and fenders, rims and good quality rubber. It’s got new Ohlins suspension at the rear and more comfortable seat. THE RISE is one of the rare builds that you’ll see which manage to refine the looks of the original without sacrificing reliability or safety. We got to be one very happy client!.
