Custom Triumph Thruxton Shows Infinite Style

Sometimes people wonder whether Triumph deigned their Thruxton as one of the almost perfect bike for custom jobs. Seeing 8Negro's latest Thruxton re-make called Dalua, makes the aforementioned question seem even more legit.

Even though 8 Negro has only modified 2 Triumphs so far, Dani, the owner of Dalua, was enthralled, so he brought in his bike. However, he wanted something different from the previous two, so the challenge was accepted.

All the parts installed on the Dalua are to be found in 8Negro's shop, so the result is more or less easy to replicate on case you fell like bringing your bike to the custom side. The donor bike received aluminium footpegs, a polished steel chainguard, a small "Little Bastard" front fender, and a rear fender elimination kit.

Boludos exhausts, 5Hole headlight mounts, underseat relocated contact, a bar-end mirror and Coca-Cola rubber grips and a modern, yet retro-looking gauge came in place of their OEM counterparts. Add in pipe wrapping and the awesome Assen new seat, plus a top-drawer paint job, and you're ready to start slicing the streets and turn heads. Dani surely does this already!
