The gifted moto specialists over at Timokhin Custom Design go about their daily business in the Russian capital of Moscow. Browsing the company’s website reveals some downright bonkers bespoke machines, and the bike you see here is perhaps the juiciest of them all. Let’s take a second to admire this one-off masterpiece, shall we?

Before arriving on TCD’s doorstep, the bike was an ordinary Thruxton 900 from Triumph’s range. Within its tubular steel cradle frame, the donor in question packs an air-cooled DOHC parallel-twin powerplant with four valves per cylinder and a sizeable displacement of 865cc.

This mill is good for up to 69 hp at 7,250 rpm and 53 pound-feet (72 Nm) of torque available at approximately 5,750 revs. A five-speed gearbox carries the engine’s force to a chain final drive, enabling the Thruxton to run the quarter-mile in 13.2 seconds. The top speed is generously rated at 115 mph (185 kph).

Moscow’s moto gurus began by discarding the bike’s factory bodywork in favor of their own unique attire. That includes a slim gas tank and a surreal front fairing, as well as one venomous tail section sitting atop the beast’s revised subframe module. Between Thruxton’s new fuel chamber and its custom tail, you will spot a neat leather saddle rounding out the cosmetics.

Additionally, the behemoth’s front end was adorned with a grilled LED headlight and aftermarket turn signals for good measure. As soon as these items were installed, the crew removed the rear suspension setup entirely to make way for a top-shelf monoshock and a single-sided swingarm fabricated in-house.

Up front, suspension duties are handled by a premium pair of Marzocchi inverted forks, while stopping power is summoned by dual 320-mm (12.6-in) brake discs and high-grade calipers from Brembo. The finishing touches come in the form of K&N air filters and a fresh exhaust system, along with a Power Commander control unit running the entire show.
