With the release of our first wide wheel scrambler in 2021, there was another project in the kitchen that started at exactly the same time - a Carburetted Triumph Thruxton Scrambler 900, the older brother of the Black 2017 T100, . Purchased in Bathurst, and sent up to us for surgery.

The rider Hugh wanted this bike to be his fun Sunday run around. He has a Speedmaster for long distance riding, and a Harley Davidson Shovelhead to make sure there’s always something to work on in his shed. The main goal of this bike was to create a bike fun to rip around on, a few gravel roads, but most of all to be an object of envy for his mates. 

Our mods list on the Thurxton Scrambler includes;

  • Rear suspension mounts were removed and rebuilt
  • Brakes rebuilt and braided lines made for the set-up, with a set of Accossato levers.
  • Carburettors were swapped out with a set of Mikuni RS and DNA pod filters
  • Wide wheel kit installed from Canyon Motorcycles
  • The front end upgraded to a set of Protaper bars
  • Full Purpose Built Moto lighting suite - 7” flashpoint classic and integrated indicators
  • Purpose Built Moto Black Box Control Relay
  • Tail of the bike has been chopped and shortened up, and the stock side covers removed to be replaced by some hand made aluminium covers with some ally extrusion detailing
  • Exhaust has been built high with a 2-into-1 collector running into a Purpose Built Moto 2” torpedo muffler
  • Tank painted and custom leather seat

Hey Tim, I’ll send you an email to talk about your honda cafe racer project,


I love the Honda 400 four you did. Wish I still had mine. I live in California, what would it cost me to have the same thing done,except factory red and a black seat, grips and kicker wrap .
