‘I wanted style and speed’

Jens He­bish 2013 Tri­umph Thrux­ton

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

This 2013 Tri­umph Thrux­ton has been turned into a classy retro ca­pa­ble of any­thing.

Cre­ator Jens He­bish said: “I wanted to create the vin­tage look with a bike that can ac­tu­ally be rid­den prop­erly. I wanted style and speed with this ma­chine.”

The orig­i­nal Thrux­ton was re­built from the ground up as Jens tried to create a bike ca­pa­ble of high spir­ited track and road ac­tion.

The 900cc bike boasts a com­plete Tri­umph Race ex­haust

sys­tem, a quick­shifter and power com­man­der. Help­ing it to han­dle is the re­worked sus­pen­sion.

Jens had the bike painted and pow­der­coated with a matt-black fin­ish to give the bike a

no-non­sense look. Other changes in­clude the bars, footrests, tank, rear unit, seat and a Mo­to­gad­get dash is also fea­tured. The build took about six months and ac­cord­ing to Jens turned out bet­ter than he could have hoped.

Stripped-back vin­tage looks, but this bike can hus­tle

A clean Mo­to­gad­get dash keeps it sim­ple There’s noth­ing fussy about this Thrux­ton He­bish wanted a vin­tage style with de­cent speed
