Thruxton custom is fit for a prince
Following the Buell XB9 build that we featured a few weeks ago, debolex mastermind Calum Pryce-tidd hasn’t been taking a break, instead forging ahead with a motorcycle that is fit for a prince – literally.
His latest build has been commissioned by middle eastern royalty and it’s reflected in the finish of the bike. It’s understated, beautifully finished and will go like stink – when it’s finished.
“It’s not quite done yet. We’ve got to wire the whole thing up with a new ECU”, says PryceTidd. “We’ll probably be another month on that, but it’s going to be a really trick loom. It’ll have a quickshifter on it and different maps as well, so although it’ll look good it’ll go good as well.”
The bike’s components have been uprated and work well with the rolling chassis, which was good to begin with.
“We didn’t want to mess with the geometry, so kept the frame and engine stock. We’ve upgraded the rest of the bike with Maxton forks, Maxton shocks, dressed the wheels up a bit and given it bigger Brembo brakes.”
The bike also features an aluminium tank, bellypan, radiator, tail unit and a custom exhaust.
