Thrux­ton cus­tom is fit for a prince

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

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.

Fit for a prince… the de­bolex has been com­mis­sioned by roy­alty
