Call­ing all scratch­ers

Dis­tin­guished Gen­tle­men and café rac­ers, here is your new steed. Tri­umph has an­nounced a limited run of the Thrux­ton Ace Spe­cial Edi­tion, named after the North London truck stop that be­came the mecca for ‘six­ties road burn­ers. The Thrux­ton Ace has sev­eral fea­tures to dis­tin­guish it from the stan­dard model; spe­cial paint and de­cals, sculp­tured Oxblood seat with de­tach­able seat hump, orig­i­nal style bar-end mir­rors, and a han­dle­bar mounted plaque of authentici­ty. Ac­cord­ing to Tri­umph’s Mark Berger, “We will only be get­ting a limited num­ber of th­ese spe­cial Thrux­tons, so we ex­pect cus­tomers to be lin­ing up. We hope to re­ceived our first ship­ment be­fore the end of the year.” The re­lease of the Thrux­ton Ace took place in Septem­ber on the Brighton seafront in south­ern Eng­land, where more than 25,000 fans rocked up. It’s be­lieved the lo­cal bar­bers quickly sold out of Bryl­creem.
