Based in sunny Alicante (Spain), custom motorcycle and parts shop Tamarit is famous for the gorgeous Triumph Scramblers it produces. Besides looking delicious, the builds are also very rideable – feature that we seldom see on other pretty-face-no-function modern custom bikes.
The latest gem to roll of Tamarit’s garage is called ‘Ronin’ ($15.500) – like the ancient wandering Japanese samurais. Built to be used on a daily basis, not just the weekends, the bike started as a 2004 Triumph Bonneville with a 865cc parallel twin engine, and it took the “muchachos” a total of 45 days to complete the transformation.
For improved off-road skills, the Scrambler now sports a pair of Öhlins shocks, Renthal handlebars topped off with Biltwell camel grips, and Continental TKC 80s chunky tires that are also pavement-friendly. Since Tamarit also produces fine components, the bike had to display some: Tamarit Scrambler Seat, “Boca negra” pipes, Highsider black mirrors, black blinkers, crankcase cover & chain cover, and the classic “Gran Bastard” front mudguard. Finished off with a glorious paint job (also done in-house), the ‘Ronin’ looks ready to tackle the dusty Spanish countryside.
