This kind of build becomes quite obvious when two fans of cafe racers from an antiquated machine shake their greasy hands. One, a humble builder who always wanted to build bikes and nothing else in his life, and the second is the lead actor in the most wackiest of comic heros that have ever graced the Marvel comics universe, Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds who has added a Triumph Thruxton by Kott Motorcycles to his already to-die-for motorcycle collection. With a taste for classically styled machines, Ryan Reynolds not only wanted to convert this 2014 fuel-injected Triumph Thruxton into a classy cafe racer as much as it was technologically advanced, but to reveal that unrealised potential as well.

Dustin of Kott Motorcycles wanted to hint the bike with a tame attitude, and that came after his first ride. Hence, it started with adding some neat perforated steel panels to the frame. This gave way to the wiring harness, ECU, fuse box, fuel injection module, and downsized lithium battery. The Yamaha XS1100 fuel tank took the place of the stock one which had an in-tank fuel pump. While Dustin’s signature round bar tail unit accompanied the discreet LED taillight, a two-in-one stainless steel Arrow exhaust system ranked in place of the stock one.
