Custom Triumph motorcycle is a tribute to Hunter S. Thompson

This custom motorcycle was built by Death Machines of London.  It’s called the UYC and it was resurrected from the corpse of a 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900.  It’s a truly unique ride that utilizes materials like copper, brass, and wood.  The tribute to Hunter S. Thompson also includes a quote of his engraved on the fuel tank.  It reads:

Faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.

Icon 1000 built this bad*ss bike from a Triumph Tiger 800xc

This motorcycle was a collaboration between Icon 1000 and Triumph.  It’s called the Dromedarii and was made from the bone structure of a Triumph Tiger 800xc.  The motorcycle has a very rugged look that makes it seem like it has taken a beating but is  ready to handle much more.
