Triumph Thruxton 900 'Mighty Blue' by Maria Motorcycles

Today’s special bike comes from Lisbon, Portugal, where local customizar Maria Motorcycles has transformed a 2010 Triumph Thruxton 900 into the awesome machine you can admire in these pictures, which has been re-dubbed ‘Mighty Blue‘.
What they wanted to do with this project was to give the Thruxton a radical and extreme overall visual, and they chose the Thruxton model rather than the usual Bonnevile because of its better engine specifications and breaking power.

Before you ask, the engine is all original, just with a tune up on the injection and all of the filters removed.
All the original controls, mirrors and instruments were taken out in order to give the bike a simpler and lower front end.

The handlebar was changed into a larger 81 cm and painted in white: in combination with the small custom speedo and headlight, it tuned the the front-end in a pretty minimal structure.
Also at the back the kept the whole thing simple, with the original frame that got cut to give it a lighter look, while smaller black mudguard and backlight finished the job.

Aesthetically, they tried to get rid of all the chromed bits they could and turned them into black.
The original exhaust system was taken away and replaced with new predator mufflers covered with thermo resistant black matte paint.
This dark side makes for a nice contrast with the fuel tank, that is somewhat inspired by the old school nascar racecars.
The saddle is smaller than the original, is totally custom made and wrapped in beige leather to give it a sort of dirt and desert appearance.
