Starting to look more at other people's attempts to custom/mod the Triumph Thruxton. The seat is the next thing I wanna do, I quite like this seat. I have to be able to put my girflfriend on the back now and then though. Gotta work that out. The paint job on this is kinda interesting – the cream parts mainly. I like that it ends up looking like a 'bitsa', a bit of a mongrel. Hate that little mudgaurd, but love the exhaust. Not sure about the whole Fender thing? That seems a bit camp to me. And fuck I have a 67 Jag and a 76 Twin Reverb, so it's not like I'm anti-Fender or anything. I just don't see the point in this sort of pretend collaboration. It's a bit Orange County Choppers or something... whinge, moan, etc.
