My Triumph Black Prince (Thruxton)

Hey guys,

So as you know Ive been working on this for ages, especially the badges etc. Cosmetically I think we are all done!

Ive got no money left but Im the happiest man on earth right now.

Please be kind...oh, and the reason why its called the 'Black Prince' is because the bike my grandad always dreamt of owning was the 'Vincent Black Prince' so its kind of in his honor!

Let me know what you think, and excuse the terrible pic of me, but I love it!!!

Very nice! Please tell me where you got the seat. I've been looking for a brown Thruxton seat for my bonnie for ages - planning on removing the cowl, but still like the look. Triumph made a great looking one years ago for the sixty8 line of products but it's long gone everywhere.

Superb paint job. The detailing on the tank and seat cowl is outstanding. Very classy

Absolutely gorgeous work...the paint work and emblems are exceptional. Well worth living in poverty for a bit...

Absolutely beautiful. The paint job reminds me of a lot the Ewan McGregor Bonneville, but it looks even better on a Thruxton.

What the others said. Fantastic work.

I like my bikes like I like my women: heavy and slow.
