"Faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death." This Hunter S. Thompson quote served as inspiration for and appears on the stunning Death Machines Of London Up Yours Copper Motorcycle. Based on a 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900, every piece on the bike — save for the Spitfire toggle switches — is either modified or custom. That includes the exhaust, with ceramic coated pipes and a carbon fiber muffler that exits through a hole in the center of the rear light, the hand-carved American Walnut seat, the bushed aluminum light cowl with integrated speedometer, the sweeping, hand-bent bars, and even the sprocket cover with solid brass grills.
