Freedom Machine: Triumph “Libertas” Scrambler

Triumph Scrambler

Tamarit Motorcycles builds a 60s-style scrambler for American shores…

Tamarit Motorcycles has quickly become one of our favorite builders, especially when it comes to modern Triumph machines. The Spanish workshop was born from humble origins — a cramped garage with a patchwork roof, where they turned out a series of just six handmade parts.

Fast forward to 2021, and Tamarit’s headquarters have moved from from that cramped garage to a central street in the coastal city of Elche where they have their offices, workshop, showroom, and even a shop bar.

They now offer 150+ custom Triumph parts, and they’ve completed more than 70 full-blown custom Triumph builds, including their Bonneville “Laia” scrambler and Gullwing-inspired Thruxton we previously featured.

The company has been steadily gaining popularity in the US, and today we’re thrilled to feature the Tamarit no. 72, “Libertas,” built for an American client:

“Seven Tamarit bikes can now be seen on American roads, and this country has become the new home of the Tamarit family.”

This Triumph was inspired by the golden motorcycling age of the 60’s, especially the BSA machines of the period. Their customer, James, wanted a classic scrambler that incorporated vintage styling cues and details:

“He didn’t want a Scrambler with a black engine, he wanted everything to be chrome in combo with some brass details, a gentlemanly style.”

Rarely have we seen chrome look so glorious on a modern bike, while the chassis itself received an even more special treatment:

“Libertas has been completely chromed, with the exception of the chassis, which has received an exclusive nickel plating, carried out by professionals to ensure the correct application of the anti-rust treatment.”

The exhaust is another the signature elements of the build, no doubt, harking back to the scrambler pipes of the 1960s desert sleds.

“In this case, Mass exhausts have been incorporated but a custom protector was made to fit the classic style of the bike, since the original has a modern design.”

We’re also big fans of the camel split seat — a throwback to the Triumph desert sleds of old — and the hand-sewn grips.

“This project has been made from zero, without saving anything.”

As for the electronics, the “Libertas” scrambler incorporates Motogadget technology with an app that provides information about parking location, distance traveled, fuel level, etc., as well as a proximity start and alarm system.

The result is one of the elegant yet aggressive modern scramblers we’ve seen — hopefully we’ll be seeing more of these builds on US shores!
