UYC Custom Bike by Death Machines of London
“Up Yours Copper” is an incredible custom motorcycle expertly crafted by the talented team at Death Machines of London.
“When people say ‘the devil’s in the detail’ what they actually mean is ‘detail is hell’. Resurrected from the earthly remains of a 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900, ‘Up Yours Copper’ is all about details, materials and one bloody thing after another.
We’ll start with the frame: finished in a deep coat of Beluga Black, it’s been de-lugged, weld cleaned and extensively modified with an entirely new rear. Engine work comprised of a gas flowed cylinder head and remapped fuelling to suit the custom exhaust system. The fuel pump and injection system have been remodelled and uprated with the oil cooler being removed as a weight reduction measure. Our velocity stacks, designed to assist the remapped fuelling programme, feature a brushed outer and mirror polished interior surface with etched brass grills and DMOL logo inlays. The sprocket is protected by our Sprocket Cage Type 1, which also features solid brass grills and an engraved name plate. Custom designed and copper coated injection caps together with powder coated engine covers and a copper plated cam cover complete the reconditioned 900.”
