Tamarit Circe Turns a Triumph Bonneville into Baroque Work of Art

Spanish custom motorcycle specialist Tamarit has rolled out another Triumph-based creation, decked out in a distinct baroque-style design theme. With more than 120 custom builds under its belt, Tamarit has focused on lavish customisations and zeal for embracing mythology with the moniker ‘Circe’ being named after a Greek goddess.

Like any custom motorcycle, it’s more about the details than raw numbers and here a 2004 Triumph Bonneville serves as a delectable canvas. The colour scheme for one has been inspired by various works of the Baroque era with a combination of shiny chrome and brass. Just like any 17th-century works of art, Tamarit uses chrome plating and mixes it with brass machining which gives a jewel-like shine during light.

Up-front you can see a retro-themed headlight design along with beautiful brass-plated springs while chrome/brass combination also trickles down to the wheels and the brakes. Even the handmade leather seat is different to other motorcycles with its design and the way it sits flush with the fuel tank. The ignition key is hidden in the front seat and you simply need to bring the key close to it to start the motorcycle- something done so to keep the motorcycle clutter-free in terms of design. That philosophy is also explained by the speedometer being placed on the front side of the bike and it is also stripped of needless information.

The extreme lengths to which the folks at Tamarit have gone to keep the aesthetics intact are also shown with all of the wiring tucked away and hidden from plain sight. Of course, there is no place for a standard fork set-up here and instead, you get a chrome Springer fork – something which proved to be a challenge to fit on a Triumph.

Everything else is also custom-made including the fibreglass rear fender, aluminium handles along with a new gear-shifter. A vintage carburetted Bonneville motor is an apt engine for this motorcycle while Tamarit has fully restored this powertrain and added K&N air filters too.

Instead of building for one client, Tamarit will auction the Circe at the Salon Retromobile 2023 in Paris and rightly so since this is a rolling sculpture and an exquisite piece of art. Compared to its earlier creation, Jade, Tamarit has veered towards the extreme with Circe and created one of the most gorgeous custom motorcycles ever made.
