Add Ryan Reynolds To The List Of Custom Triumph Thruxton Owners

You probably know Ryan Reynolds from his many acting gigs, including his most recent gig as the star of the action/anti-superhero flick, “Deadpool.” But did you know he also rides motorcycles? A rider since the age of 15, when he bought a Honda CB750 – a “pile of crap,” as he calls it – from a friend of his. The machine itself may have been in tattered condition, but the experience changed his life as he has loved riding ever since.

And now that he’s got a few bucks to his name he’s able to afford some nicer motorcycles, including this Triumph Thruxton he commissioned Kott Motorcycles to build for him. Noting that there are many custom motorcycle builders out there, Reynolds says he naturally gravitated towards Kott’s style for the minimalist cafe racer style.

Kott’s custom Thruxton for Reynolds may look nothing like a wild build, but closer inspection will reveal that a lot of work goes in to making a motorcycle appear as minimal as possible. Many of the visible differences center around the rear of the motorcycle, as the factory subframe was removed and a custom one installed in its place. From there a custom tail and seat were fitted and extraneous parts were removed, including both fenders, emissions equipment, and a portion of the front sprocket cover. Engine-wise, it appears a less restrictive exhaust was fitted to let the parallel-Twin breathe a little easier, and the throttle bodies that look like carburettors have done away with the stock airbox in favor of individual runners. All this is capped with custom paintwork.

What do you think of the Reynolds’ Triumph Thruxton done by Kott Motorcycles? See the video below to learn more about Reynolds’ history with two wheels and leave a comment below.
