Triumph Thruxton JPS tribute

Even if the black and gold paintscheme is a little confused (Norton are associated with JPS not Triumph) there’s no denying the quality of this modded Thruxton. Built by Austrian Triumph dealer Jurgen Schnaller and called the ‘Greymouth’ the bike features flat side Keihin carbs, Raask exhaust, high compression pistons, ported and polished head and high lift camshafts. Schnaller is claiming a...

I guess a lot of 40+ year olds will associate this sponsor and colour scheme with the Lotus Formula 1 Teams more than the bikes  (anyone remember the Lotus 72 and Lotus 77?).

JPS Thruxton

Doesn't do it for me. The 'JPS' doesn't even remotely make sense. The cost of parts and paint do not justify the cost for the bike at retail. This will be a one off anomaly.
