Resurrected from the dead


It’s not very often we see resurrection stories outside of The Evil Dead or various other TV programs, but this deadly manifestation by Death Machines of London (DMOL) is undoubtedly a notable mention. Aptly named ‘Up Yours Copper,’ this gorgeous design is a build upon a recovered 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900.

Intricately found along the bike are details that demand the love and affection that went into putting them there in the first place. There are only so many words that can be used to describe this animal, so I won’t even try – what I will do is point out its outstanding features. Up Yours Copper has an elegantly simple etched brass speed gauge which sits toward the nose of the bike – while the rest of the body compliments this material with a cloak of brushed and powder coated aluminum, not to mention the hand-carved American Walnut wooden seat constructed out of seventeen parts.

The bike greets you with hand-bent sweeping handlebars, knurled to perfection. Be sure to look a lot closer to prevent missing the details that truly accentuate this reborn rebel. With gorgeous detailing going into the brass grills and custom exhausts, this bike has been through a remarkable rebuild, and the guys at DMOL expressed this clearly when saying “Up Yours Copper wasn’t easy to build. Newly finished tanks got dropped, drill bits snapped, lathes broke, blood got spilled and always just when we really could’ve done without it. But no pain no gain right?” No pain, no gain indeed guys, great job.
