Maccomotors 3 "Dusty Pearl"
By Anthony van Someren - 04 Sep 13
This is Jose & Tito's Macco Nº3, a Triumph Bonneville SE otherwise known as Dusty Pearl, now that it's had the Maccomotors touch applied. The owner, Juan Manual, bought the bike in standard trim without knowing anything about the custom scene until he stumbled across Maccomotors Nº1 and got in touch with the guys to get his bike completely overhauled. His brief was to combine industrial looks with a retro feel. The cast wheels were dumped for wire-spoked hubs and rims - 18" front and 17" rear, followed by a whole host of quality parts, including Rizoma 22mm bars with polished shortie levers and Thomaselli grips. A single speedo, a 5 ¾ inch Bates headlight, Rizoma front brake and Wilber progressive fork springs complete the front end. Tyres are a mix of a Metzeler Tourance 140 rear and Dunlop 110 front. The sidepanels were made by Maccomotors, the ignition was relocated and racing footpegs were fitted. At the back, the subframe was chopped so support the rear seat, also by Maccomotors, Bitubo WME shocks replaced the OEM items, and the rear end was tidied up. The Exhaust is a Supertrapp. Thanks to Jose & Tito of Maccomotors for sharing, you can see more of thier work on their Facebook Pages and Website, and thanks to Sergio Ibarra from Semimate for the photos.
