Death Machines of London has unveiled the stunning "Up Yours Copper," based on a 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900 and made in memory of the legendary writer Hunter S. Thompson. The progenitor of "gonzo" journalism would appreciate that the machine was "a bastard to build," in the words of the DMOL crew. Every component -- with the exception of the Spitfire toggle switches -- was modified. The list includes the bespoke exhaust, featuring ceramic coated pipes and a carbon fiber muffler, as well as the carved American Walnut seat and sweeping, hand-bent bars, with machined grips and in-house levers in brushed aluminium. Check out detailed looks below.
