Yamaha XJR1300 Anniversary

Triumph Thruxton Gray

Triumph Bonneville T120

Owner of this T120 knows technical maintenance as he is chief mechanic on giant ships. He wanted classic timeless design with modern performance.

There are several modifications in the engine itself; power commander, hi perf camshaft, sporty intake, exhaust and more.

We’ve changed the rims into tubeless,  wider 18″ to mount low profile tires.

We’ve painted all the silver parts black on we brassed them. To avoid “bling bling” effect we’ve patined the parts and hand-brushed them for the retro look.

I love the idea of performance machines looking like a vintage one.

Be aware of this one if you meet on the road!

Triumph Thruxton RS Vintage

In 2020, Triumph released the most powerful model in the history of the Modern Classic range. The Thruxton RS offers adrenaline-inducing levels of performance in a classically styled package. The new model features top-shelf components, a high-performance parallel-twin engine and improved suspension and brakes. But, like all factory-built bikes, each one that rolls off the factory floor looks identical to the last.

Earlier this year in Poland, 3 of the first customers to purchase the new Thruxton RS approached the crew at Unikat hoping to inject some individuality into their bikes. Never one to shy away from a challenge Grzegorz Korczak and the Unikat Motorworks team happily obliged.

Triumph Thruxton RS TAG

 Building Triumph Thruxton RS TAG was one of the greatest adventures and pleasures.

The client (also a friend of our workshop)

is, in my opinion the most experienced businessman in Polish motorcycle industrie.

Mikołaj give us a lot of trust and brand new Thruxton RS

from his Triumph dealership shop.

His reference was:

“I want it mean green and eyes catchy!

And I want those amazing tubeless spoke wheels on top”.

The most important thing was that the sound of this motorcycle should be as distinctive as the driving characteristics.

I’m not a fan of loud exhausts but the engine clang must have “that thing”. Our mufflers look like trimmed double tubes – nothing could be further from the truth. In order to achieve this effect, it is necessary to change the geometry of the exhaust pipes so that the gases do not heat the swing-arm.

It’s easy to say “we’ll repaint the injectors, manifolds, suspension, swing-arm and all the other silver parts.” However, modern motorcycles are so densely packed with electronics, ABS, etc., that access to certain elements often resembles putting together a Rubik’s cube.

The aftermarket LED headlight has no space for electric cubes, etc. so we had to modify the beam and wiring to hide them under the tank. The lamp is mounted on the handle of our construction and specially turned “pipes” for this project so that the lags do not show rings. Sports clip-ons required milling the top triple-clamp to make everything elegantly fit.

Dismantling the front shock absorbers to black anodize also takes a few nice man hours.

LED indicators and mirrors made of polished steel in the ends of the steering wheel are other flavors on the steering wheel. Hand-woven leather with threads in the color of the upholstery have become our hallmark. And cleanse with the green thread!

The back of the bike gave us the most trouble. The client liked our idea with a spoiler, but it is a long and bumpy road from visualization to implementation. It turned out that in this model the designers placed the computer controlling the machine at the very end of the frame – right under the passenger seat. The combination of aesthetics, functionality and safety took us a while, but the final effect is uncompromising. Reconstruction of the tail of the frame, reduction of the passenger footrest frame forced us to remove the whole frame, sand blast it  and powder coat it.

We also took care of replacing the plastic tank of the brake fluid with the aesthetic aluminum one from Rizoma.

A great accent (of our domestic -Polish production) are the quality levers by Womettech, which we could also personalize.

I am particularly proud of the designer license plate holder (with mini LED backlight) of our own design – available soon in our online store.

TAG is an autograph of street artists.

One of a kind hand craft!

Triumph Thruxton RSReder

“Triumph has always taken care to achieve a high-quality finish and use premium components,” says Grzegorz. “This is also the case with the new Thruxton RS. But at the same time, large factories have to optimize production, which results in some compromises when it comes to design.” Aesthetically the Unikat team agreed the use of silver on the RS detracted from its exclusive feel. So pulling back on the amount seen on each bike would be the first styling challenge. Next was replacing the ungainly plastic turn signals. And thirdly finding an alternative to the oversized tail lamp.”

Triumph Thruxton Golden

“Each owner had their own idea of ​​the perfect Thruxton RS and each had their own list of preferences. One wanted his bike to look aggressive; ‘The motorcycle must be matte black with red accents.’ Another focused on sporty elegance – ‘glossy metallic deep black combined with golden elements!’ and both opted for amazing tubeless and super light Kineo wheels. The ability to stipulate the spoke nipple and hub colours also allowed for additional personalisation. Hidenau Supermoto K73 tires add all-round performance improvements and the whole set up results in a significant reduction in rotating mass.”

Ducati 750SS 1974

After two weeks of tedious and thorough analysis of examples of each model from around the world, we found a near-perfect Ducati GT750 for the right price. When Rafał said: ‘Yes, let’s buy it!” we wasted no time carrying out the transaction and arranging transportation of the motorcycle to Poland. When the bike finally arrived and the courier unloaded it from his van we watched nervously from fear that it would be damaged, but it made the journey unscathed. Closing the Unikat workshop that night, Grzesiek probably used all of the chains and locks we had to keep the precious Ducati safe.

“Why those two bikes you ask? Well, the GT750 was the Italian’s prototype of their 90-degree V-twin engine format and was the basis for the legendary race bike of Paul Smart which won the 1972 Imola 200. The second model, the Ducati 750SS was built to commemorate this remarkable race track victory.

Reversible Replica – Unikat Ducati GT750

BMW x Porsche = UNIKAT

Nutmeg Brown Metalic is the iconic color of Porsche.

Michał, a client already friends with us, knew that it was his choice. We added golden stripes to brighten up and make this paint job more dynamic. We also proposed adding a tuning belly-pan fairing, which adds a sporty character.

Stitching the upholstery a la Lamborgini, leather handcrafted grips, adjustable levers, LED lighting and painting ALL silver elements black are the next stages of work.

A huge effect is done by a lightweight and great-sounding muffler from the Italian ZARD manufacture, which we distribute.

Honda CB900C 1981 Cafe

We bought Honda CB 900 C in 2014 because we wanted to build a classic, but also strong caferacer. We were a bit afraid of this unusual construction with the double 10-speed gearbox. However, the year of its creation, identical to the birth of the founder of the UNIKAT company, told us that it was destiny …

After almost five years of work, we have completed, among others:

– hand-polished aluminum elements

– transfer of the battery under the swingarm axle

– reducing the weight of the motorcycle by removing a lot of factory elements

– wheel conversion from Honda Comstar to spoked wheels on Takasago rims

– 17 inch Metzeler tires

– new varnishing with asparuns

– hand-woven leather grips

– Dynojet Stage III nozzles

– leather sofa upholstery

– MotoGadget front turn signals, in the tip of the steering wheel

– rear direction indicators hidden in the seat cover

– brake light integrated with the license plate light
