Medusa Fabrication is a small 3 man workshop run by two fabricators/blacksmiths (Chad & Theo) and a mechanic (Tyler). Out of their workshop in Kansas they produce Cafe Racers and custom motorcycles that feature unique, hand fabricated components and smartly recycled and reclaimed parts. The Medusa Triumph Thruxton Cafe Racer is Theo's own ride which has become a showcase of the workshops skills and a testing platform for their ideas. Here's Theos story of how it all came together...
The Thruxton just kept coming together in this wabi sabi (侘寂: aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection) kind of way, from the foot controls to the tacho, the fuel sight gauge, and all the little details in between. And then there’s always the dreaded wiring nightmare! I ended up hitting my point and called Tyler, together we ended up ditching the old harness and making a new one, it's so basic now, and it all fits nicely inside the rear cowl."
