This thing is just plain cool.

Back in the early two thousands Steampunk was all the rage. Popularised by films like Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Hell Boy and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen the Steampunk design aesthetic made it's way into the world of custom bike building. Unfortunately though after a while it all became a bit too clichéd. Excessive copper embellishments, bizarre use of old plumbing fittings and an obsession with form over function turned me off the style all together. That was at least until Benjie from Benjie's Cafe Racer sent me details of his latest build... behold the BCR Triumph Thruxton Steampunk Racer!
